Bataan Cong Garcia thanks Duterte for signing “Bataan HS for the Arts” law
Bataan 2nd District Representative Jose Enrique “Joet” Garcia on Friday thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for signing into law the legislation creating the Bataan High School for the Arts.
“The Bataan High School for the Arts (BHSA) will soon rise in Bagac! Thank you President Duterte for signing Republic Act No. 11190!” Garcia said on his Facebook account.
A copy of the law showed it was approved by Duterte on Jan. 10, 2019.
Garcia said the BHSA “will only be the second specialized public high school in the Philippines offering arts-focused education after the Makiling-based Philippine High School for the Arts (PHSA) established in 1978 by virtue of Presidential Decree 1287.”
According to the law, the school shall be administered and supervised by the Department of Education, in coordination with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
It is mandated to implement a general secondary curriculum “with special focus on the arts that shall aid in recognizing early the talent and exceptional giftedness of young children, thereby ensuring the nurturance of artists of excellence and the preservation and promotion of Filipino heritage.”
