"Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labor in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common." - Albert Einstein

Which One Is True? There Is No Problem with DepEd K + 12, Or Is There a Problem?

From Journal Online

DepEd: No problem with K to 12 program

"FOLLOWING the formal signing into law of the K to 12 program, the Department of Education (DepEd) said he sees no problem in reaching a higher number of enrollees for preschool children before classes formally open on June 3. 
DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said based on their datas, there are already 2.2 million children enrolled in kindergarten."

61,510 Teachers needed; many found unqualified — DepEd

The Department of Education (DepEd) is having difficulty filling new teacher positions, especially for kindergarten, because “many of the applicants were simply not qualified,” Education Secretary Armin Luistro said yesterday. 
Luistro said there are 61,510 vacancies needing to be filled for school year 2013-2014. 
While there are many graduates who have already passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), but DepEd “cannot accommodate all of them if they are not qualified because our students will suffer.”
When the DepEd began looking for teachers to fill up the vacancies, particularly for kindergarten, “we found out that there were not enough qualified teachers for the kindergarten positions,” Luistro said.

  2. hmmn.. not qualified?! think of it, nag aral ang mga ito beginning (if there is) from kindergarden,elem., high sch., college and pass the LET exam then they will say they are not qualified. Do you think ang mga GURO na humubog at nagturo din sa mga ito simula sa umpisa hanggang sa silay makapag tapos ay mga di rin qualified na masasabi? why not give them a chance? who knows sila yong mga tutuong mga guro sa puso at gawa...
