A three-day orientation seminar-workshop for newly hired teachers in kindergarten, elementary, junior and senior high school initiated by Malaybalay City Division was conducted on June 7 to 9 at Roberto’s Place, Casisang, Malaybalay City.
“The 251 schools is the best gift of the Aquino administration to the indigenous people,” said Bro. Armin A. Luistro FSC, Secretary of the Department of Education, during the grand opening of the 40 schools for Indigenous Peoples in Region X on June 2 at Luyungan High School, Nasuli, Bangcud, Malaybalay City with the theme: “Katutubong Edukasyon Tungo sa Matagumpay na Buhay.”
The advent of K 12 curriculum stirs up the Philippine educational system. This recent change in the Philippines’ educational system was implemented four years ago when President Benigno Aquino III signed the K 12 education into law in 2013, adding three years to the country’s basic education curriculum.
The K 12 curriculum requires all Filipino students to have one year of kindergarten, six years of elementary schooling (grades 1 to 6), four years of junior high school (grades 7 to 10), and two years of senior high school (grades 11 to 12). Prior to the implementation of the K 12 curriculum, the Philippines is the last country in Asia and was one of the only three countries in the world with Angola and Djibouti in Africa with a 10-year pre-university or basic education cycle. The 10 year education cycle has always been seen as a disadvantage for our students who are competing in an increasingly global job market compared to our neighboring countries and the rest of the world who has been in the K12 curriculum.Continue reading Championing the SHS Curriculum→
To inquire on the impact of K-12 Senior High School program, Vice Mayor Roland Deticio and the Sanguniang Panlungsod Members of the City of Malaybalay invited the Division of Malaybalay City core officials to conduct an orientation.
This invitation is another indicator of the LGU’s cooperation towards enhancing basic education.
Three years after the law was passed and implemented, the program will be put to its final test this incoming school year 2016 –2017 as DepEd caters to the first batch of senior high school students. Many institutions question the impact of this change for students or even the entire community.
