ACT Teachers: K to12, Kinalburo


Naglunsad ng kilos-protesta ang iba’t ibang organisasyon ng mga kabataang estudyante at mga guro sa pangunguna ng ACT Teachers Party List para tutulan ang programa sa edukasyon na K-12 ng pamahalaang Aquino. Sila ay nagdaos ng programa sa harap ng Malakañang para ipahayag ang mariing pagtutol at pagkundena sa wala sa panahong programang K-12 na ayon sa kanila ay “hinog sa pilit”.

Ayon sa grupo dapat lamang na ibasura ang K-12 sapagkat minadali o kinalburo ang pagpapatupad ng naturang programa. Maraming isyu ang anila ay mas dapat tutukan ng pamahalaan gaya ng kakulangan sa silid-aralan, kakulangan sa guro at mismong kasanayan ng mga guro ay hindi pa naitataas ang antas upang umangkop sa K to 12.

ACT: Ibasura ang K to 12 education program ng pamahalaang Aquino

Nagmartsa ang mga guro at istudyante sa ilalim ng Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) at National Union of Students of the Philippines mula Philippine Normal University patungong Liwasang Bonifacio para ipakita ang mariing pagtutol sa pagpapatupad ng K-12 program sa edukasyon ng pamahalaang Aquino. Hiniling din nila na isuspinde ang kurikulum ng K-12 dahil wala diumano itong basehan na makakatulong ito sa pag-unlad ng bayan bagkus tiyak na panganib ang patutunguhan ng mga mag-aaral na papailalim sa programa dahil mas papaboran nito ang Labor Export Policy imbis na mabigyan ng disenteng trabaho sa Pilipinas.
