MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Isko Moreno on Tuesday met with officials of the Department of Education and Division of City Schools to discuss the conduct of seminars about Good Manners and Right Conduct (GMRC) and Values Education program.
The meeting was held following the passage of Republic Act 11476, which was signed by President Duterte to bring back GMRC and Values Education as a separate subject from Grades 1 to 12.
Moreno said he wants to revive GMRC to help students “learn respect and compassion for one another.”
He also vowed to build more laboratories to strengthen Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics programs in senior high schools.
