1987 Constitution inspires alternative classes
Thirty years ago, following the 1986 revolution that overthrew the Marcos regime, a new constitution was framed. In view of various issues confronting the Philippines today, the Loyola Schools will hold TALAB: Talakayang Alay sa Bayan on February 21, 2017. A one-day event, TALAB seeks to deepen the students’ understanding of contemporary events in the context of the 1987 Constitution. It will be conducted similar to the now defunct Alternative Class Program — with lectures, creative presentations, workshops, field trips, and guided tours. Some of the scheduled TALAB activities include a social justice forum with the Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines, Maria Leonor Gerona Robredo, journalism and social media talk with GMA 7 journalist Howie Severino, and field trip to Intramuros. Undergraduates will attend the class session instead of their regular classes.
