Is the K 12 model good for the Philippine educational system?
The enhanced K-12 program, or the Department of Education’s (Dep Ed) proposal to overhaul the basic and secondary education curriculum by adding two more years to the system is arguably one of the most drastic and controversial programs of the Aquino administration.
