Philippine Basic Education: DepEd’s K-12 won’t solve existing problems in education system

Philippine Basic Education: DepEd’s K-12 won’t solve existing problems in education system | Education for Sustainability-Philippines | Scoop.it

QUEZON City, May 17, 2012—Department of Education’s (DepEd) K-12 program won’t solve the existing problems in the basic public education system in the country such as shortages in rooms, educational materials, and other facilities and equipment; underfunding; the orientation of the education system itself; and access.

This was the opinion of Kabataan Partylist Rep. Raymond de Vega Palatino as DepEd seems to be too “pre-occupied” by producing “quality” graduates through the help of K+12 program.

 

“The K to 12 program envisions to produce graduates with '21st century skills' but clearly, we are far from having 21st century facilities essential in achieving suitable learning conditions. The [Benigno] Aquino government has yet to present a convincing program to remedy the existing shortages in the education sector. How can basic education qualitatively function amid these dire shortages? Students cannot properly learn if, in the first place, there are no sufficient classrooms to study in, chairs to seat on, teachers to learn from, and textbooks to read,” said Palatino.
