Mayor Pamintuan to schools: Teach children about Balangiga
Angeles City Mayor Ed Pamintuan on Monday (July 31) has ordered schools to teach the importance of the Balanginga Bells in history subjects.
The Pampanga politiko’s directive comes after President Rodrigo Duterte called on the United States to return the historic bells during his second State of the Nation Address (SONA).
Pamintuan said schools should discuss “the importance of the Balangiga Bells and its significance to the country struggle for national independence and patrimony.”
“This is in support of the call of President Duterte and for us to raise the awareness of our youth and students to the historical value of the Balangiga Bells,” Pamintuan said.
“The administrators of private schools are enjoined to include the story of Balangiga and its bells in all its history subjects,” he added.
