Through a Facebook post, Robredo herself has clarified the issue.

“Hindi totoong pinadadagdagan ni VP Leni Robredo ang mga taon sa K-12 program,” it read in the Facebook post.

“Suportado ng Bise Presidente kung sakaling magkaroon ng review ng nasabing programa. Binibigyang-diin niya na kailangang siguraduhin na may tamang facilities at equipment ang mga specialized tracks, para mas maging madali ang pagtuturo nito at matiyak ang kahandaang makapagtrabaho ng mga mag-aaral sa kanilang pagtatapos,” it added.

In a report by CNN Philippines, Robredo said that she is open to reviewing the K-12 program to determine the issues following the implementation.

“May mga nakita kaming iba, halimbawa, electronics, nagtuturo ng electronics, pero walang gamit, walang hands on. So ‘pag ganun ‘yung kakulangan, talagang mahihirapan maghanap ng trabaho kasi hindi handa,” Robredo said.
