* In­ter­na­tional test results con­sis­tently show Filipino stu­dents lag­ging way be­hind prac­ti­cally ev­ery­body else in the world.

* The con­gested cur­ricu­lum partly ex­plains the present state of ed­u­ca­tion.” Twelve years of con­tent are crammed into ten years.

* This qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion is re­flected in the 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. Since most chil­dren start Grade1 when they are 6 years old, they do not reach the le­gal em­ploy­able age of 18 when they grad­u­ate from high school to­day.

*The cur­rent sys­tem also re­in­forces the mis­per­cep­tion that ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion is just a prepara­tory step for higher ed­u­ca­tion.”

The govern­ment be­lieves that the K-12 cur­ricu­lum in the Philip­pines will put Filipino stu­dents at par with the rest of the world. Truly, in­vest­ing in ed­u­ca­tion is the key to­ward reach­ing national growth and de­vel­op­ment.

There may be a lot of fac­tors to con­sider for the K+12 Ed­u­ca­tion to suc­ceed. But as long as we open our minds to change and we take it on a pos­i­tive way, we will def­i­nitely at­tain our most-as­pired ed­u­ca­tional stan­dards which will play a great role in our coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment and will there­fore, up­lift us from poverty.
