Today, President Benigno "Pnoy" Aquino signed Republic Act no. 10533, the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013. The K to 12 law is
a landmark piece of legislation that institutionalizes 12 years of basic education, making it responsive to global educational standards. The law, which introduces two additional years in secondary education and makes Kindergarten mandatory among five-year olds, is expected to give graduates better choices in the field of work or further education.
