“Kulelat ang Pilipinas sa 58 na bansa na nag-participate sa 2019 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).”
That means our grade 4 students ranked last in Math and Science out of 58 countries across the world.
There may be many reasons behind this ranking, but is K-12 one of the solutions? In this episode of Proyekto Pilipino, Fr. Tito Caluag and his trio of distinguished guests—Manolo Quezon, Leloy Claudio, and Carlo Santiago—talk to Elvin Uy, former assistant secretary for curriculum and instruction and K to 12 Program coordinator of the Department of Education (DepEd). He talks about how the K-12 Program was 88 years in the making, how it aims to solve many gaps in education, and how it wants to bring up our competencies against international standards.
