The Philippine government is still having a tough time trying to fully attend to the needs of each and every public school in the country. Dilapidated classrooms, lack of school supplies, ungiven salaries: these are only few of the problems they still face today.
Because of these, I believe the Philippines is not ready for the K-12 system. An extra two years for Senior High will mean more classrooms, more teachers, and more money. If the Philippines cannot handle the educational system now, how much more for the K-12?
