MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) has extended until May 13 the public review of the draft revised curriculum for kindergarten to Grade 10.

A few days after original deadline for public feedback ended on May 3, the DepEd on Friday said has received feedback from 4,843 respondents.

These were composed of 4,499 individuals and 344 organizations, including sectoral groups, professional associations, government agencies, private schools associations, higher education institutions and non-governmental organizations.

“The extension of the public review intends to provide enough time for interested stakeholders to give their feedback on the shaping papers and draft curriculum guides for the Language and Literacy, and Reading learning areas,” it said.

The shaping papers and the draft revised curriculum guides may be accessed at https://bit.ly/CGandShapingPaperPublicReview, while feedback may be submitted through the online survey form at https://bit.ly/Kto10CG.

In the draft general shaping paper, the DepEd identified congestion as a primary issue in the basic education curriculum.

“Results show that only a few teachers reported having adequate time to teach all learning competencies. The percentage varies by learning area, grade level and quarter, but typically fewer than 20 percent of teachers reported having adequate time to teach all the learning competencies assigned to a quarter,” it added.

Some key proposals include a redesigned kindergarten curriculum, merging of Araling Panlipunan and Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health and the removal of a separate mother tongue subject in Grades 1 to 3, and the incorporation of the engineering design process in various learning areas.
