Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said he supports moves to revive the mandatory Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) in schools as the program can play a significant role in strengthening the country’s national security and crisis management efforts.
Go, however, said there must be a thorough study of the plan to reintroduce the ROTC since it may affect the education of the students participating in the program.
“Suportado ko po ang ROTC dahil mas matuturuan natin ang ating mga kabataan ng spirit of bayanihan, love of country, discipline, and patriotism. Makakatulong din ito para mailayo ang mga kabataan sa illegal drugs and criminality (I support ROTC because we can better teach our youth the spirit of heroism, love of country, discipline, and patriotism. It will also help to keep the youth away from illegal drugs and criminality),” Go sai
