Abstract:

This Paper was presented on the 2nd Annual Conference of the Society for the Philosophical Study of Education-Philippines, March 1, 2014, held at Paulino Cayco Hall, Arellano University, Philippines. The paper presents the fears and loopholes of the K-12 system and its implementation in the context of the Philippines. Drawing on the current discourse, studies and loud views, the author concludes that if the goal is to improve the nation’s student achievement then the real solution is improving the quality of teachers because “Students don't fail, teachers do.”
