The study aims to expound on the politics involved in the conduct of Arabic Language and Islamic Values Education (ALIVE) in selected Philippine elementary schools. The ALIVE is the Philippine government attempt to mainstream madrasah education into the public education system. Through case study research, the authors found out that as a program for the minority population, the implementation of the program was affected by the marginal status and “otherness” of Muslims in Philippine society. If unexamined, the biased attitudes of the Christian majority towards the Muslims can hugely affect the success of ALIVE.
