The Amnesty International (AI) is batting for the instruction of Human Rights in schools to instil respect for Human Rights in students.
“Human Rights must be taught," AI Director Dr. Aurora Purong said in an interview.
"Bakit ka pumapatay? Dahil di mo nakikita na tao yan na may dignidad na dapat di pinapatay," she asked.
Dr. Purong said that during the time of the late former President Corazon C. Aquino saw the importance of teaching Human Rights to students where she issued an Executive Order instructing schools to teach Human Rights.
However, there was less support especially when it comes to the information materials to be given to students and training of teachers.
Dr. Purong said their group, which is particular when it comes to Human Rights, may help the teachers' training and reproduction of instructional materials.
"What must be taught to the students is bawat tao ay may karapatang pangtao dahil siya ay tao kahit mahirap, mayaman, babae, lalaki, bata, at matanda at ang pag respeto sa isat isa," she said.
"Nananawagan kami na mag instruct si President Aquino. Isang Executive Order ito ng kanyang nanay hingil sa pagbibigay ng pag-aaral sa karapatang pantao sa lahat ng level ng paaralan sa publiko. Sana mainganyo at i-implement ito ni DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro.
