Netizens divided over K-to-12 suspension

02:15 AM March 13, 2015

MANILA, Philippines — A year ahead of the full implementation of the landmark K-to-12 program in the Philippines, various groups representing the students, teachers and parents have called for its suspension.

Set to be fully implemented in 2016, the K-to-12 program makes the 12-year basic education program mandatory. The program requires a year of kindergarten, six years of elementary school, four years of junior high school, and two years of senior high school.

On Thursday, the groups asked the Supreme Court to strike down Republic Act (RA) No. 10533, also known as the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013.
