"1.2M Pirma Laban sa Programang K to 12" is the commitment of parents, teachers, students, school staff and administration, workers, other organizations and alliances, and individuals who opposes its implementation.
K to 12 is being implemented without a legal basis. Beyond the lack of a legal basis, K to 12 must be opposed on the following primary unities—
1. Additional two years in basic education means that parents have to raise no less than P25, 000 to cover transportation, food, school projects and other expenses.
2. K to 12 is a neoliberal policy to further cheapen wage and intensify labor contractualization
3. K to 12 is designed to meet the international demands for labor-export.
4. That K to 12 is a not a solution to the perennial dismal state of education in the country but will further worsen it due to the overwhelming shortages brought about by insufficient government funding. It will justify state abandonment of education and compel SUCs to generate income through tuition and other fees increase.
