Neutral desks for left-handed students, batas na.



Republic Act No. 11394 or the "Mandatory Provision of Neutral Desks in Educational Institutions Act" was signed into law by President Duterte last Aug. 22, 2019.

Under this new law,  left-handed students will no longer have to worry about the difficulty of writing and doing stuff using the traditional desks provided by DepEd which obviously only cater the right-handed students.


This law now requires all educational institutions to provide appropriate armchairs to address the needs of all students, including the left-handed ones.

"It shall be obligatory for all educational institutions, both public and private, that make use of armchairs in the classroom to provide neutral desks to all students," the law says.

However, DepEd announced that to provide the number of neutral desks they will need ample time for it which possibly be completed in 2025.
