From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On PRRD’s remarks on Lumad schools

The President notes that certain lumad/ indigenous schools are being used to foment rebellion against the government.

PRRD warns them in the strongest terms to discontinue these actions; persistence will warrant appropriate government action.

PRRD highlights the need to protect our youth and doing so entails ensuring they get the correct education that reinforces the right values that instill love of country and respect for our laws among others, and not rebellion.
