Usec. Quijano: K to 12 Program envisions "holistic graduates"
DepEd Usec. Youlanda Quijano said that "the K to 12 seeks to holistically develop the students and prepare them to cope with the challenges in the 21st century. So, we could expect of holistic graduates in 2025".
Usec. Quijano said, "....under the K to 12, they are integrating into the school curriculum several key areas that will equip students with innovative skills, information media, effective communication skills and sound carrer development". In my idea, if these students could master those basic competencies that they really need, the K to 12 curriculum will be producing skillfully mastered and globally competitive graduates. And by that time with their legal age undoubtedly they will be ready to find and land a job; concurrently, it can definitely minimize child labor .
With my open mind, I agree implementing this new K to 12 curriculum.
