DepEd integrates 'consumerism' in curriculum

Pasig City (2 October) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) will integrate consumer education in the high school curriculum of all public and private schools to educate the young on their rights as well as responsibilities as consumers.

The act to strengthen consumer education is being implemented in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the National Consumers Affairs Council (NCAC). It complies with Art 154 Chapter II of the Consumer Welfare Act of the Philippines.

According to Education Secretary Jesli Lapus, DepEd will integrate "consumerism" in social studies, values education, mathematics, science, MAPEH, technical and livelihood education, English and Filipino subjects.

"It is necessary that we instill in the minds of our students the laws covering service warranties, complaints, counterfeiting, and even intellectual property so they will know their responsibilities and privileges as consumers," Lapus said.

In line with this, the department, the DTI and NCAC, conducted a Consumer Education Teachers' Exemplar Writeshop to 70 master teachers, chiefs of secondary divisions and regional education supervisors from regions 1,8,10,11 and the National Capital Region.

The writeshop participants likewise integrated savings consciousness in teachers' guides and product standards and concepts in teachers' lesson plans for the different subject areas in compliance with the DepEd-DTI tie up.

A copy of the Consumer Education Teachers' Exemplar drafted during the writeshop was presented to Sec Jesli Lapus and DTI Secretary Peter Favila on the opening of the Consumer Welfare Month on October 1. It was followed by the signing of a memorandum of agreement between DepEd and DTI for the integration of the consumer education to the curriculum. (DepEd) [top]
