College Curriculum May No Longer Include Filipino & Philippine Literature Subjects
The Filipino and Philippine Literature subjects may be removed from the college curriculum following the resolution from the Supreme Court.
The curriculum in the tertiary level of education contains a lot of major and minor subjects. The set of subjects differ depending on the course but there are those that are usually part of every curriculum.
Among the subjects that are usually part of those that college students should take regardless of their course are Filipino and Philippine Literature.
However, it seems that these subjects will no longer be included in the curriculum in the next school years following the final resolution from the Supreme Court.
Based on a recent report on Bombo Radyo Iloilo, the two(2) aforementioned subjects which talk about the language and the literature of the Philippines may no longer be included in the college curriculum.
The Supreme Court favored the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) memorandum order No. 20 seeking to lower the units in college.
The said order mandates the removal of Filipino and Philippine Literature and lowering the general education (GE) to 36 units. The SC expressed that the petitioners have not issued new pleadings contrary to the order.
Meanwhile, based on the report, the Court assured that decision on the 5-page resolution released won’t affect the academic freedom of the universities and colleges in lowering the number of subjects.
As of this writing, there are still no further information regarding the matter.
We’ll keep you posted for updates.
