Just last week, our firstborn Abdul Rashid got bullied in school. I had a talk with the principal and I was told that all measures are being done to make sure it won’t happen again.
Ironically, it was also the same day when President Aquino signed the Anti-Bullying Act of 2013. Once I got the full text of the law, I immediately tried dissecting it into its salient parts and I came up with a short powerpoint presentation on these important provisions. I’m posting all the slides here. I hope this presentation is helpful to other parents and I dearly hope that elementary schools and high schools all over the country follow it strictly.
The Department of Education has been tasked to come up with the Implementing Rules and Regulations of RA No. 10627. I am looking forward to reading the rules and regulations once they’re out.
