  • Washington Accord recognizes the substantial equivalency of programs and recommends that graduates of programs accredited be recognized by the other bodies as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering.the Accord applies only to accredited programs, not to all programs within a member country. Even if we finally become a member, we still have to accredit undergraduate engineering programs. Bologna ProcessDefined standard degree requirements, standard grading scale, common transcript, quality-assurance checks to ensure common practices and quality standards.The agreement promises to simplify degree qualifications and nomenclatures, offer more educational choice and mobility in Europe. APEC Trade Agreement: Bogor Declaration and Osaka Action PlanMutual recognition of professional qualifications between professional bodies or government Increased levels of exchanges of students, staff and researchers.Enhancement of the capacity and opportunities for the movement among member economies of people who have skills Human resources development activities must facilitate the movement and interaction of qualified personsUNESCO Education For All Plan of ActionUniversal functional literacyUniversal coverage of quality Early childhood education for all 3-5 year-old childrenUniversal school participation and total elimination of drop-outs and repetition form Grades I-IIIUniversal completion of the full cycle of basic education schooling with satisfactory achievement levelsExpand the coverage of the Basic Literacy Program for the 16 year-old and above and the Alternative Learning SystemCommitment of all Philippine communities to the attainment of Basic Education competencies for all.
  • Ubd – emphasis is on “backward design”, the practice of looking at the outcomes in order to design curriculum units, performance assessments, and classroom instruction. - to facilitate student understanding, teachers must explain the “big ideas” and essential questions as well as the requirements and evaluative criteria at the start of the class but this method only works for some topics. - students being able to explain, interpret, apply, have perspective, empathize and have self-knowledge.
  • CMO No. 59, s. 1996 – or the New General Education Curriculum (GEC)CMO No. 4, s. 1997 – Guidelines for Implementation of CMO No. 59 s. 1996. GEC-A and GEC-B.
  • RSEC – Revised Secondary Education Curriculum
  • Grade 7 – Integrated Science: a combined study of all areas of the sciences or the introduction of some areas in sciences. Grade 8 – Biology: natural science concerned with the study of life and living organismsGrade 9 – Chemistry: science of matter, especially its properties, structure, composition, behavior, reactions, interactions and changes.Grade 10 – Physics: natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through spacetime.
  • Grades 7 to 9 – deals with Integrated Science. Different subject areas in biology, chemistry and physics were stretched. Some subject areas were deleted (e.g. Sun-Moon-Earth system, periodic table, balance of nature etc.)Grade 10 - is still Physics. With specializations or electives in biology and chemistry.
  • What is their incentive if they decide to enter Grade 11?Classrooom? Faculty to teach the additional grade levels?
  • Solution to the 2 years added: Put in place Career Academies.
  • This can be done also in collaboration with private enterprises (thru MOAs). The CA become automatic placement centers. Part of the two year training can include an immersion in the actual job sites. At the end of the two-year period, they are guaranteed a place/job in these private enterprises that they have concluded their interships.

Challenges and Responses in the Implementation of the K to 12 Challenges and Responses in the Implementation of the K to 12 Presentation Transcript

  • Challenges and responses in the implementation of k to 12
    Fr. Joel E. Tabora, SJ
  • Shortcuts in terminology
    K to12
    Present 10
    Add Kindergarten (K)
    Add years 11, 12 = “Career Academy” (2)
    Pre-College
    Senior High School
    Junior High School
    K+6+4+2 = K to 12
    BEC – Basic Education Curriculum
    GEC – General Education Curriculum
  • Reasons for Education Reform
    PH having the shortest education cycle in the world (14 years 6+4+4)
    Washington Accord for Engineering – at least 16 years
    Bologna Process for accountants, pharmacists, Physical Therapists – 15 years
    APEC Trade Agreement – deadline in 2020
    For increased mobility of professionals
    Affects individuals and nations
    UNESCO Education For All Plan – deadline in 2015
    Universal functional literacy
    Universal completion of the full cycle of basic education
  • Academic deficiencies
    Academic Deficiencies
    English
    Mathematics
    Science
    Filipino
    Formation
    Catholic Educational Mission Deficiency
    Recognition
    Loss of respect
    Loss of status/leadership
    Loss of income
  • Philippine basic education curriculum (BEC)
    National Elementary School Curriculum
    1984 to 2002
    New Secondary Education Curriculum
    1991-2002
    Revised Basic Education Curriculum 2002
    Secondary Education Curriculum -Understanding by Design Model 2010
  • Issues with present BEC
    Insufficient mastery of basic competencies is common due to a congested curriculum. The 12 year curriculum is being delivered in 10 years.
    High school graduates are younger than 18 years old and lack basic competencies and maturity. They cannot legally enter into contracts and are not emotionally mature for entrepreneurship / employment.
    Other countries view the 10-year education cycle as insufficient.
  • General education curriculum (GEC)
    GEC-A (63 units for humanities, social sciences and communications students)
    GEC-B (51 units for non-HUSOCOM students)
  • Issues with present GEC
    Heavier semestral load of students
    No room for formation subjects
    Increasing professional subjects
    The variations in laboratory requirements pose practical problems for smaller colleges with just enough laboratories
    Students not seeing the relevance of GEC subjects
    Since only professional courses that need international accreditation are under the Washington and Bologna Accord, some courses should have lesser subjects.
  • The Challenge
    Enhanced 10
    Lessen drop outs
    Decongest to improve learning
    RBEC
    Revised Basic Education Curriculum focused on just
    English
    Pilipino
    Mathematics
    Science
    Makabayan
    But it did not “decongest” the curriculum
  • The Challenge
    Challenge for curriculum designers based on real feedback
    Don’t just push up
    Reduce – more time for independent work and study
  • K to 12 Model developed by deped
    A Comparative Example: Science Conceptual Matrix

