Perception of Selective Students on K-12 Curriculum in Compa
Transcript of Perception of Selective Students on K-12 Curriculum in Compa
REPUBLIC ACT NO. 10533 AN ACT ENHANCING THE PHILIPPINE
BASIC EDUCATION SYSTEM BY STRENGTHENING ITS CURRICULUM
AND INCREASING THE NUMBER OF YEARS FOR BASIC EDUCATION,
APPROPRIATING FUNDS THEREFOR AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES
“We need to add two years to our basic education. Those who can afford pay up to fourteen years of schooling before university. Thus, their children are getting into the best universities and the best jobs after graduation. I want at least 12 years for our public school children to give them an even chance at succeeding.” (Aquino III, 2011)
K12 educational systems are additional years to secondary level. This research contains some information about curriculum of K12. This means that the present four years in high school will be called Junior High School and additional two years as senior High School. The model, which is being proposed, is K-6-4-2 where K means Kindergarten (5 years old), 6 means six years in elementary (6 to 11 years old), 4 means four years in Junior High School (12 to 15 years old) and 2 means two years in Senior High School (16 to 17 years old). (DepEd, n.d).
Kindergarten will start in school year 2011 – 2012. The new and enhanced curriculum in Grade 1 and first year high school will start in school year 2012 – 2013. The first year senior high school or the eleventh year will begin in school year 2016 – 2017. The first graduates of the 12- year curriculum will be in 2018. (DepEd, n.d).
Enhancing the quality of basic education in the Philippines is urgent and critical. The poor quality of basic education is reflected in the low achievement scores of Filipino students. One reason is that students do not get adequate instructional time or task.
Our children deserve to receive the best education our country can provide for them and our economy depends on an educated and skilled workforce to be successful in the global market.
The K to 12 Curriculum
It was almost a year ago that advocacy on the change of educational curriculum of the Philippine Educational System was started and that orientation and information disseminations had been conducted to several venues that cater different stakeholders coming from different sectors in the community. It is along with this activity that made everyone if not everybody come to the point of awareness on what is going on with our educational system .With this new transformation it came to the minds of the masses why this should be done? Is it a must to change our curriculum? Will it pose a great difference between the old to the upcoming innovation? Nevertheless, it is now high time that this long planned implementation of this new curriculum be flourished on the field of education such that queries be addressed with this much awaited K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum program; a collaborative efforts not only by the Dep Ed but also with the two giant agencies of the government; TESDA and CHED. This coming school year 2012-2013 will be the starting year for this change which started from the roll – out of Grades 1 and 7.Implementation of this curriculum will be simultaneous both the public elementary and secondary schools and of course with no exception to the private schools hence further enhancement could be done to suit their school vision / mission is allowed. On this aspect it is expected that general guidelines will be followed which covers all possible areas and that, schools are challenge to perform in a creative and innovative ways. Part and parcel of the successful implementation is the full support of the teachers and should serve as the human dynamite that could create an atmosphere being the catalyst of change. Paramount to this, a teacher must possess basic competencies in order to become an effective K to 12 implementers; although each one of us has our own unique style based from orientations in life and the way we come up with different changes to any presented innovations.
To what extent does a teacher possess on becoming a K to 12 implementer? Have they recalled and internalized the 5 C’s of an effective teacher? As the prime agent of change I believe that as a teacher and as a leader both should posses this 5 C’s to enable one to propel a child in achieving personal development and self-determination in its own free and responsible ways. Such that teaching the learners in the forms of content and performance standards be facilitated. As to what pupils are expected to know, be able to do and understand and on the other hand as an implementer we can assist the learners to be able to use their learning or understanding in real –life situations; and they should be able to do in their own. Such will be achievable when internalizing the 5C’s in a way that teacher should be committed; a “commitment” that we could educate the child’s faculty of the mind; the will and intellect of the child be satisfied in a well chosen manner. In order for the teacher to impart knowledge, he should equipped oneself with “competent” by knowing where he should direct the child’s learning, providing herself with substantial facts on the subject matter. Further, a teacher could be “creative”, a creativity that be radiated to the learners; on being the agent of transformation, his application of knowledge be evident to the child’s outcome. The next C is of being “compassion”, to be able to do something for the betterment; of doing work with people (stakeholders) around him with a common goal of enabling students to become globally competitive upon finishing his studies. Finally, developing learners in a way to become a better citizen is a combined effort foremost by the parents and importantly by the teachers. A teacher should teach with example on doing right in the right possible ways and perspectives. Possessing all and equipping with all these qualities of a teacher will facilitate the planned change of our curriculum wherein it evolves on different context but with common goal on achieving –Quality and Competitive Education. The main purpose of which is to facilitate pupil’s ability to understand and acquire knowledge, and to find methods of gaining and storing this and come to use it in a real-life situations.
The Philippine education system pursues the achievement of excellent undergraduates in the elementary and secondary level. The Department of Education pronounces the addition of two more years in the basic education of students, which according to them will benefit not only the Filipino youth but all the Filipino in the Philippines. (Luistro, 2010)
The administration asserts that with the implementation of such program, the problem of unemployment in the country will be resolved. In as much as employment in the Philippines is concerned, the K12 education also responds to the fact that most countries in the world already have the same plan in their educational institutions. With this, the standards of these countries go a notch higher than what the country has, thus, creating an expansion in the global competency. (DepEd, 2010)
