DepEd: Education modules on Robredo's life to bring social transformation

August 28, 2012 8:30am

The new education modules on the life of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo will help bring about social transformation in the country, the Department of Education (DepEd) said on Tuesday.
 
Students will learn about Robredo's good governance and simplicity through the modules on social studies and values education, radio dzBB's Glen Juego reported.

In the report, Education Secretary Armin Luistro said Robredo's leadership will be taken up in the social studies module while his life as a simple person and family man will be taken up in the values education module.
 
Robredo died in a plane crash off Masbate on August 18. The crash also killed the plane's pilot and co-pilot. Only Robredo's aide survived the incident.

Robredo's death triggered an outpouring of sympathy from Filipinos who praised him for his low-key leadership that propelled Naga City from a third- to a first-class city.
 
Ordinary Filipinos and Robredo's colleagues in the Cabinet also lauded him for his "tsinelas leadership" that made him accessible to everyone.
 
A state funeral was scheduled on Tuesday in Naga City, with President Benigno Aquino III expected to deliver the eulogy. - VVP, GMA News
