Department of Education & Congress

Pupils are being taught outright in a foreign tongue (English). Students in secondary level are forbidden - being fined if they speak in their mother tongue (Iluko in Northern Luzon, Philippines) and even in Filipino - our national language! in Metro-Manila colleges & universities.) Competencies in mother tongue should be encouraged - must be legislated.

I, the undrsigned, call on the UN to require educational institutions to use their mother tongue in primary education and stop the practice of secondary institution authorities of imposing fines to students conversing in their mother tongue - Prescillano N. Bermudez
