PNoy to finally sign ‘K-12’ law

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 01:45pm

President Aquino is expected to sign into law on Wednesday the 
Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 that officially mandates  Kindergarten and a 12-year basic education curriculum in the country  at par with international standards, Education Secretary Armin Luistro  announced Tuesday. 

The President will sign what is otherwise known as the “K to 12”  (Kindergarten to Grade 12) law three months since the bill mandating  this educational reform was passed by Congress, said Luistro as he faced reporters at the end of DepEd’s election.

The Senate and the House of Representatives reconciled its respective versions and approved the bicameral version  of the K to 12 bill during its session on February 6, just before it went on recess to give way to the election campaign.
