MANILA, Philippines — Half or 50 percent of Filipinos are dissatisfied with the K to 12 education system in the country, the  Social Weather Stations (SWS) reported Thursday.

The 50 percent rate was a combination of respondents who said they were “very dissatisfied” and “somewhat dissatisfied” at 37 and 13 percent.


Meanwhile, survey results showed only 39 percent of 1,500 adult respondents said they were satisfied.


16 percent were “very satisfied” and 23 percent “somewhat satisfied” with the basic education program.
