K to 12 R.A. 10533 and Relevant Education Policies
A complete framework of republic act number 10533 otherwise known as the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013, this book provides, in a comparative manner, how this law affects previous education policies and laws pertaining to educational institutions and their academic personnel. It provides a panoramic view of the enhanced basic education system from Kindergarten to Grade 12, and the emphasis of the State on its importance by making it compulsory. It also lays down a suitable guide for private educational institutions during the transition contemplated by this law.
Part of the technical working group that drafted the K to 12 bills, and a resource person at the K to 12 Steering Community, Atty. Joseph Noel M. Estrada explains the legal implications, transition issues, and challenges of the k to 12 Program. On the other hand, Atty. Kristjan Vicente T. Gargantiel, a seasoned legal consultant of several divisions of Schools of the Department of Education, provides invaluable inputs in the implementation of K to 12. K to 12: -R.A. No. 10533 and Relevant Education Policies is a rich source of fresh knowledge and analysis of education principles.
