Understanding the K-12 Basic Education Program

“Education is the key to the long-term problems of the country. If we fix basic education, we fix the long-term problems of the country. And if we fix the country’s problems, we will build a truly strong society. . .” -Pres. Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III

10-Point Basic Education Agenda

The Philippines is the only remaining country in Asia with a 10-year preuniversity program.

The majority who do not go to college are too young to enter the labor force. Thus, they would either be unemployed or be vulnerable to exploitative labor practices.  Those who may be interested to set up businesses cannot legally enter into contracts. 

Our graduates are being disadvantaged by their youth and inadequate preparation. . .

The few, (only 23%) who would proceed to tertiary education, usually have to undergo remedial and high school level classes in colleges and universities.  Those who graduate (17%) may not be recognized as professionals abroad. 

Our graduates are being disadvantaged by their youth and inadequate preparation. . .

The Washington Accord prescribes 12 years of basic education as an entry to recognition of engineering professionals.  The Bologna Accord requires 12 years of education for university admission and practice of profession in European countries. 

Our graduates are being disadvantaged by their youth and inadequate preparation. . .

“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 give them an even chance at succeeding.” -Pres. Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III

Enhancement of the basic education curriculum is the central focus of K to 12.  The enhanced curriculum will offer areas of specialization or electives such as science and technology, arts, sports, journalism, tech-voc, foreign language, entreperneurship, and subjects for advanced placement. 

Key Features of K to 12

Grades 7-12 Core Curriculum and Career Paths





Filipino learners, in order to be globally competitive, need to develop 21st century core skills( digital age literacy, inventive thinking, effective communication, and high productivity) and be functionally literate. Aside from the development of 21st century core skills, the extended high school program should be packaged for the preparation of students for career and higher education. This is because secondary education is designed primarily to provide the transition from school to work and from school to further learning.

Premises



The curriculum shall be designed to provide a blended career and college preparatory program. Putting the two on the same level and blending them will enhance the seamless relationship between career and higher education and give them equal social and economic value.
