Youth groups, together with students and parents, held a noise barrage in front of Krus na Ligas High School protesting the implementation of the K to 12 program. Groups facilitated petition signings and went to different high schools across Diliman to explain the need to oppose the said program.
The Stop K to 12 Alliance believes that it will only worsen the crises of Philippine education as it promotes colonial learning and labor export policy. In addition, the current number of schools, teachers and facilities will not be able to accommodate all students by the time the program is in full implementation.
Groups are organizing series of activities to register the demand to stop K to 12 program and to challenge the Aquino administration to give the Filipino youth accessible and quality education, especially in light of the coming State of the Nation Address to be delivered on July 27.
