THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) is planning to include voter’s education in the curriculum of high school and college students to give them more idea about their right of suffrage.

Comelec Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal said they initially talked about the plan with Education Secretary Amin Luistro when they met during the inauguration of President Bengino “Noynoy” Aquino III last Wednesday.

He said they will further discuss the matter as they are planning to set a meeting with the officials of the Department of Education (DepEd).

Larrazabal added that they want to have the modules included in the curriculum of 4th year high school students and 1st year college students.

The voter’s education however will be taught for only one day and they will provide materials to school libraries so that students will have access on them anytime.

The Comelec will take the lead but the implementation of the project will be done by the DepEd and the Commission on Higher Education.

This endeavor, he added, would strengthen the relationship between the three agencies. (FP/Sunnex)
