DepEd to hold mandatory toothbrush drill

The Department of Education (DepEd) is planning to add “peace building” in the K to 12 curriculum, according to Vice President and Education Sec. Sara Duterte.

Duterte said this will be the “National Culture of Peace”.

“Ginagawa pa namin siya ngayon. And once we are ready, iko-consult muna namin sa aming mga partners and stakeholders. And then once it’s ready, ipresenta namin sa lahat,” she said.

DepEd is also planning to hold a “mandatory toothbrush drill”, Duterte said.

“Ang mandatory toothbrush drill ay isa sa components na gusto namin na kaparte ng ating National Culture for Peace. Doon tayo magsisimula sa pagtuturo sa ating mga Kindergarten children kung ano iyong pagsunod sa drills and pagsunod sa utos by learning how to properly brush their teeth,” she explained.
