This report presents an in-depth analysis of the Philippines' basic education system, focusing on the K to 12 Program initiated in 2012-2013 and the Alternative Learning Systems (ALS) Program. It highlights the efforts to align with global standards, enhance higher education preparedness, and address the challenges of providing accessible education to all. The report also examines the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on student enrollment and learning outcomes, particularly the decline in elementary level participation and the alarming rise in 'learning poverty'.
