Rizal`s law, also known as RA 1425, prescribes the study of Rizal`s life and work, as discussed in section 1. This law of the Republic calls for an increased sense of nationalism on the part of Filipinos at a time when Filipino identity is waning. According to the judicial system, a law of the republic is a law that has already been adopted and implemented. In contrast, a bill is just a bill, in other words, it may or may not be passed by Congress. The Rizal Act, officially referred to as Republic Act No. 1425, is a Philippine law that requires all educational institutions in the Philippines to offer courses on José Rizal. In any case, the Rizal Law has been severely restricted by the Catholic Church in the Philippines, much appreciated for the relevant anticlerical themes in Rizal Noli`s books Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Another important point of RA 1425 is: „While all educational institutions are under the supervision and regulation of the state, and all schools are instructed to develop moral character, personal discipline, civic awareness and to teach the duties of citizenship.” It is very important to use our educational institutions to instill these values in children who are in their best years of growth and learning. During their own years of study, especially at the college level, individuals formulate their priorities and career paths in life, and it is important that institutions make it clear to students that the country should be part of their priorities and that serving one`s own country is an innate and innate duty for all. Moreover, anchoring a deep and authentic moral character and a strong sense of self-discipline among young people would produce competent, sincere and disinterested Filipinos of the future who would transform the Philippines from an impoverished country into a globally competitive nation. Rizal, Cuenco said, „attacked the dogmas, beliefs, and practices of the Church. To emphasize this, they also use words or concepts that can easily refer to the ordinary Filipino man.

Such passion is crucial, as the public is likely marked by a declining nationalism. In this regard, the author tries to show the public the identity they have slowly lost and show them how to undo that. SECTION 1. Courses on the life, works and writings of José Rizal, in particular his novel Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, are included in the curricula of all public or private schools, colleges and universities: provided that in college courses, the original or unredacted editions of Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo or their English translation are used as basic texts. Article 2 provided that pupils were to read novels as they were written in Spanish, although there was a provision that the Council of National Education should establish rules for their application. [3] The last two sections were intended to make Rizal`s works available to the public: the second section asked schools to have „a reasonable number” of copies in their libraries, while the third section asked the board to publish the works in the main Philippine languages.

On 12 May 1956, a compromise inserted by the chairman of the Education Committee, Laurel, which took into account the objections of the Catholic Church, was adopted unanimously.
