Marcos demands to review K-12 curriculum to address job mismatch
President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. emphasized the need to review the education curriculum to enhance the skills of students.
Marcos said that basic education skills and knowledge must be improved to address job mismatch.
“That is why we have to look at the curriculum as well. Not only of TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority), but also even our diploma courses,” he said.
“We’re developing or helping universities develop this system of micro-credentialing because technology is changing very fast. There is a need for workers to update themselves, to reskill or upskill,” he said.
Pascual also suggested that Filipino teachers be sent abroad for training.
“Vietnam, for example, sends teachers to the United States and Europe for advanced studies,” he said
