    VP Leni chides DepEd for modules that “poison” the minds of students

    VP Leni chides DepEd for modules that “poison” the minds of students

    Vice President Leni Robredo said the Department of Education (DepEd) should be held responsible for modules that she said “poison” people’s minds.

    “Responsibility nila ito eh. ‘Yung DepEd dapat hindi nagpapalabas ng anything—not just because ako ‘yung nasa receiving end ng ginawa—pero kahit ano na magpo-poison sa minds ng mga tao, dapat hindi ‘yun pinapalusot ng DepEd,” Robredo said when asked to comment on reports that a DepEd learning module includes questions that are biased against her.

    Earlier in Pangasinan, where Robredo was the first candidate to grace “The Education President: Interviews with Presidential Aspirants on Philippine Education” forum, the Vice President said she had seen the alleged module but has not ascertained its authenticity.

    In the afternoon, the DepEd Manila Division Office confirmed that the module that disparaged Robredo came from them. It released a statement, apologizing for “any harm that the incident may have caused to individuals or group.”

    It said the department is “committed to strictly abide by the quality control and conformance review process set by the Department when developing and producing learning modules."

    “Kung totoo na nakalusot ito sa Grade 11 na mga modules, gustong sabihin na napaka inefficient ng DepEd,” she told reporters after the forum held at the University of Pangasinan on Friday, April 8. “Ito lang ‘yung pinaka-ebidensya na napaka inefficient nila na pinapayagan nila na ‘yung mga module na ganito nakakalusot sa kanila.”

    When asked by a reporter whether there is a need to include “martial Law atrocities and the plundering of the nation during the Marcos regime” in the school curriculum, Robredo said there are many lessons that students need to be taught to prevent history from repeating itself.

    “Hindi lang during the Marcos era, pero marami pang mga leksyon na dapat hindi na maulit na pag sinisiguro natin na naituturo ito sa mga kabataan, ito ‘yung magpe-prevent for us to commit the same mistakes over and over again,” Robredo replied. “‘Yung lahat na korapsyon na nangyari, and how people reacted to corruption, dapat kabahagi ito, pati sa public officials nawa-warn sila na parating may sukdulan lahat ng pinaggagawa.” [END]
