Twenty five million students from Day Care Centers to Elementary and High Schools will enter the school as formal opening class in the Philippines. Expect traffic in the roads, in malls and in schools. This also mark the first year for K-12 program of the Department of Education that include the controversial Senior High School. Previously, after graduation in 4th Year in High School, students immediately enter college and universities. That is not possible now. Completers of Junior High School must enroll to Senior high. Good luck to all students; goodluck to all parents.

@ilocosboy How old will students be when they graduate now? 18? (thinking your system counts what we call middle school as part of high school)

While we were on our way home from our early morning and sunrise watch, we saw parents with their children waiting for a ride at a little past six.
