Some students even testified that they had watched porn inside the school.

The incident concerned Ajuy Mayor Jett Rojas.

Rojas said he already talked to the administration of Pili National High School, which firmly believed that watching the porn video was only part of studying sex ed.

The Department of Education emphasized the importance of integrating sexuality education lessons in public elementary and high schools to prevent the increasing rate of teenage pregnancy, population growth, and sexual diseases in the country.

“(For) example, in science. We know that the parts of the body are a science topic. But here, we will integrate the concept of privacy, harassment, and good relationship. So, values education comes in,” Education Undersecretary Annalyn Sevilla said.

The agency said that if the government would not be pro-active in resolving teenage pregnancy in the country, “the Philippines might [have] an impending population crisis.”
