Education is a very important aspect of life for me. Well, some people might not be passionate about education but I believe that it is essential to survive in this world. A person is able to read and write and has an edge can have many opportunities waiting for him.

I do not mean that people who do not an have education have no opportunities. In fact, many people with no or little education are more educated than people who have proper education. What I mean in that sentence is that, education is about your morals too. It is not about Math, Science, or History. It is also about your morals, judgement, etc.

Thank you, dear sponsors!

Now, in this article, I want to talk about the K-12 education system in my country, the Philippines. So, what is K-12?

k-12, according to k12philippines.com,

The Department of Education's Kโ€“12 (also known as Kโ€“12) educational program seeks to improve students' fundamental abilities, generate more responsible citizens, and prepare graduates for lifelong learning and employment. Kindergarten is denoted by "K," while the next 12 years of elementary school are denoted by "12." (6 years of elementary education, 4 years of junior high school, and 2 years of senior high school).

So, there you have it. Now, there is a proposal of Vice President Sara Duterte who is now the Secretary of Education to review this K-12 Program.

President-elect Bongbong Marcos and VP Sara Inday Duterte discussed assessing the Kโ€“12 program's execution, the former claimed during a press conference on June 20. Sara Duterte and Bongbong Marcos have not made it clear that they support ending the k-12 program.

How did it affect us as a family directly?

Because of the added two years, we have to work harder for us to make sure that our bunso will finish her schooling. We are not rich, we are just a middle income. I can say that the program is competitive from the international aspect but it is a struggle for us to add more years in schooling.

Some families including us but no pressure are expecting their children to have a job as soon as they get out of school to help the family or to make their career. But because of added two more years, it will be delayed.

Different people will have different opinions about this review of the program. Now that the VP is the secretary of education, I expect a lot from her.

K-12 brought a lot of potential for the educational system in the Philippines and so a lot of downsides. One downside is many teachers were laid off because of the change in the system. We do not have a lot of classrooms too. There are many things that should be reviewed as per the vice president.

I am not against the program. There is no perfect education system in the world but what I hope is that it will be improved and will be better, and why not be an international standard.


That is it for today. Thank you for reading. I will see you at the next one.

For me, goods naman si K-12. Admit it or not, 'di naman lahat is naituturo sa JHS. Grades 11 & 12 helps the students to prepare themselves more better when they step up to college~ especially now that we're in the middle of pandemic. Kulang tayo sa knowledge lalo na sa high school level. It's just that may mga disadvantages and flaws nga lang talaga na dapat pang i-improve, like what we're expecting for President BBM and VP Sara to accomplish during their term.

K-12 was developed for us to be globally competitive, and you're right that there are still concerns and issues that the Department of Education should address for the betterment of the curriculum and for the learners as well.

For me there has been a great contribution about the k to 12 but we also need to hear those sentiments of the parents cause they have the hardest time to cope with their budget especially there are alot of things to sacrifice. K to 12 is good for me...but are we qualified to have this especially we are one of the lowest budget in education

Parents always want their children to well qualified. It's really burdened the parents financially but will give good future to the students.

Agree ako diyan sa nadagdagan yung gastusin. Pero thankful ako kasi may voucher naman na available galing sa DepEd. Buti nalang inapplyan yun ng kapatid ko, kaya less nalang nabayaran. May iba naman na free yung sa SHS, which is good. Hopefully lang free tuition fee parin sa mga state university. May mga scholarship din. Para kahit mahirap man, pwedeng pwede parin na makapagtapos ng pag-aaral. And sa panahon ngayon, dapat talaga inclined ang growth ng mga students. Siguro it's time lang na hindi dapat isipin na yung anak dapat makatapos agad para matulongan ang pamilya na iahon sa hirap. Alam ko sentiments dito kasi yan ako ngayon. Kaya mapupunta na naman dito sa family planning, financial literacy, at iba pa. Sana ang improvements na yan, for the majority, for everyone.

Very well said, sis! I agree for more improvements, more quality education for us. Para naman ito sa future ng mga kabataan at sa bansa. Madaming benefits ang gobyerno para sa pag aaral and I appreciate them for doing so.

For me, sayang ung dagdag 2years napag aaral e, dagdag gastos para sa mga magulang. And I am lucky na hindi ko naabutan yan. Instead of them continuing the extention of 2years, they should study on how to improve the quality of education here in the Philippines.

Me too I am lucky na hindi ko na naabutan yung system. My sister has to take it though. Currently senior high siya tas na stop pa dahil sa pandemic. Mas gusto niya kasi face to face class kasi nahihirapan siya sa virtual. Though magandang system ito to level up our education quality.

Agree ako na irereview, at sana iimprove nila. So far with current implementation, parang nagiging dagdag pasanin lang talaga. Kasi after mag senior high, wala di naman natanggap ang mga companies ng ganung level lang.

Ang nakikita ko rin e mataas yung standard ng ibang companies tapos hindi naman angkop yung sasahurin ng empleyado. Sana yung ibang companies ay i ayon rin yung sahod nila sa educ level ng empleyado.

Dami talaga akong narinig about sa K-12 sis. Yung struggle ng mga parents lalong dumagdag kasi gusto nila mapagtapos yung mga anak nila in college pero mahabang process pa o dagdag gastusin pa naman dahil sa K-12.

Tama po. Kaya need talaga ireview yung program. I am happy na may ganito tayong program actually kasi parang lumelevel na tayo sa internation standard. Pero kailangan na suriin nang mabuti ng gobyerno natin para na rin sa ikakabuti ng madami.
