K-12 curriculum too congested – DepEd

K-12 curriculum too congested

Department of Education Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan said the K to 12 curriculum was too ‘congested’.

This was one of the issues brought by DepEd as it assess basic education curriculum under the launched Basic Education Development Plan 2030.

Malaluan said BEDP 2030 goal is to solve the problem on having a quality education.

“Paano i-address ang usapin ng kalidad ng edukasyon at mahalaga diyan ‘yung pagrepaso at pag-review natin ng curriculum, ‘yung pagsasanay ng ating mga guro, ‘yung pagsasaayos ng learning resources, at ‘yung pag-e-ensure na ‘yung ating mga mag-aaral, sinasabi nating resilient at tsaka mataas ‘yung well-being nila,” he said.

“Pero doon sa usapin ng curriculum, nakita natin sa ating review na ‘yung ating K to 12 curriculum ay congested o masyadong masikip. Masyado tayong maraming gustong ituro sa ating mga mag-aaral at kailangan nating i-streamline ito,” he added.

Education Secretary Leonor Briones earlier said BEDP 2030 was created to address the root cause of problems on quality, close the access gaps, sustain and enhance relevant programs, and introduce innovations in education.
