Stop k to 12

Parents, teachers and students of the Manila Science High School on Monday urged the Supreme Court to rule on the petition that sought to nullify the K to 12 program of the Department of Education that added two more years to the country’s 10-year basic education system.

In an urgent motion, the petitioners through their legal counsel Atty. Severo Brilliantes said the high court should resolve their petition which was filed last June 2015 seeking to stop the implementation of Republic Act 10533 or the Enhanced Basic Education Act.

“After more than nine months from the filing of the instant petition last June 23, 2015, the Honorable Court finally issued a resolution last April 5, 2016 giving due course to their said petition and for the petitioners to submit their Memorandum. It is however almost a year now since the petitioners filed their said Memorandum last May 2, 2016. Most sadly, no judgment has yet been rendered by the Honorable Court on their said petition,” the petitioners lamented.

While they understand the heavy workload of the justices, petitioners said this case will affect the fate of millions of students who were affected by the implementation of the K to 12 program.
