The K to 12 new educational curriculum for high school was defended here by stakeholders even as
there continues to be a sector among parents who are opposed to it because two more years will
entail time and money spent for their children’s schooling.
Under the K to 12 scheme, the child will start in
Kindergarten, six years in the elementary school, plus four
years in junior high school, plus two years in senior high
school, that makes 12 years before a student gets to college.
Speaking at CROSS TALK over DYEM FM’S BAI
RADIO, Division Supt
Ssalustiano Jimenez said that
the last two senior years in
high school will mean a lot
because majority of our high
school grduatres do not proceed
The two senior high
school years will be skillis
training intensive in
cooeperation with many line
agencies. This will equip the
students with emplyable skills
in technical vocational livelihood;
sports; arts and design
Under vocation skills
training for senior high include:
so many employable
skills as food and beverages,
waiters, hotel, housekeeping,
bread and pastry. Hair
dressing, massaging, dress
making and the so many like
jobs which can be used immediately
after high school...
At no time in our nation’s political history than
today has an administration been perceived
to be MOST SERIOUS in going after grafters
in government. Here comes another COA report
of P670Million in apparently stolen funds from
PDAF going to the usual template of corruption: to
fake NGOs and fake beneficiaries. More legislators
are involved and will have to be prosecuted before
the filing of certificates of candidacies in October
for the May 2016 elections. Lest they get back into
We therefore urge the people to retain the team
that is going after corrupt public officials. Even if
PNOY favors his allies, at least he is starting with his
political enemies. If PNOY fails to go after his corrupt
allies, then the people will, eventually. But let PNOY
continue his momentum of “walang corrupt” while
he is still on the ground.
If we cut the umbilical cord that is going after
corruption today in our government, we will never
have another chance of going after the vultures who
have directly impoverished this nation. And we will
never be able to formulate new anti-corruption policies.
In the book of Habbakuk, God replied to the
complainants not to worry because in due time, God
will get back at the corrupt and violent. God is never
late, the book of Habbakuk further states.
Although President Aquino was
not specific about his choice for
president, our fearless forecast
for the presidential race of 2016 is that the Liberal administration party
will proclaim Mar Roxas for president
and Grace Poe for vice president or vice
versa as the official tandem of the administration
party but on one condition,
that VP Binay will not be there to grab
it. But like the weather, we can be wrong.
The Liberal party’s focus at this time
is to block the candidacy of vice pres
Binay for president, as they said, at all
cost. Here at home, the Liberal party in
Negros Oriental might face a major overhaul
in order to give the local leadership
a breather as to whether or not, he
or she still has the support of the people.
If none, then the invitation of the
governor to join the Liberal party might
not be a far possibility.
But let’s remember that Cong.George
Arnaiz is coming back to capitol running.
Being familiar with the terrain, and with

Catholic Schools must be... We have to state
importance of a Catholic School for the
future of the Church and
Society. We have to be
reminded that Catholic
Schools should provide
“an education that no
other school can supply—
