Dad wants traffic rules in curriculum
By Rose Palacio
Davao City (13 January) -- The education department should integrate traffic rules and regulations in the school curriculum at the elementary and high school levels in Davao City.
“Children should be aware of the importance of traffic rules and regulations because we have observed that simply passing the right pedestrian lanes; mukhang hindi pa tama ang ginagawa (they’re not doing it right),” said City Councilor Pilar Braga, Council’s chairperson on trade and industry.
Social responsibility and obedience should be taught to children most especially when they are still in elementary and secondary schools, she said.
In the early stages, young minds and their attitudes are still flexible and impressionable, she said.
The foundation of education and learning starts with the early years of the individual.
All desirable teachings learned by the child whether at home or in school contribute to his or her development. Start teaching the children while they are still young and in their formative years, she said. (PIA-Rpalacio) [top]
