The Department of Education (DepEd) plan to extend the basic education course by two years is set to take off next school year with new curricula developed for Grade 1 and 1st Year High School in implementation of the K+12 (Kindergarten plus 12 years) program. K+12 aims to raise the country’s basic education course to world standards and produce high school graduates ready to be employed even without a college degree. The DepEd started the program with a kindergarten curriculum this year, reaching out to 5-year-olds to prepare them for entering the grades and curbing the early dropout rate. “Voluntary kindergarten was introduced this school year to lay the groundwork for universal kindergarten in subsequent years.
