To enjoy CHEd scholarship teachers to spend first

Its advocates aver that the main goal of the K-to-12 program is global competitiveness. The inclusion of skills training in the proposed curriculum belies this. It now appears to me that employability is the insidious purpose of K-to-12, on the assumption that high school dropouts need to land a job when they cannot proceed to college. If this is so, why overhaul a good system that has been there for almost a century to accommodate a segment of our student population that cannot enter higher education?

Beg, steal, or borrow

I myself am not a great fan of K to 12. I know it’s now law and is on its second year. The Department of Education says the implementation is getting better, as schools get to iron out the kinks of last year. But whether it is or not, I don’t know that the program will really make a huge dent in the huge problem of education.
