The City Council, in its recent regular session, has passed a resolution expressing support to the inclusion of entrepreneurship module in the high school curriculum.

The resolution is in support to the Senate Bill 147 filed by Senator Cynthia Villar that seeks to require the inclusion of entrepreneurship as a separate subject in high school.

In an interview, Councilor Miguel Alavar, III, author of the resolution, believes the entrepreneurship program could help solve problems on unemployment and poverty.

Alavar said the students, especially those who are not interested in pursuing college, will not end up jobless as they will have an option and knowledge to venture into business.

Alavar said the inclusion of the entrepreneurship subject is timely with the implementation of the K to 12 Program by the Department of Education (DepEd).

He noted that the senior high school or the Grades 11 and 12 provides the students the privilege of selecting their field of specialization such as pre-college education, vocational, arts and sports education or further study in college.

The Alavar-sponsored resolution was unanimously approved by the City Council in its regular session Tuesday. — RGAAG
