September 25, 2020 –We would like to clarify that a certain viral photo of a module page with provocative terms was not created by the Department of Education (DepEd). Based on our investigation, a private Catholic school in Zambales produced the module.
Learning resources in public schools have undergone quality assurance through our education specialists and our modules have yet to be utilized formally since public schools will only open on October 5, 2020.
DepEd shall continue to investigate the matter and exhaust legal remedies to ensure that school learning materials, in public and private schools, foster quality education and the best interest of children.
With the Republic Act 11476 or the GMRC and Values Education Act enacted, we will continuously promote good manners and right conduct among basic education institutions to provide a good example to our learners.
