The Department of Education (DepEd) of the Philippines plans to mainstream basic law subjects into the regular curriculum of elementary and high schools, to mold the students into responsible and law-abiding citizens.

The Public Education on the Rule of Law Advancement and Support (PERLAS) modules had been turned over to DepEd for integration into the basic education curriculum, after a series of teacher trainings and field testings conducted nationwide since last year.

PERLAS, now on its second phase, is aimed at educating and informing the public, especially students, about the workings of the justice system.

It remained a work in progress among the DepEd, Supreme Court, Libertás (Lawyers’ League for Liberty), United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and funding institutions such as USAID, World Bank and Asian Development Bank, Luistro said.

Once finalized, it would be fully integrated into the curricula of elementary and secondary schools, using teaching and learning methods that are appropriate and relevant to each student’s competencies.

This is quality education that goes beyond the lessons in Mathematics, Science, English and other subjects. It not only teach minds, but also touches hearts and molds the students into responsible and law-abiding citizens.
