House of Rep. OK's revival of good manners & rigth Conduct (GMRC) subject

Filipino children will be in for a treat, an old subject our mom’s used to be studying will be coming back on its own.
The House of Representatives just approved on third and final reading, the measure seeking to revive the Good Manners and Right Conduct (GMRC) subject in the grade school curriculum of the country.
The House of Representative in its plenary voted unanimously to pass House Bill 5829, which reintroduces GMRC as a separate subject from Kindergarten to Grade 3.

The proposed bill measure provides for the inclusion of the GMRC subject in the Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao curriculum of the Department of Education (DepEd)’s K-12 program.
The bill said GMRC, defined as “basic social values and etiquette,” is necessary “to develop the character of the youth by making them recognize their intrinsic human value, enabling them to cultivate their ability to make excellent choices for themselves in relation to the greater community, thereby creating a culture of respect and love for oneself, for others and the country.”
Before Senator Miguel Zubiri sought the revivial of the Good Manners and Right Conduct since the Values Education which are presently included in the elementary and secondary schooling is not enough as can be seen from the children who are involved in breaking laws.

“I observe that this seeming downgrading of Values Education in the curriculum has made it harder to raise upright citizens. So, we see rising criminality in the streets and inside our homes committed by youngsters and adults who have not undergone GMRC as we had in the old days,” Zubiri stated.
“We witness this low level of discipline in disrespectful behavior of children and teens who are most vulnerable to the use of drugs and oftentimes resort to gangsterism,” he further mentioned.
