Bill instituting services for learners with disabilities: Sen. Win Gatchalian sponsors Senate Bill No. 1907, which seeks to institute services and programs for learners with disabilities in support of inclusive education during the hybrid plenary session, Monday November 23, 2020. “The end goal of this is for learners with disabilities to enjoy full participation in the general education system, thus preparing them for adult living and community life as full-pledged members of Philippine society,” Gatchalian said. The chairman of the Committee on Basic Education, Arts and Culture, said the bill expressly prohibits the denial of admission or inclusion of any learner with disability in any public or private basic education school.
