- Tila tuloy na nga ang pagtanggal ng wikang Filipino, Panitikan at Konstitusyon bilang core subjects sa kolehiyo
- Maraming mga guro nga ang mawawalan ng trabaho dahil dito
- Nagreact naman ang mga netizens sa issue na ito
Inanunsyo ng Korte Suprema na inalis na nila ang temporary restraining order (TRO) sa Memorandum Order No. 20 ng Commission on Higher Education (CHED) kung saan idinedeklarang hindi na required o kabilang sa core subjects sa kolehiyo ang wikang Filipino, Panitikan at Konstitusyon.
Nalaman ng KAMI sa Rappler na naging unanimous ang pasya ng korte rito. Subalit, tinututulan naman ng mga Filipino advocates ang nagging pasya ng korte. Lumalabag daw ito sa Section 6, Article XIV ng Philippine Constitution.
Section 6. The national language of the Philippines is Filipino. As it evolves, it shall be further developed and enriched on the basis of existing Philippine and other languages.
Subject to provisions of law and as the Congress may deem appropriate, the Government shall take steps to initiate and sustain the use of Filipino as a medium of official communication and as language of instruction in the educational system.
“The provision further provides that this authority shall not be construed as limiting the academic freedom of universities and colleges. Therefore, HEis are given the freedom to require additional Filipino or Panitikan courses to these minimum requirements if they wish to,” giit ng Korte Suprema.
Naging iba-iba rin ang reaksyon ng mga netizens sa naging desisyon ng korte na ito. Narito ang ilang komento nila sa Facebook page ng Rappler:
“I agree with this. College education should focus on professional development. It is a fact that Filipino subject in college is only most necessary if you want to be a teacher for filipino subject.”
“The first two are not relevant but Constitution? I think it is a must for every Filipino to know his/her Constitution specially in these times when rules and laws, rights and legalities are in jeopardy of being abused, conflicted and distorted.”
“Philippine Constitution SHOULD BE a required subject at school. And even better to teach the subject to Grade 10 or Grade 6. Lawmakers are pursuing to lower the age of criminal liability and the youth should learn how their human rights are protected by the Philippine Constitution.”
“The constitution is not a required subject anymore? No effing wonder we have lots of idiots exercising their right to vote without any idea about their civic responsibilities! National stupidity is endemic because our education vanguards thought it best not to let people learn about their civics duties and rights!!!”
“Im sorry advocates, but 6 years of it in elementary, and 4 years of Filipino in High School is good for me na, i dont need it sa college.”
“If in university or college already, i think only the relevant subjects pertaining to the course should be taught. Tama lang yan. Para ang number of years in college will be shorter. Those 3 subjects should be thoroughly taught and surely be included in high school level.”
“yong Filipino ok lang dahil nakukuha sa high school, inuulit lang pero constitution dapat di tinanggal”
Base nga sa report ng GMA News ay maraming mga guro nga ang mawawalan ng trabaho sa bagong kalakaran na ito.
