Why DepEd's K to 12 Is Not Education for All
Jaq Eroles recently wrote an article for the Philippine Online Chronicles:
In the article, Eroles provides data on what type of Senior High School years are in fact available for students. Eroles uses text to relate the data. However, it maybe useful to translate these numbers into figures.
For the National Capital Region (NCR), out of 10 high schools, only 7 are able to offer Technical-Vocational-Livelihood track.
For the same region, only 3 out of 10 schools can offer either the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) or the humanities strand.
The choices are severely limited and it is obvious that this is not education for all. The total numbers for the entire country are even far disconcerting. Out of 500 high schools, only one can in fact offer DepEd's K to 12 curriculum.
|For every 500 high schools in the Philippines, only one school can really offer DepEd's K to 12 Senior High School curriculum|
I hope the above picture makes it clear. This is the most blatant demonstration of a government requiring something that it cannot provide. It is appalling.
