    I have to top-of-the-mind opinions on this (IMHO) :)

    1. The intention of the program is really good since high school grads can be more prepared for work at a very early stage
    2. Since the program will add more years in their education level, others are concerned for the possibility that the students will get “umay” in studying/going to school.

      I agree that the intention is good. I guess one of the reasons why people are still apprehensive about the K to 12 is because its going to change the education system as we know it. And generally, people do not like change because the results can go either way.

      I don’t think that students will get “umay” going to school. If I can reverse the time, I wish I could go back to college where most of the carefree moments of my life were spent.

      By the time graduates of the K to 12 emerge from school, they are two years older than graduates from the traditional system. Hopefully, more matured in handling a job compared if they ended school at 16. Plus, I think it will lessen the probability of having child labor because high school students will now graduate at 18 rather than 16 (that is if they opt to graduate). But I still think more students will stay in school. Some of the Filipino families still think that a highschool diploma is still better than no diploma and I think when there is an opportunity to make it happen, we will strive to make it happen.

      Now that there’s a push from the K to 12 program, then not only will we have more capable graduates working but we will also have done it in a legal way.

      Again this is all in theory and I hope that the first year of K to 12 receives all the support it can get to make this program successful in the long run.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this.

  3. K+12 empowers both the teacher and the learner, setting major components in proper perspective- language us, application of skills and more importantly providing education that will provide jobs even as entrepreneurs.

    it’s ok to implement this new curriculum here in our country but i think there is need more understanding about this new program most especially the parents of the students… that all.

      Hello Markey,

      I agree with you that’s why I will keep on posting information I encounter about the K12 in Special Education Philippines. I have listened to different talks about K12 and it seems something is still missing in my understanding of the program. Sp keep coming back to this site and share if ever you encounter more information about this program so we can discuss further.
