The Kabataan Partylist Members Want The Abolition Of The K-12 Implementation
KABATAAN PARTYLIST – The representative of the youth sector – Kabataan Partylist – wants the K-12 implementation to be stopped in Duterte’s administration.
It was back in 2013, when former president Benigno Aquino singed the K-12 program – The Republic Act 10533 – to become a law. The implementation of this law will add two more years to basic education in the Philippines.
After a few years of observation – watching student under the k-12 program progress in their academic careers – there must’ve been some negative factors that triggered the Kabataan Partylist to call for its abolition.
Prospero De Vera, current chairman of Commission on Higher Education or CHED, reportedly noticed several concerns about the implemented transition program that raised some red flags.
He notice some problems including pending projects and the lack of provision for the salary of project-based researchers.
This is according to an article from RMN Networks.
Kabataan party list insisted to the house of representatives that K-12 is not a valid solution to the lowering quality of education in the Philippines. Instead, it only adds to the problem.
According also to Kabataan, all K-12 did was experiment on the children under the program, give them false hopes, add to their workloads and make them pay more money.
The Congressman also explained that there were millions of students were only forced to participate in the system but instead of improving the quality of education, it only drove them away from opportunities of finding a job.
With this, the Kabataan party list presented nine resolution proposals including one where they called for the cancellation of the K-12 Program.
Overall, there had been numerous negative feedbacks about the K-12 program implementation. As of now, the authorities are probably working on the best possible actions to be taken.
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
