Abstract

Corruption has several negative effects on society, especially in developing countries such as the Philippines. Effective civic education is a key weapon against corruption in a country. Therefore, this study determines the present perceptions, knowledge, and understanding of the Filipino Youth on corruption. Quantitative research method was used to gather the primary data of this study. The questionnaire survey was conducted among the Filipino Youth from academic and police sectors age between 18-30 years old. The questionnaire survey was conducted in selected institutions in the National Capital Region and participated by the Philippine National Police, City of Malabon University, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Manila, Taguig City University, and University of Caloocan for the quantitative survey. The collected quantitative data were interpreted using the four-point Likert scale and SPSS analysis. The obtained result shows corruption is common sense in the country, but most knowledge and criticism are highly limited to governance, power, money, greed and powerful people. Bad leaders have been pinpointed in this study as the main culprit of corruption and they are expert in creating an environmental condition of submission and tolerance from the population with the use of violence and other unethical acts. Due to the pervasiveness and extensiveness of corruption problem, majority of the population considered it as a normal process showing no reactions or resistance..
