SENATOR SUGGESTS REVIEW OF K TO 12 SYSTEM MUST FOCUS ON GOING BACK TO BASIC
SENATE Committee on Basic Education, Arts and Culture chairman Sherwin Gatchalian stressed the need to go back to basic in reviewing the K to 12 system of education in the country.
“Ang aking magiging advise sa kanila is to put the basics in place. Let’s go back to basic. Reading, Mathematics, these are the basics that we need to strengthen,” Gatchalian said.
The senator admitted during the two years of the Covid19 pandemic, a lot of students regressed.
“Especially nitong two years na wala tayong pasok. Nakita ko maraming bata nag-regress. Maraming bata na marunong magbasa ngayon hindi na nakakabasa because nag-regress na sila. We need to go back to the basic,” Gatchalian stressed
Based on the law, the senator said there will be a three-year review of the curriculum.
“But we already produce some reports and solutions to the government for them to look at. So it will not take the full three years to come up with solutions. We have solutions already,”
