Department of Education: It’s War Against Jejemons
So the DepEd declares the “Jejemon subculture” as bad for the kids’ education.
The Sun Star reports:
THE Department of Education (DepEd) has declared an “all-out-war” against the emerging “Jejemon” subculture, saying that it will degrade the standards of the country’s education system.
“Not only that Jejemon language is not pleasing to the eyes, it has also destroyed years of achievements of the DepEd in pushing for better education quality,” said Education Secretary Mona Valisno.
According to the DepEd, they will emphasize proper spelling and pronunciation as steps against Jejenese and the Jejebet. But will they do anything significant online as well?
A reason why this so-called Jejemon subculture has flourished is because many Filipinos use it online. Should schools actually look for their students’ respective social networking profiles, and use incentives/punishments to break their habit of jejemonism?
