The IBON 2018 Planner: Why Support Community Schools?

December 22, 2017

Society is their book; and the people, their teachers

The Save Our Schools Network (SOS) unites right to education advocates supporting community-established Mindanao schools. The schools have been under attack by State forces resulting in various civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights violations against children, their teachers and families. During the first-ever national conference of the SOS Network, educators and students hailing from colleges and universities across the country as well as various sectors joined calls to stop the attacks and pledged their commitment to support the fluorishing of these schools. Pioneered in Mindanao by the Lumad, the initiative will soon be replicated in Luzon and the Visayas. IBON lists why community schools deserve everyone’s support in the introduction of the 2018 IBON Planner.


The IBON 2018 Planner is available at the IBON Bookshop at #114 Timog Ave and at selected National Book Store and Powerbooks outlets in Metro Manila.