    K to 12 Curriculum for Science Grades 7-12
  • Phases of Implementation
    Universal kindergarten will be offered starting SY 2011-2012.
    DepEdwill begin unclogging the basic education curriculum in SY 2012-2013.
    The enhanced 12-year curriculum will be implemented starting with incoming Grade 1 students of SY 2012-2013.
    Incoming freshmen of SY 2012-2013 will be the first beneficiary of a free Senior High School education that will be made available by DepEd in public schools beginning SY 2016-2017. Electives to be offered in Senior HS (arts, music, tech-voch..etc)

  • Workplan of Deped Steering committee for transition (September 5, 2011)
  • Transition scheme for k to 12
  • Problems with transition scheme
    Too late to make transition compulsory.
    Difficulty to find students who will volunteer to go through Grades 11 and 12. Since this will be in selected pilot schools, they can actually opt to go to College. Why then would they enter a shady Grade 11?
    Official curriculum is not yet finalized. It is expected on November, but this may be too late to train teachers.
  • Problems with transition scheme
    Logistical problems for administrators.
    Textbooks and other materials are not yet developed and printed for Grades 11 and 12.
    Increased drop-outs due to perceived irrelevance of going to Grades 11 and 12.
  • Our proposal
    Implement K to 12 on our own. Essentially, K to 12 is an addition of 2 years in Basic Education.
    We plan for the content of K to 12 on our own.
    We accept that performance standards are based on the:
    Content of RBEC in 10 years
    Set of College competencies now being articulated by CHED.
    Competencies required for specific work.
  • Our proposal
    Basically, Br. Armin Luistro, FSC has encouraged CEAP and COCOPEA schools to pilot K to 12 even without legislation, based on global demand.
  • Our proposal
  • Career Academy
    Not just more high school
    Not just pre-college
    Sui generis – the last step in basic education
    Pupils in 17th and 18th years of life
    Atmosphere of challenge and respect
  • Choose careers with educational implication
    Some need two years (Pre-work stream)
    Some need two years plus college (Pre-college stream)
    “Minus 2” or “Plus 2”
    Career Academy
  • Career Academy
    “It provides the professional and human education necessary for the practice of chosen careers either immediately after graduation or after further tertiary education, depending on the career chosen”
    Completion is attested to by a certificate or diploma issued by or with permission of the DepEd
  • Career Academy
    Career Tracks
    Achievement tests advisory
    Tracks chosen by the pupils and their parents
    Preparation for life
    Work
    Marriage life
    Atmosphere: Young adults
  • Schools with grades 11 and 12 curriculum developed
    Ateneo de Naga University
    Career Academy for Entrepreneurship Program
    San Carlos University
  • An Example: Career Academy for travel and tourism (Work stream)
    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Certificate of Achievement in Travel and Tourism is a two-year Career Academy program. This program will allow students to exit with knowledge and job skills necessary to qualify for immediate employment in a travel agency, tour company, or airline customer service position, or to continue on to fulfil their bachelor's degree requirements.
  • An Example: Career Academy for travel and tourism (Work stream)
    Jesuit Core Courses – 12 units
    General Education – 24 units
    Career Specialization Courses – 24 units
    Career Skills Development Courses – 10 units

  • Impelled by the catholic educational mission
    Decide to implement K to 12
    Work together. Share. Inform. Stay informed.
    Enhance Basic Education
    To prepare for Work
    To prepare for College
    Contribute to helpful policy formulation
  • DaghanGsalamat!
  • What to gain from the k to 12?
    Facilitate an accelerated economic growth.
    Facilitate mutual recognition of Filipino graduates and professionals in other countries.
    A better educated society provides a sound foundation for long-term socio-economic development.
    Several studies have shown that the improvements in the quality of education will increase GDP growth by as much as 2%. Studies in the UK, India and US show that additional years of schooling also have positive overall impact on society.
  • What to gain from career academies?
    Courses in academic subjects include material specifically related to the academy’s career theme, which makes them more interesting.
    Student’s interest is further aroused by immediate connections between the program and the real world.
    Adults working in the field serve as mentors for students, introducing them to settings in which they might work and helping them plan their careers.
  • What to gain from career academies?
    Career Academy approach is essentially flexible and adaptable to local needs, capacities and circumstances, rather than rigid and prescriptive, demonstrating that the approach can work in a wide variety of school and community settings.
    Career Academies would increase the likelihood of students graduating on time. CA will also increase vocational course-taking for these students without reducing their likelihood of completing a basic core academic curriculum.
  • Challenge to implement k to 12 in CEAP schools
    With existing colleges or high schools
    Stand alone
    Minus 2 would be attractive to many
    Work would allow them
    To help their families
    To earn their way through college
  • Challenge to implement k to 12 in CEAP schools
    Plus 2 ensures better college experience
    Better Tertiary-Level General Education
    Better Professional Training
    Will foster learning beyond the four walls of the classroom. Not just theory but applied knowledge.
    Develop K to 12 curriculum in Basic Education
