Our K-12 Program
For the past years, educational institutions and experts have been developing programs to ensure wide distribution of formal education. A number of programs have been launched by our government and some schools, colleges and universities to address the increasing number of students who are out-of-school due to a number of reasons, some of which are brought about by absentee parenthood.
According to our research and survey, the recent statistics shows that the enrollment in state schools in ltaly for Filipinos is increasing every year because of family petition. However, it also shows a significant number of enrollees who are not able to finish a certain level per year; they tend to drop-out in the middle or at the end of the school year. Performance indicators show that about 22 percent of enrollees in school year 20015– 2016 did not complete their year level. Drop out rate in the same school year is 6 percent.
