Sta. Maria noted that allowing its definition will only trigger indoctrination brought about by the syllabus and outline they’ll provide. The abogado said that the law grants absolute right for schools to hire who they want to teach, what they will teach, and how it will be taught.
He calls for a stop over this attempt to straightjacket education.
