MANILA, Philippines- Inaprubahan ng Kamara sa ikatlo at huling pagbasa ang panukala na nag-uutos sa higher education institutions or HEIs na isama ang komprehensibong pag-aaral ng Philippine history noong World War II sa curriculum.

Sa nominal voting result na 275-0-0 (yes-no-abstain), handa nang i-transmit ang House Bill (HB) No. 5719 sa Senado.

“The State shall put in place a mechanism that shall highlight the role of national heroes in the historical development of the country and thus educate the youth on the values of patriotism and nationalism and preserve for posterity the stories on the great struggle and heroism of Filipino soldiers who fought the Japanese occupational forces during the war,” saad sa HB No.5719.

“A comprehensive study of Philippine history during World War II shall be integrated into and shall cover a reasonable percentage of the mandatory Philippine History subject being offered under the general education curriculum in higher education courses of all higher education institutions (HEIs) in the country,” dagdag nito.

Malaki ang ginampanang papel ng Pilipinas sa World War II, partikular na sa “Pacific theater” ng giyera.

Ang panukala ay konsolidasyon ng HB Nos.933 at4157, na inihain nina Pasig lone district Rep. Roman Romulo at Northern Samar 2nd district Rep. Harris Christopher Ongchuan.

“Within one hundred eighty (180) days from the effectivity of this Act, the CHED shall, in coordination with the NHCP and the PVAO-DND, formulate and issue the rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this Act,” batay sa panukala.

Hinihikayat din nito ang lahat ng HEIs “to keep in their libraries adequate books, resources, and reference materials on World War II as it transpired in the Philippines”. RNT/SA
