Jose Rizal's huge role in attaining the nation's freedom led to the establishment of Republic Act 1425. The RepublicAct 1425, commonly known as the Rizal Act, was established 12
of June 1956 by Senator Claro M. Recto. Itrequires the curricula of private and public schools, colleges and universities courses to include the life, works andwritings of Jose Rizal, particularly his novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. According to the OfficialGazette, the law was made effective on August 16, 1956.SEC.1Courses on the life, works and writings of Jose Rizal, particularly his novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo,shall be included in the curricula of all schools, colleges and universities, public or private; Provided, That in thecollegiate courses, the original or unexpurgated editions of the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo or their English translations shall be used as basic texts.Sec. 2It shall be obligatory on all schools, colleges and universities to keep in their libraries an adequate number of copiesof the original and expurgated editions of the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, as well as Rizal's other worksand biography.Sec. 3The board of National education shall cause the translation fo the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, as well asother writings of Jose Rizal into English, Tagalog and the principal Philippine dialects; cause them to be printed incheap, popular editions; and cause them to be distributed, free of charge, to persons desiring to read them, throughthe Purok organizations and the Barrio Councils throughout the country.
RA 1425 Explanation based on Rizal Website
RA No. 1425 prescribes the teaching of the life, works and writings of Jose Rizal for all school, colleges anduniversities.Students and teachers, in the past years, have relied on books and periodicals from the library to do their studies on Rizal. The advent of Information Technology, however, facilitated the acquisition and sharing of ideas among peoples of varied persuasions throughout the globe. Survey results show that more and more students are using theInternet to do research work. This Jose Rizal website is, therefore, designed, and created to assist students in theappreciation of the role of Rizal in the development of the Filipino nation. The web contains very comprehensivematerials on and by Rizal in both the English and Filipinolanguages. Further more, it is offered for free to everyone.The endorsement of the web by the Commission on Higher Education helped increase the number of visitors. Thisweb continues to acquire and update information about Rizal in order to be of better service to the users.
What is RA 1425?
Just in the year 1956, to be exact, on June 12 (the anniversary of the declaration of independence) the parliament inManila passes a law (
Number 1425) which decreed the entire works of Rizal as teaching material inall private and publicschoolsand universities. Since the correspondence with Blumentritt represents the biggest portion of Rizal's exchange of letters it can be said with full justification that Blumentritt is known to practicallyevery schoolchild in the Philippines.Kurt, a grandson of Blumentritt, was presented an honorary plaque posthumously on December 30, 1978, on thedeath anniversary of Rizal, for his grandfather's exceptional interest in the history and culture of the Philippine people . . for his voluntary alliance, his cooperation and his identification with the Philippine reformist politicians . .. for the publication of many valuable works about the Philippines . . and for the inspiration and active support,which he lent the propaganda actions . above all, to his best friend, Dr. Jose Rizal . . ."A year later, Blumentritt was admitted posthumously to the order of the Knights of Rizal in the rank of "KnightCommander". Here too, in the substantiation for his admission, Blumentritt was cited as inspirer-advisor and friendof Rizal for life and appreciation was paid him for introducing Rizal to the prominent men of letters and science inEurope and for being a constant source of courage to his friend and the inspiration for Rizal's vision of anindependent Philippine nation.In one of the numerous future visions which were exchanged between Rizal and Blumentritt, Rizal writes in the possibly most touching letter of this long correspondence: "Yes, I believe the time is already near when I may returnto thePhilippines. When I am already there, then you must come with your whole family and live with me; I am provided with a big library, I shall have a little house built on a hill for myself; then I shall devote myself to thesciences, read history and write, establish a school and if you can bear the climate, then you shall be the director. Iam sure all the young ones, the best in the country shall come to us: Blumentritt-Rizal will stay in the memory of theFilipino people like Goethe and Schiller, like Horatius and Virgil, like the Humboldts ..."The inexorability of history destroyed the dream of Rizal but his vision for the Filipino people came true - thememory of the two friends is alive. May these lines contribute to making a breach in the wall of ignorance andforgetfulness so that on his side of the globe, Ferdinand Blumentritt will finally be honored.source:http://www.univie.ac.at/Voelkerkunde/apsis/aufi/rizal/nat-mour.htm
