One of the issues always raised about formal education in the Philippines is its inability to supply students and graduates with the skills that employers are looking for. This is called the “mismatch” between what schools supply and what enterprises demand. Companies have to spend time and money training the fresh graduates that they hire.

One of the reasons the government undertook a massive educational reform program was the mismatch between what schools produced and what industries needed.

In 2010, President Noynoy Aquino convened a Steering Committee for K to 12. He assigned the Department of Education (DepEd), the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to co-chair the Committee.

Spiraling in the K to 12 curriculum simply means that a particular learning area or discipline is taught starting in Kindergarten and gradually enhanced until the student masters it by Grade 12.

During the transition period when there will be fewer or no freshmen in college, college teachers who have master’s degrees will be eligible for Commission on Higher Education (CHED) scholarships to take up doctoral studies here or abroad.

What do we do with the 2,796 permanent and 10,119 non-permanent college teachers (a total of 12, 915) who will be potentially displaced by the K to 12 reform?

To appreciate the complexity of the curriculum for the Filipino language in K to 12, we have to refer to two documents of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED): Resolution No. 298-2011 and CMO 54, series of 2007.
