K + 12 Basic Education Program

We (me and co-bloggers) had a chance to talked with Department of Education Assistant Secretary Tonicito Umali about the enhanced K+12 Basic  Education Program and its rationale.K+12 means Knidergarten (5 years old) and the 12 years of elementary and secondary education (6 or 7 years of education).

Article XIV, Section2(1) of the 1987 Philippine Constitution which states that 'The state shall establish, maintain, and support a complete, adequate, and integrated system of education relevant to the needs of the people and society' to support this the government enhanced K+12 basic education program to seek and provide a quality 12-year basic education program that each Filipino is entitled to.

Rationale such as; enhancing the quality of basic education in the Philippines is urgent critical, increasing the low achievement scores of Filipino students, increase the international test results, developing the congested curriculum, inadequate preparation of high school graduates for the world of work or entrepreneurship or higher education,  most graduates are too young to enter the labor force, the current system also reinforces the misconception that basic education is just a preparatory step for higher education, Phils. graduates are not automatically recognized as professionals abroad and short basic education program affects the human development of the Filipino children.

With its number one vision which is to 'empowered individual who was learned, though a program that is rooted on sound educational principles and geared towards excellence, the foundations for learning throughout life, the competence to engage in work and be productive, the ability to coexist in fruitful harmony with local and global communities,engage in autonomous critical thinking and capacity to tranform others and one' self'. I think this program would be very successful for our children's future and our country as well.
