DepEd intensifies awareness on rule of law among students

Pasig City (3 April) -- In line with the Department of Education's (DepEd) thrust to instill among our students the values of respecting the rule of law, the DepEd shall be conducting the Public Education on the Rule of Law Advancement and Support (PERLAS) project.

"As we look at ways to solve the many social woes that plague our country, we recognize the important role of education in transforming our students to become true assets instead of liabilities in our quest for nation building," said DepEd Secretary Jesli Lapus. "This includes teaching them the values such as respect for the rule of law."

The PERLAS project aims to educate students in public elementary and high schools about the judiciary and the rule of law by means of teaching and learning methods that are appropriate and relevant to their respective learning competencies with educational materials such as the Exemplars for Teachers and Students' Manual on the Rule of Law.

The first phase of the project involves the creation of Teaching Exemplars for Classroom Use for Elementary and High School Students and a Student's Handbook for School in the Rule of Law, which has been completed last year.

Currently entering into its second phase, the program will also include the training of teachers and the finalization of teaching exemplars and manual, which includes field-testing and validation before their integrated into the public school curriculum.

The project was made possible with the support of the United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF), The Asia Foundation, Lawyers' League for Liberty (LIBERTAS), and the Office of the Supreme Court. (DepEd) [top]
