As part of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) action to overhaul the country’s education system, the K-12 program is designed to make sure that the students are well equipped in whatever path they choose later in life.
Whether a student chooses to go to college or become part of the workforce right after graduation, the K-12 curriculum is set to make students more prepared not just here but for other countries as well.
