Vice-Governor’s Souvenir Message: Regional Schools Press Conference 2015
Republic Act 7079 or the Campus Journalism Act was enacted in 1991 to uphold and protect the freedom of the press even at the campus level.
Our gratitude to the national government thru the Department of Education for giving prime importance in molding the young minds of our campus journalists to be more skillful and responsible – by training them to observe quality and responsible journalism.
The Provincial Government of Misamis Occidental agrees with the intent of the law that the growth of campus journalism is a means of strengthening ethical values, encouraging critical and creative thinking, and developing moral character and personal discipline of the Filipino young journalists. In addressing societal issues confronting us today – journalism can be a very effective means to initiate change.
Congratulations Dep Ed for another RSPC 2015 Milestone!
