PIA Press Release

'ABC' of peace education now in Capiz

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (16 July) -- The public elementary schools in Capiz are now adopting the Peace Education module.

Said module is integrated in the elementary curriculum of the Department of Education (DepEd), particularly for grades IV to VI, especially in the identified conflict areas in the province, Education Supervisor Martha Bermejo said.

The integration of the module is in response to Executive Order No. 570, otherwise known as Institutionalizing Peace Education in Basic Education and Teaching Education, signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on September 2006.

One of the objectives of the directive is to mainstream peace education in the basic and non-formal education curriculum.

According to Bermejo, 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.

The towns of Cuartero, Dumarao and Tapaz were the identified conflict areas in Capiz, Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Violeta Silva revealed, adding that said towns are among the tows where Country Programme for Children (CPC 6) of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) are being implemented.

Education Secretary Jesli Lapus said 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.

Earlier, the provincial government of Capiz in partnership with UNICEF had distributed school supplies and materials to pupils in the public elementary schools in the conflict areas here. (PIA) [top]
