In Article II, Section 27 of the Constitution, the State provides that Government must “maintain honesty and integrity in public service and take positive effective measures against graft and corruption. Article XI, Section 1 directs “public officers must at all times be accountable to the people, serve them with utmost responsibility, integrity, loyalty and efficacy, act with patriotism and justice and lead modest lives.” Likewise in Article XIV, Section 3 (2), the Constitution provides that “all educational institutions shall inculcate… the rights and duties of citizenship, strengthen ethical and spiritual values; develop moral character and personal discipline and encourage critical and creative thinking. (3)…spiritual values shall be allowed to be taught to their youths or wards in public elementary and high schools within the regular class hours by instructors designated.”
