Sustainable dev't to be incorporated in public school curriculum

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (23 July) -- The urgency to incorporate sustainable development and environment education in the Philippine public school curriculum is cited by the Department of Education (DepEd) to help increase the level of awareness of the students on environmental concerns.

"Our children should learn early on that nature is finite and there's a lot to do in terms of reviving the environment," said Education Secretary Jesli Lapus as he emphasized that "we education stakeholders have to ensure that sustainable development should well be incorporated in the lessons and values we teach our children".

During the Consultative Workshop on Education For All (EFA) Towards Sustainable Development, the Education Secretary, who is also the national EFA committee chair said that DepEd has directed its efforts towards the provision of basic learning tools which include care of environment for sustainable development.

The recently conducted workshop sought to provide a platform for creating awareness of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as a development strategy. It also featured on the discussion on ESD performance indicators.

The DepEd press report disclosed that teacher training in the areas of environment that draws on local inputs, context, and values will be strategic to meeting DepEd's ESD goals. (PIA) [top]
