Values Education is one of the subjects that children must take at public schools. In the K to 12 curriculum, Values Education developed into Edukasyon sa Pagpapahalaga, which was subsequently modified to Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao (EsP). It enables the teachers to assist pupils in developing their values, attitudes, and habits in order for them to become good citizens of the country. This is where EsP plays a critical role in shaping students to be contributors to society's growth. Society's development does not have a predefined feature since it is the product of a consensus among its members.

Inadequate knowledge of the strategies teachers can use with various types of learners, a lack of understanding of the nature of the subject due to irrelevant field of specialization, and, most importantly, the limited time available to teach the subject, particularly during distance learning due to COVID-19 are the reasons that triggered the interest of the researcher to determine the level of understanding of selected Grade Nine (9) students of West Fairview High School in terms of Social Rights, Duties and Responsibilities of each individual in our present society.

To come up with the study's objectives, the research considers related reading materials from books, the internet, journals, magazines, and abstracts, both published and unpublished. The study's proponent thought it was useful in getting a more in-depth discussion of the research topic. Furthermore, the researcher utilized Descriptive Research Design to systematically to describe a situation, problem and phenomenon. Purposive sampling method we’re also being utilized in this study so that the researcher can freely choose the respondent selectively. Also, both face-to-face learning were also assessed.

Furthermore, in understanding social rights, duties and responsibilities through actual situations; student-respondents have conceptual knowledge in defining social rights, while fundamental knowledge on both social duties and social responsibilities. Among the three, social rights, duties and responsibilities; it was social rights to which students better defined in comparison to the duties and responsibilities.

The goal of education is to develop the holistic skills and ability of the students which includes intellectual skills, emotional skills and behavioral skills. Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao curriculums have gained so much interest for more than a decade past wherein it is intended to produce students who are thoughtful, ethical, morally responsible, community oriented, and self-disciplined that why upon the recommendation, the research recommends that to combine effective and efficient teaching techniques or teaching materials in remote learning toward face-to-face learning, as distance learning has been shown to be superior than conventional learning in terms of evaluation.
