The information campaign sought to include elementary pupils, secondary, college, and vocational students in a discussion on autonomy. This is to increase the level of awareness of the people on matters relating to Cordillera’s renewed bid for an autonomous region.
Discussions on autonomy would be incorporated in the Araling Panlipunan subjects of Grades IV, V, and VI.
“There are other important matters which must be taught than autonomy,” Nazarro said.
The board member said he would file a resolution urging that Benguet be exempted from the discussion on autonomy in the elementary level.
“Let the other provinces accept it if they want,” he added.
Education officials were invited to attend the Provincial Board’s regular sessions and clarify the agreement on the incorporation of autonomy in classroom discussion.
The information dissemination on autonomy was allotted a budget of P33 million.
