Claim: Sara Duterte to turn K-12 to K-14, push for ROTC, mandatory military service without pay
Rating: PARTLY FALSE
This post, shared with us through the tipline, says that presumptive Vice President-elect Sara Duterte is pushing to add two years to the K-12 program, ROTC, and two more years of mandatory service in the AFP without pay.
This is partly false.
Duterte has expressed interest in pushing for mandatory service in the Armed Forces of the Philippines, but has said that it will be with a subsidy (https://www.philstar.com/…/if-she-wins-vp-sara-duterte…).
She has yet to concretely confirm a return of ROTC even as she has been given the presumptive seat of new Department of Education secretary under the new administration (https://www.pna.gov.ph/index.php/articles/1174558).
As for the K-12 to K-14+ change, all Duterte has officially said is that there will potentially be a review of the K-12 program (https://www.philstar.com/…/sara-duterte-says-country…).
While the post may potentially prove true in the future, to date, it is not confirmed.
