Aquino touts K to 12 program in final SONA

July 28, 2015, 2:03p.m. - FILIPINOS will be able to compete with the rest of the world under the K to 12 program that will add two years to basic education, President Benigno Aquino III said in his sixth and final State of the Nation Address (SONA) last July 27 at the Batasang Pambansa complex in Quezon City.

Aquino said the K to 12 program would boost the credentials of Filipinos applying for jobs abroad, pointing out that at present, the competence of Filipino workers abroad was being questioned. Some have in fact been demoted by their employers, he said.
