K to 12 is an organizational and administrative operation to bring Philippine secondary education up to par with the rest of the world. It is the most comprehensive educational reform of secondary education in the Philippines in many decades. It is a necessary reform, but it is not sufficient to lift the quality of Philippine education to international standards, since it does not adequately address the major factors that determine the quality of education: teaching and learning.

Last October 14, 2015, the Communication Foundation for Asia held “The Challenges of K-12” workshop that aimed to lift the quality of teaching & learning in our schools. Attending the workshop were educators and school administrators from across the Philippines.
