This paper attempted to determine the advantages and disadvantages and the perspective of the parents regarding K12 program. This research design used in this study is the descriptive research method wherein data from documents were used to answer the research question posed. Education in the Philippines has and always been a treasure for all Filipinos who wish to improve life a little bit especially those belonging to the middle and low income group. But with the advent of the K+12 Basic program of the Department of Education where formal education starts from Kindergarten, six years in elementary, three years junior high school and two years senior high school. Counting the number of years that parents will devote to spending for their children's education means more work, more efforts to exert, more waiting years before they will finally see their children graduate from basic education. Parents think of the longer period before they can witness their children earn their living, a common dream of a typical Filipino parent. However, if this program will be fully materialized, Filipino graduates of basic education become highly comparable and competent as with their other Asian and global counterparts. Parents may shell more for school needs but they just have to think that their children can already enroll in other countries, if they wish to, because of the competitive basic education curriculum. This should be the thinking of a rational parent, a must for a progressive country like in the Philippines
The Philippine education system pursues the achievement of excellent undergraduates in the elementary and secondary level. The Department of Education pronounces the addition of two more years in the basic education of students, which according to them will benefit not only the Filipino youth but all the Filipino in the Philippines. The administration asserts that with the implementation of such program, the problem of unemployment in the country will be resolved. In as much as employment in the Philippines is concerned, the K12 education also responds to the fact that most countries in the world already have the same plan in their educational institutions. With this, the standards of these countries go a notch higher than what the country has, thus, creating an expansion in the global competency. “We need to add two years to our basic education. Those who can afford pay up to fourteen years of schooling before university. Thus, their children are getting into the best universities and the best jobs after graduation. I want at least 12 years for our public school children to...
...The Present PhilippineEducation System and K+ 12
Filipinos have deep regard for education. Education occupies a central place in the Philippine economic, political, social and cultural life. It has been strongly viewed as the pillar of national development and a primary avenue for social and economic mobility. A clear evidence of the value placed ineducation is the proportion of the national government budget going to that sector. The Department of Education is given the highest budget allocation among government agencies each year as required by the 1987 Philippine Constitution.
The 1987 Constitution likewise guarantees the right to education of every Filipino. Laws were passed too to reaffirm this policy of the state: Republic Act 9155 or the Governance of Basic Education Act of 2001 and the Republic Act 6655 or the Free Secondary Education Act. The policy of the State and these laws provide children free and compulsory education in the elementary and high school level. This pertains to six years of free tuition fees for children aged 6 to 11, and free four years of secondary schooling for those aged 12 to 15.
However, despite these legal mechanisms, budget prioritization, and increased access Philippine...

...Problem of the Study
Education is the basic foundation of learning and studying. Without it mankind will be
dull and unproductive. Every child has a right of formal education poor, middle class or rich.
Currently the education of our country the Philippines faces numerous perils like lacking of
skilled professional teachers; insufficient funding of school related projects like school supplies
and classrooms, and the students lack of basic necessities due to poverty. Also more children are
dropping out due to extreme poverty especially in rural areas. Some Children are forced to work
with their parents, others are forced into and early life of crime or become beggars in the streets.
Children who are not affected by these factors are very lucky to get formal education. Though
by the time the child graduates high school and college. Some companies and foreign employers
are not accepting our overseas workforce, because our formal education in our country is not
enough for international standards. The problem? Our country's ten (10) year educational system
we have been using for the past century is outdated. This is said to cause the inflammation of the
unemployment rate and rising poverty in the Philippines.
The government particularly the Department of Education (DepEd) has currently made a
solution to this problem....

More Skilled and Competent Labor Force
Another good reason why we should support K- 12 is that the graduates of this program will be more prepared to enter the labor force. As we all noticed, high school graduates of the current curriculum are not yet employable for the reason that they are not yet competent and well – equipped with the skills needed in the workplaces. In addition, most high school graduates are not yet reaching the legal age of 18. With the new curriculum, senior high school students can choose a field that they are good at and that they are interested in. As a result,...
What is K to 12?
“K to 12” stands for kindergarten plus 12 years of elementary and secondary education. This educational system for basic and secondary education is widely adopted around the world.
DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro presented the Basic Education Sector Reform Agenda (BESRA) last March in the annual membership meeting of the Philippine Business forEducation (PBEd). BESRA, as a package of reform initiatives, considers K to 12 as the flagship reform strategy. The objective of the program is to be able to produce more productive and responsible citizens equipped with the essential competencies and skills for both life-long learning and employment.
From among various proposals and studies conducted to come up with an enhanced model that is suitable to the Philippine context, DepEd proposed the K-6-4-2 model or the K to 12 model. This model involves kindergarten, six years of elementary education, four years of junior high school (Grades 7-10), and two years of senior high school (Grades 11-12). The two years of senior high school intend to provide time for students to consolidate acquired academic skills and competencies. The curriculum will allow specializations in science and technology, music and arts,...
