Article VII, Sections 37 and 38 of this Republic Act requires that all students enrolled in Higher Education Institutions undergo military training for the purpose of producing reservists. Republic Actalso known as the "National Service Training Program NSTP Act of ," is "a program aimed at enhancing civic consciousness and defense preparedness in the youth by developing the ethics of service and patriotism while undergoing training in any of its three 3 program components.

These two bills seek to reinstate the mandatory ROTC for all college students. The senate bill pushes for all college students to mandatorily take ROTC, while its counterpart in the lower house aims to make ROTC mandatory for males and voluntary for females.
In effect, they will repeal the provisions of Republic Act In the explanatory note of Senate BillAlfredo Lim cites that there is a need to reinstate the mandatory ROTC to "instill discipline among the youth and make them more committed to do acts and deeds that serve the nation rather than indulge in fraternities, drugs and other tendencies not conducive to their development.
Eduardo Gullas states that by requiring college students to take ROTC, we are preparing "a generation of young people who are ready to defend the country in any eventuality" House of Representatives website, June 9, We believe that repealing the National Service Training Program and making ROTC mandatory curtail the freedom of students in choosing how they best serve the country.
ROTC is not the only program or venue where students learn discipline. In fact, it is assumed that the youth are already disciplined and mature individuals when they enter the tertiary level. Mandatory ROTC may not prove to be effective in assisting the Armed Forces of the Philippines in maintaining peace and order in the country, especially in times of war.
The rationale behind this is that not all members of the reserves may be prepared because of the involuntary service and the lack of passion to learn the military activities.
In addition, these members have their own comparative advantages and wasting their skills in other activities may not prove to be helpful. We are against the possibility that students may be used for brute force or hostile activities in the future.
We, as Lasallians, recommend the following proposals: We ask for the administration of Higher Education Institutions, parents and students to release a stand regarding the pending bills on mandatory ROTC in the tertiary level to the concerned government agencies.
We call on Congress not to repeal Republic Act No. We call on the concerned government agencies to develop an ROTC program or course that will encourage and entice the youth to join the Armed Forces of the Philippines so that the number of ROTC enrollees and the number of armed forces may increase.
The curriculum may include various leadership development activities that will equip the students for any leadership roles, voluntary adventure activities that will aid in the students' training and physical fitness and other skills and classroom sessions that will develop patriotism, besides the education on military training, tactics and operations in the classroom and the field.
We also call on the concerned government agencies to develop incentive systems such as scholarships and lower expenses on the needed materials when enrolled in the ROTC program. We encourage all Higher Education Institutions to conduct an objective orientation before the start of the school year that will brief the incoming freshmen about the benefits of joining the ROTC program and CWTS program.1.
