The Department of Education (DepEd) is proposing teaching Grade 10 students about the West Philippine Sea and a ruling that affirmed the Philippines' territorial claims covered by the country's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the West Philippine Sea against China.


MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) plans to educate Grade 10 pupils about the West Philippine Sea dispute, emphasizing the Philippines’ successful territorial claims within its exclusive economic zone (EEZ) against China.

“Territorial quandaries and boundary clashes” will be weaved into Grade 10 Araling Panlipunan lessons in the draft of the enriched K-12 curriculum.


The lesson would include “Mga Isla ng West Philippine Sea.”


Meanwhile, the “Hague Arbitral Ruling” will be included in another lesson on responses to economic challenges.

The draft documents can be accessed by clicking this link and are open for review until May 3, DepEd said.
