SEN. GATCHALIAN: DEPED CAN PLAN ROTC PILOT PROGRAM FOR S.Y. 2019-2020
Since the mandatory Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) could not be implemented because the proposed measure reviving the program is still in process; Senator Sherwin Gatchalian said that the Department of Education (DepEd) could plan the pilot program for the school year 2019-2020 while waiting for the law as well as the budget.
The proposed program will be implemented in the basic education level namely grades 11 and 12.
