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, agriculture and fisheries, sports,...

This research would be able to help the parents of the students who are affected by the K-12 program, this will give them an idea of what will be the advantages and disadvantages of the program, and if it will help their children grow from the academic nature. The students will benefit from the study by letting them know how they are going to be able to understand the addition of 2 years from their schooling. Students will know how it will provide a better quality of education to them. This study will benefit the teachers from the school, for them to be prepared for the additional two years to the basic education.

This research will also benefit the school, so they will anticipate the additional cost to the program, also the additional teachers and everything that they should be anticipating for.

...Cruz summarized the following pros and cons on the K+12 debate:
The PROS (which is basically the side of the government, well-heeled and articulate leaders from the academe, the business community and the media):
1. “Enhancing the quality of basic education in the Philippines is urgent and critical.”
2. “The poor quality of basic education is reflected in the low achievement scores of Filipino students. One reason is that students do not get adequate instructional time or time on task.”
3. International test results consistently show Filipino students lagging way behind practically everybody else in the world. In the 2008 mathematics exam, for example, we came in dead last.
4. “The congested curriculum partly explains the present state of education.” Twelve years of content are crammed into ten years.
5. “This quality of education is reflected in the inadequate preparation of high school graduates for the world of work or entrepreneurship or higher education.” If ten years were adequate, how come employers do not hire fresh high school graduates? How come most high school graduates flunk the UPCAT?
6. “Most graduates are too young to enter the labor force.” Since most children start Grade 1 when they are 6 years old, they do not reach the legal employable age of 18 when they graduate from high school today.
7. “The current system also reinforces the...
...Chapter 1: Introduction
Rationale and Importance
Due to the government’s lack of budget, facilities, and teachers, the K-12 curriculum will be hard to implement. The Philippines is need of better education, not more education. The problem of poor education should be solved first. The Department of Education (DepEd), it is the executive department of the Philippine government responsible for the management and governing of the Philippine system of basic education, should first ensure the people that the quality of their education is excellent. K-12education is an innovative education system. This area of education has a dominance over the conventional educational systems as it puts more weight on thinking and reaching own self-explanatory conclusions.
The way of teaching here is completely different and phenomenal. Teachers generally follow the tactic of asking students to work on a lot of assignments since it develops an intellectual, yet interesting learning habit. In reality, this method helps the students in revising what has been taught previously. In K-12education system, all the students are given individual attention and hence they understand their subjects in a more practical way. The role of a teacher here is just to...

...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. The K to...
