@ deped why dont you ever teach children regional history
(All historical figures cited are cebuano bc OP is cebuano)
Did u know literally no one in the new generation knows the story of general maxilom, tuburan, and the anti-american resistance in cebu? It’s not just antonio luna who fought against the americans.
What about governor mj cuenco? Archbishop reyes? V. Rama? Marcelo Fernan? What is the significance/impact of the osmeña family to the cebuano society?
No one in the new generation knows who these people are, only hearing them casually in the streets while trying to get a jeep because our streets are named after them.
Why didnt we ever think to teach regional history? The philippines started in cebu: limasawa, rajah humabon, rajah lapu-lapu, the spanish colonisation of the philippines. That is so far the only mention of cebu in philippine history. Why did you stop there?
There are fighters in other places too. Not just manila. Not just cebu. There might be rich history in Ilo-ilo, cagayan de oro, bohol, samar, masbate. Every island in the philippines has its story, so why dont we teach it?
It doesnt have to be graded: in fact, it shouldnt be graded. It should be shared knowledge. The children should know the history of where they came from. Not just the history of luzon. Tbh it comes off as imperialist. Where is the regional history?
