These are Tinio's words in describing the photo above:
Spent a very enlightening morning in the classroom of a Grade 7 TLE teacher in a big public high school somewhere in the Visayas. At the moment, she's teaching Caregiving. Under the new K to 12 curriculum, the current grading period is devoted to teaching Caregiving. It's an "exploratory" short course that all Grade 7 students in the school are required to take.
Let that sink in. The traditional notion about education is that it's supposed to expose young people to the world of possibilities and enable them to be all that they can be. In Aquino's K to 12 curriculum, Filipino students at a young age are exposed to Caregiving in a foreign land as a possible career choice.To understand what "globally competitive" may actually mean in DepEd's K to 12, the following map from Business Insider may be helpful:
