Higher Education Landscape and Critical Areas of Concern of Philippine Higher Education Institutions
Last December 12, 2012, different stakeholders of the K to 12 Education Program convened to meet for the K to 12 Education Program.
One of the presentation for the said conference is by Dr. Patricia Licuanan, Chairperson of the Commission on Higher Education.
Today, we will be presenting the higher education landscape and Critical Areas of Concern identified for Philippine Higher Education Institutions.
During the Pre-Summit Conference for the K to 12 Education Program, Dr. Patricia B. Licuanan, Chairperson of the Commission of Higher Education presented the relation of K to 12 to Higher Education.
One of the goals of implementing the K to 12 Program is to see its benefits in the long term perspective. Naturally one of those benefits is K to 12’s role in preparing our high school graduates to higher education.
Since the presentation of Dr. Licuanan is divided into different portions as listed in the outline below. Hence, the succeeding posts will be divided into different categories as well.
The goal of releasing this presentation obtained from the K to 12 Pre-Summit Conference is not to convince you that the K to 12 Education Program is the sole solution to the challenges we are facing right now in the Philippine’s educational performance.
Hence, Special Education Philippines would like to be clear that these items were identified during Department Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro’s presentation during the Pre-Summit Conference. Comments will be limited in this post lest some people might think that Special Education Philippines claim these promises on its own.
This information is based on the K to 12 Education Program Pre-Summit Conference last December 12, 2011.
1. What is K to 12?
As you can see in the diagram above and with the passing of the Kindergarten Education Act, all Filipino children will have the right to receive a preschool education. The +2 years is the plus 2 years of Senior Year. The previous first year to fourth year will now start with Grade 7 to Grade 10. And the last two years will be the senior high school years which will help our students become more competitive and enabled graduates.
This school year has about less than two months before it ends and next school year DepEd will launch its K to 12 Program to pre-selected schools both private and public.
