Atty. M.C. Tonisito Umali, DepEd assistant secretary for Legal and Legislative Affairs will talk on "The rational for the K-12 curriculum and DepEd's implementation program."

Luis Prudencio Salamat, grade school principal of PAREF Southridge School, and Rev. Fr.

Fr. de Villa, also the vice president of the Catholic Association of the Philippines, will further discuss how their school has developed its curriculum for the purpose of providing high school graudates with employable skills, as envisioned by DepEd.
