Gatchalian wants focus on Math, Reading, K to 12 program too overcrowded

Gatchalian wants focus on Math, Reading, K to 12 program too overcrowded

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian pushed for more focus on students’ abilities to read and deal with numbers.

Gatchalian said that K to 12 curriculum “needs decongesting” as it requires students to study too many competencies, affecting their capability to master basic abilities.

He raised this concern as the incoming administration said it would review the K to 12 program.

The senator said there is a need to refine the curriculum for Kindergarten to Grade 3 learners.

He also pointed to international assessments that revealed that the PH learners are struggling in the critical learning areas of Math and Reading.

Gatchalian believe this would lead to “negative and long-term” consequences for their future and the country.

  1. hndi lang sana sa elementarya ang tutukan bagkus pti sa junior high hndi lahat ng promoted ay marurunong . bago sana magpasukan may assessment ulet pra makita san dapat matutukan ung mga students .. sana wala na ding mass promoting para matuto din sila mag sunog ng kilay

  2. alisin ang napakaraming learning competencies na hindi naman matutunan lahat ng mga bata, nag ooverlap na ang ibang learning competencies at ang mga content ay obsolete na, need na ma upgrade ang mga content at dapat ang learning comptencies ay industry – based, bawasan ito, tutukan lang ang mga importante para magkaroon ng mastery of learning.
    ibalik ang dating patakaran na walang mass promotion, kailangan ipakita ng mga bata ang kanilang output, para matuto silang magstrive sa pag aaral.

  3. revisit ang K – 12 lahat ng learning areas wag lng math. tanggalin ung spriral sa math at science. half bake ang learning ng mga bata
