Report in assessment of learning senior high school (k-12)

  1. 1. SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL K to 12 Program
  2. 2. “A curriculum needs to be updated regularly, not only to incorporate new knowledge but also to adapt to changing environmental, social, technological and global contexts.” -- Dr. Allan Bernardo
  3. 3. The Philippines is the only remaining country in Asia with a 10-year pre-university program. Our graduates are being disadvantaged by their youth and inadequate preparation. . . Only 23% who would proceed to tertiary education, usually have to undergo remedial and high school level classes in colleges and universities. Those who graduate (17%) may not be recognized as professionals abroad.
  4. 4. Why are we implementing 12 years of basic education and not 11 years? •A 12-year program is found to be the adequate period for learning under basic education. It is also a standard for recognition of students and/or professionals abroad (i.e., the Bologna Process for the European Union and the Washington Accord for the United States). •Other countries like Singapore have 11 years of compulsory education, but have 12 to 14 years of pre- university education, depending on the track. •The Philippines is the LAST country in Asia and one of only three countries worldwide (the other two being Angola and Djibouti) with a 10-year pre-university cycle.
  5. 5. Washington Accord • prescribes 12 years of basic education as an entry to recognition of engineering professionals Bologna Accord • requires 12 years of education for university admission and practice of profession in European countries • starting 2010, undergraduate degrees in the Philippines are no longer recognized in most European countries
  6. 6. “We need to add two years to our basic education. Those who can afford pay up to fourteen years of schooling before university. Thus, their children are getting into the best universities and the best jobs after graduation. I want at least 12 years for our public school children to give them an even chance at succeeding.” -Pres. Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III

  30. 30. TWO PROGRAMS FOR TRANSITION MANAGEMENT Senior HS System Readiness Assessment (1) To determine current absorptive capacity per region of all educational institutions (i.e. ‘supply’), (2) To ascertain current industry & employment demand and anticipate future opportunities (i.e. ‘demand’) (3) and to ensure the SHS system will be instrumental in adequately addressing both.
  31. 31. Modeling Best Practices For Senior High School SY 2012-2013, there are 33 public high schools, public technical-vocational high schools, and higher education institutions (HEIs) that have implemented Grade 11. This is a Research and Design (R&D) program to simulate different aspects of Senior High School in preparation for full nationwide implementation in SY 2016-2017. Modeling programs offered by these schools are based on students’ interests, community needs, and their respective capacities.
  32. 32. NURTURING THE HOLISTICALLY DEVELOPED FILIPINO (COLLEGE AND LIVELIHOOD READINESS, 21ST CENTURY SKILLS) After going through Kindergarten, the enhanced Elementary and Junior High curriculum, and a specialized Senior High program, every K to 12 graduate will be ready to go into different paths – may it be further education, employment, or entrepreneurship. Every graduate will be equipped with: 1.Information, media and technology skills, 2.Learning and innovation skills, 3.Effective communication skills, and 4.Life and career skills.
  33. 33. BENEFITS OF K TO 12 TO INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES • enhanced curriculum will decongest academic workload, give students more time to master competencies and time for extra- curricular activities, thus, allowing for their more holistic development. • competencies and skills relevant to the job market. • better prepared for higher education. • higher wages and/or better prepared to start their own business. Studies in the Philippines have shown that an additional year of schooling increases earnings by 7.5%. • Filipino graduates could be recognized abroad. • K to 12 will contribute to economic growth. Improvements in the quality of education will increase GDP growth by as much as 2%. • A better educated society provides a sound foundation for long-term socio-economic development.
  34. 34. SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL BENEFITS DIFFERENT STUDENTS IN DIFFERENT WAYS. Students who finish high school then work • Better income opportunities; higher income streams • Cost due to delayed employment offset by higher income streams Students who complete 2 years of college or post- secondary • Reduction in cost of schooling with additional 2 years of “free” education Students who complete college • Reduction in college years offsets additional years of schooling • Higher productivity (about 9% income premium) • Higher college completion rates
  35. 35. A full 12 years of basic education will be required for entry into tertiary level education by SY 2018-2019.
  36. 36. FAQs about Senior High School
  37. 37. Who will cover the cost of the additional two years in high school? • Free for those in public schools • Subsidized by the Government for those in the ESC program
  38. 38. What will happen to colleges and universities during the initial nationwide implementation of Senior High School in SY 2016–2017 and SY 2017–2018? To manage the initial implementation of the K to 12 Program and mitigate the expected multi-year low enrolment turnout for colleges, universities, and Technical-Vocational Institutions (TVI) starting SY 2016- 2017, DepEd shall engage in partnerships with them to use their existing facilities and teaching staff. This ensures that during the transition period, the reduction in enrollment in these colleges and universities may be offset.
  39. 39. Where will Senior High School be implemented? Existing public schools may implement Senior High School. DepEd will be in partnerships with CHED, TESDA, and private schools to use their facilities, especially for the transition years. In addition, new standalone Senior High Schools will be built.
  40. 40. How will DepEd recruit enough teachers for SY 2016-2017 onwards? •With the continuous increase of the DepEd budget, more teachers are being hired to fill all necessary gaps in schools. •To aid transition, hiring of: (1) graduates of Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, and other specialists in subjects with a shortage of qualified Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) applicants (2) graduates of Technical-Vocational courses (3) Higher Education Institution faculty (4) Practitioners will be allowed.
  41. 41. What are the guidelines for graduates of Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Engineerin g, and other specialists in subjects with a shortage of qualified Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) applicants? • These graduates will be permitted to teach in their specialized subjects in elementary and secondary education. They must pass the LET within five years after their date of hiring to remain employed full-time. • They will no longer be required to pass the LET if these graduates are willing to teach on a part-time basis.
  42. 42. What are the guidelines for hired technical- vocational course graduates, faculty of Higher Education Institutions, and practitioners? • Graduates of technical-vocational courses must have necessary certification issued by TESDA and undergo training to be administered by DepEd or a Higher Education Institutions (HEI). • Faculty of colleges and universities must be full-time professors and be holders of a relevant Bachelor’s degree. • Faculty of TVIs and HEIs will be given priority in hiring for the transition period. • DepEd and Private Education Institutions may also hire practitioners with expertise in the specialized learning areas offered by the K to 12 Program as part-time teachers.
  43. 43. For Senior High School, what will happen if majority of our students want to specialize in Agriculture and only one is interested to take Mathematics or Business? How will this be accommodated?•This is an extreme situation. •The areas of specialization will be offered according to the resources available in a locality and the needs of students.
  44. 44. How will K to 12 affect the college curriculum? The college General Education Curriculum is being revised. It will have fewer units with the removal of unnecessary remediation as K to 12 graduates adhere to the College Readiness Standards. With K to 12, the college curriculum will comprise of a year’s worth of General Education subjects and at least two years of major subjects.
  45. 45. Will students choose specializations or will this be determined by assessment? • Students will undergo several assessments to determine their interests and strengths. These will include an aptitude test, a career assessment exam, and an occupational interest inventory for high schools, and should help students decide on their specialization. • To help guide students in choosing career tracks they intend to pursue, career advocacy activities will be regularly conducted, which will be supported by career and employment guidance counsellors
  46. 46. I like this program but I’m worried about additional cost to families. How will government respond to this difficulty? As a result of the K to 12 Program particularly the more specialized education in Senior High School, CHED is exploring the possibility of decreasing the number of years of certain degree programs in college.
