Take Home Exam.

Facts:
A compulsory law was passed by the government requiring every Filipino citizen to
attend school until he/she finishes high school. On the other hand, the religion of
Riveroism believes that compulsory education should be limited only until grade six.
The religion of Riveroism is a conservative religion that believes that the bible only
requires the fundamental knowledge and that every faithful of their religion should
live by the land as farmers so as to honor God.
Thus, four Riveroism families sued the Department of Education over its
requirement that children be enrolled in school until the age of sixteen. The parents
refused to comply by removing their children from school after they completed the
grade six. The families claimed that their rights to freely exercising their religion
were not being respected.
Question: Whether the countrys interest in educating citizens outweighs the
religious freedom of parents to raise their children according to the dictates of their
faith or vice versa.

you can do anything, present it in any format that you want, do a video, skit,
interview, music video, etc, be creative
project (Philo and Socio Classes)
name of the project: You can change the world in my own little ways
rationale: karl marx said that there are so many isms in the world but the real
challenge is how to change the world. As such, beyond the learning that you get
inside the class rooms, the greater challenge is for you to become an influence of
good change in your own little spheres of influence. More so that as skolars ng
bayan, you are indebted to the society to give back. This is one of your duties as
government scholars and as agents of change.
what are you going to do: you can do anything that you want, as long as you are
going to do social good. you have all the leeway that you want. be as creative as
you like.
sample activities: volunter in your church, be a tutor, go to home for the aged or
boys town, do an environmental clean-up, feeding program, ala day-off, clean the
streets in your barangay, launch a campaign, help out a friend or relative or even
stranger in need, become a back up singer for a harana....you can see works of my
previous classes posted in this blog.
things to submit: i need documentation, video or document of the project. explain
also why that is your chosen project.
things to remember: be on the look-out for your own safety. the project need not be
expensive. it could be very simple yet meaningful. as i have said it could be any
project as long as you do good.
