Review and Related Literature

Using k-12 programs grading system as a standard, the teachers dignity coalition (TDC) gives a
government a B for its performance showed during the first week of the school year, which is
also contained DepEd order no. 31, s. 2012, B stands for Beginning which has numeric
equivalent of 74% and below. Other marks are D for Developing; AP for Approaching
Proficiency; P for Proficient; and A for Advanced. The TDC based its rating on the problems
surfaced during the first week of classes which includes the shortage in teachers, seats,
classrooms, toilets and other facilities. The group also pointed out that instructional materials
for K-12 curriculum which will be taught in grade 1 and grade 7 (first year junior high school) are
not readily available. And the worst, according to TDC is the governments disregard to the
welfare of teachers when the hired the kinder teachers in contractual terms and will be paid
P3000 monthly for the special job. The group again asked malacanang to consider
postponement of the program and call for a wider dialogue, information dissemination or even
national debate. The group instead, challenged President Aquino to put necessary funds to
resolve the shortages in school inputs, most of them are actually backlogs of the past
administrations.

1. Teachers should plan a better and more lesson techniques that they think are more efficient
and that their students may learn faster.
2. Teachers should also let their students speak out their opinions in teaching for them to
know what is better in teaching.
