Summer is over now, and classes will start soon here in the Philippines. The government has been talking about adding another year in school (7th grade)- this has been the talk for months now… But I strongly disagree with this plan; it is just a waste of time, effort and money. It only adds to the already heavy burden of the parents and their children. But the government thinks that in order to give students better education- a quality education; they should spend more years in school, so it should be added. If there is something lacking, it’s not the years in school; but the teachers, the facilities, a school itself. They should spend more time in providing the students facilities, buildings for schools, CRs too… No matter how long the kids stay in school, if the facilities don’t improve, then it’s quite useless.Everyone should do their best, give effort, not only the government but the teachers, students and parents,too...everyone.
