The DepEd Balik Kasaysayan Program was conceptualized and served as a catch-up program after the Department of Education (DepEd), specifically the Bureau of Learning Delivery, Teaching and Learning Division (BLD-TLD) received feedbacks from different K to 12 BEP Implementation Training for Grades 4, 5, and 6 regarding the ideal approach and methodology of teaching Araling Panlipunan 4, Philippines and and Araling Panlipunan 5 and 6, Philippine History.
The program was also made to address the issues on Araling Panlipunan Resource Book for Grade 3 which resulted in nonavailability of appropriate Grade 3 Learner’s Material and Resource Books that were supposed to be used as reference materials of learners and teachers for the teaching and learning process in Araling Panlipunan 3. This program also paves way to address the issues concerning nationalism and patriotism of Filipino learners and teachers.
With this program, the Department of Education (DepEd) will obtain its vision where “We dream of Filipinos who passionately love their country and whose values and competencies enable them to realize their full potential and contribute meaningfully to building the nation” and thus fulfilling and making education really liberating.
