DepEd denies revision of teaching Martial Law to Bagong Lipunan
The Department of Education denied report that it plans to change the teaching of martial law as “Bagong Lipunan”.
A social media user recently alleged that their friend, whom they identified as a professor from the University of the Philippines, “was invited by the DepEd to discuss changes that will happen in the new curriculum.”
“Sa panahon ng Batas Militar, gusto nilang gawing ‘Panitikan ng Aktibismo at Bagong Lipunan’. Bali ire-replace nila yung term na ‘Batas Militar’ to ‘Bagong Lipunan’ all over the curriculum kasi ayaw nilang may kahit anong ‘offensive’ kay BBM sa curriculum,” the post read.
DepEd Spokesperson Michael Poa said, the issue was “not true.”
