Most of the members here are in North America and have nothing on which to base such a decision. This, like your other post, seems like an assignment.

It does seem that there is a public school system in the Phillipines:


"In August 2001, Republic Act 9155, otherwise called the Governance of Basic Education Act, was passed transforming the name of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) to the Department of Education (DepEd) and redefining the role of field offices (regional offices, division offices, district offices and schools). RA 9155 provides the overall framework for (i) school head empowerment by strengthening their leadership roles and (ii) school-based management within the context of transparency and local accountability. The goal of basic education is to provide the school age population and young adults with skills, knowledge and values to become caring, self-reliant, productive and patriotic citizens.[11]
In 2005, the Philippines spent about US$138 per pupil compared to US$3,728 in Japan, US$1,582 in Singapore and US$852 in Thailand.[21]
In January 2009, DepEd signed a memorandum of agreement with the United States Agency for International Development to seal $86*million assistance to Philippine education, particularly the access to quality education in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), and the Western and Central Mindanao regions.[22]
[edit]Education system

There are three stages of compulsory education in the Philippines. These are:
Preschool and elementary consists of 7 years of education.
Junior high school consists of 4 years of education.
Senior high school consists of additional 2 years of education."


but students in rural area have less access for a variety of reasons :

Maybe the OP will come back and enlighten us, and perhaps share his own thoughts on this question....

I'm in favor of implementing k-12 program in the Philippines. because, it will uplift the quality of education in the Philippines. The students will be able to enhance their knowledge and and they will also be emotionally ready to face the challenges in the real world scenario.

I don't think I am informed enough to have an opinion.

K-12 will really uplift the quality education in the Philippines. The K-12 program will respond to the need of developing the country's competitiveness. The future graduates of this program have the skills and competencies for the global standards.

Does your teacher know she could set up a class discussion forum/blog on her own on which students could be required to pose and discuss these sorts of questions?
