PIA Press Release

Elem schools in 3 Capiz towns pilot peace education

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (4 February) -- Peace Education has already been integrated in the elementary curriculum curriculum of the Department of Education in Capiz Division.

The integration of peace education is being piloted in the elementary schools of Cuartero, Dumarao and Tapaz towns, Education Supervisor Martha Bermejo said.

Bermejo stressed that the peace education module has been designed for Grades IV to VI pupils.

She said that with the positive result of mainstreaming peace education in the basic and non-formal education curriculum, Bermejo said that plans are underway to expand the areas to President Roxas, Pilar and Maayon towns with funding support from the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) for the conduct of training for teacher on Peace Education Module.

Earlier, some 180 teachers from the districts of Cuartero, Dumarao, Tapaz West and Tapaz East in the Division of Capiz were trained on the Peace Education module, Bermejo said.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has issued Executive Order No. 570, otherwise known as Institutionalizing Peace Education in Basic Education and Teaching Education on September 2006.

Education Secretary Jesli Lapus pointed out that "it is very timely that we help our students develop attitudes and skills conducive to peace in the individual, interpersonal, national and global levels."

Lapus hopes that through the integration of the Peace Education module in the curriculum, the students will understand the processes that lead to harmony or conflict and be made aware of the various approaches to constructive conflict resolution. (PIA) [top]
