November 11, 2020 – The Department of Education wishes to inform the public about the circulation of a certain self-learning module that violated social content standards by giving false illustration on the role of our military in maintaining peace and order in the community.

Based on the investigation, the said module is locally-developed and did not go through the quality assurance process of the DepEd Cordillera Administrative Region.

As of this date, immediate retrieval of the module has been ordered. DepEd reiterates that no module shall be distributed to the learners unless quality assured by the Division or Regional Offices.

The Department shall continue further investigation on the matter, exhaust legal remedies and enforce appropriate sanctions on those who prepared and distributed such modules to ensure that school learning materials foster quality education and the best of interest of children.
