HINDI tumutugon ang K-12 Program ng Department of Education sa pakay nitong solusyonan ang kawalan ng trabaho sa bansa.
Ayon kay ACT Teachers Party-list Rep. France Castro kailangan rebisahin ang batas na sumasaklaw sa gitna ng mga isyung bumabalot sa sistema ng edukasyon.
“The solon said the investigation is long overdue and is needed to look into the roots of the issues, including the chronic underfunding for the requirements of basic education, and immediately address them,” ani Castro.
“The law mandated basic education to encompass one year of kindergarten education, six years of elementary education, and six years of secondary education, which includes four years of junior high school and two years of senior high school without addressing perennial problems already being faced by teachers and students before the enhanced basic education program,” paliwanag ni Castro.
Aniya ang high school ay ginawaang anim na taon upang bigyang solusyon ang kawalan ng trabaho sa bansa pero hindi ito nangyari.
Ayon kay Castro, dumami nga ang skilled workers pero wala namang napapasukang trabaho.
“We see the effects of having a pool of skilled laborers with a government that does not provide enough opportunities for its people for decent jobs with decent salaries. They are forced to risk their lives away from their families and serve in foreign countries as cheap laborers and are susceptible to discrimination,” ani Castro.
