DepEd revises curriculum for school year 2020-2021

AMID the Covid-19 pandemic, the Department of Education (DepEd) decided to streamline its learning competencies for school year 2020-2021.

Salustiano Jimenez, DepEd 7 Director, said the DepEd central office, with the consultation of all the bureau directors and the regional directors, decided to come up with the Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELC) to be developed among the learners in the coming school year.

Jimenez said: “We saw that among all subject areas, there are competencies that can be developed while doing the MELC. We give more focus on the MELC.”

Learning competencies, according to DepEd, refer to “the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes that students need to demonstrate in every lesson and/or learning activity.”

Jimenez said in order to guide DepEd on how to continue with education while taking into consideration the safety and health of the learners, teachers and their personnel, they developed the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP).

He said as part of DepEd’s LCP, the K to 12 curriculum is streamlined to 5,689 MELCs from the original 14,171 MELCs or is reduced by 60 percent.

He said: “Of course it does not mean that learners are learning less. The other competencies are subsumed in the most essential learning competencies. Possibly fewer hours if in school but more activities at home.”

He also said that for private schools, it does not follow that if using online or blended mode of learning, the tuition will be discounted.

He said under the “Sulong EduKalidad,” DepEd’s battle cry moving forward, the K to 12 curriculum review and update is one of its reform areas.

He said: “That’s what we’re prioritizing now amid this crisis. We tried to find a solution that’s suitable for these challenging times. It would be difficult for us to go all the way since we’ll be using different modalities in the delivery of instructions and lessons.”

DepEd has announced that classes for school year 2020-2021 will start on August 24, but students do not have to report physically.

While the streamlined curriculum will be used this school year, Jimenez said this will still be subject for review in the coming years. (WBS)

会。梅亚德是执政党革命制度党(PRI)的候选人。他主要的竞争对手是强硬的左翼领导人安德烈斯曼努埃尔洛佩斯奥夫拉多尔(Andrés Manuel López Obrador)——可以感召人群的激情演说家。梅亚德需要克服很多问题:在去年1月一夜间把油价上调20%、引发通胀飙升后,他必须说服选民自己仍然是可以信任的。他还必须证明自己是个有主见的人,而不仅仅是这届不受欢迎的政府的傀儡——在遏制猖獗的腐败和犯罪行为方面,这届政府极为失败。但是凭借强大的PRI拉票机器,他可能势不可挡。在墨西哥只有一轮选举的体制下,30%的选票可能就足以让他当选总统了。
