A busy week! Tomorrow will be the start of School Year 2012-2013 to most moms and students.. some schools, specially public schools already started with the school year last June 4.

And why is there a need for such change on our current education system? What is wrong with our current education program?
The adoption of the program is in response to the need to improve the competitiveness of our country’s graduates as the ten-year basic education cycle is seen as inadequate for work and higher education. In fact, overseas Filipino workers are not automatically recognized as professionals in other countries that view the ten-year education program as insufficient. The Philippines is the only country in Asia and is one of only three countries in the world with a ten-year basic education cycle.
