Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso will be investing in the revival of the Good Moral and Right Conduct (GMRC) program in Manila schools, in an effort to “bring back respect and compassion for each other.”
“Kapag nabalik yung respect to point of views, importante iyon. While we argue, while we disagree, but there is certain level of respect among each other, sa tingin ko tatamaan lahat yun, na kapag alam niyang may mali, alam niyang hindi niya dapat gawin iyon," the mayor said.
Domagoso met with the officials of the Department of Education (DepEd) and Manila Division of City Schools. According to him, they will be implementing information dissemination efforts like seminars for GMRC programs for students and teachers.
Moreover, the city will be building more Math and Science buildings to help strengthen the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program in senior high school.
“We’ll be [glad] to support. Anything na pwede naming magawa in our own little way, with the help od Superintendent and the school board, to redirect, go back towards a journey of developing the next generation, the next Batang Maynila while we address the existing one and bring it back right to the community,” he said.
Earlier this year, President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Republic Act 11476 or the GMRC and Values Education Act. Under the law, GMRC will be taught as a separate subject from Grades 1 to 6, while Values Education will be taught from Grades 7 to 12.
