In a Viber message, DepEd Spokesperson Michael Poa told reporters that the “review is still ongoing” for the K to 12 basic education curriculum.

DepEd, in a statement dated Jan. 10, said that the is set to conduct the Basic Education Report 2023 (BER) on Jan. 30, 2023.

“The BER 2023 aims to present the state of basic education in the country, and the plans and initiatives of the Department to fulfill its mandate,” DepEd said.

DepEd added that also intends to “provide a broad report about the basic education sector” which will include updates on the ongoing review of the K to 12 curriculum.

“The BER will also launch the education agenda and the new call to action for all Filipinos,” DepEd added.

In September 2022, DepEd said that it has completed the review of the K to 12 curriculum for Kinder to Grade 10.

DepEd also said that the review of the curriculum for the additional two years in the country’s basic education cycle or the Senior High School (SHS) Program started last November.

“By June 2023, we are hoping that we will have finished the review for the K to 12 program,” Poa said.

The K to 12 Program covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic education. It is comprised of six years of primary education, four years of Junior High School (JHS), and two years of SHS.

The K to 12 program aimed to “provide sufficient time for mastery of concepts and skills, develop lifelong learners, and prepare graduates for tertiary education, middle-level skills development, employment, and entrepreneurship.”
