K-12 in the Philippines: A remedy or a Trouble?
K-12 is a new Education Program in the Philippines that started this past year, 2012. The K to 12 System covers Kindergarten and more than a decade of standard education (six years of main education, 4 years of Younger High School, and two years of Senior High School [SHS]) to provide sufficient time for mastery of concepts and expertise, develop lifelong learners, and prepare teachers for tertiary education, middle-level skills development, employment, and entrepreneurship.

First of all, based on the studies given by the Division of Education, there are even more tendencies of the high school scholar that drops out or perhaps changes course in the middle of their tertiary education which causes even more trouble for both the parents and their child (children) and the fact that they are only too small to pressure themselves about what they actually want to become or perhaps what they want to get doing soon. Thus, finishing that providing them with more time to get ready and to evaluate their abilities will be more convenient and good for both the father or mother and the child (children).
Second, since 2 years has been added to the basic education here in the Philippines, just means that you will find more curriculums that have been added or will probably be added to the curriculum.
