U.P. Baguio To Incorporate Speech Therapy In All Its Undergraduate Courses

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – The University of the Philippines, Baguio Campus, is the first educational institution to respond to the new city ordinance making it illegal to utter profanities in public, particularly in schools and in businesses catering to young people.

While many individuals and groups have criticized the ordinance as an affront to Free Speech, U.P. Baguio has chosen to be more proactive.

Beginning in the next semester, the school will incorporate Speech Therapy in all its undergraduate courses.  The three-unit course is mandatory for all students regardless of their major.

A member of the U.P Baguio administration, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak on behalf of the school, told The Adobo Chronicles that instead of punishing cussers, the school chose to help them reform their speech, a.k.a. foul language.

”Hopefully, by the end of the semester, our students will have totally eliminated profanities  from their everyday speech,” he said.
