K to 12 Plus Projects meets with HEIs for proposal to amend EO 285

The K to 12 Plus Project and the PCCI Human Resources Development Foundation (PCCI HRDF) met with the Commission on Higher Education  (CHED) and other Higher Education providers last August 9 to discuss what further amendments they can propose to improve the EO 285 or The Guidelines Governing the Entry and Stay of Foreign Students in the Philippines.

The focus group discussion which was headed by K to 12 Plus Project’s STE Ryan Evangelista first reviewed the position paper for the EO and later commented on the proposed CMOs of CHED.

The meeting which was held in Microtel Wyndham in Commonwealth, Quezon City was attended by representatives from Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC), Jose Rizal University (JRU), and De La Salle University (DLSU).

Representatives from Coordinating Council of Private Educational. Associations (COCOPEA), and Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU) also actively participated in the group discussion.

The group will again meet in September, this time including relevant agencies whose concern is related with foreign students.
