SC junks plea for oral arguments on K to 12

THE Supreme Court denied Tuesday various groups and individuals' request to conduct oral arguments on K to 12.

In a decision released in Baguio City on Tuesday, the magistrates junked the appeal of various petitioners, including Council of Teachers and Staff of Colleges and Universities of the Philippines to conduct oral arguments on K to 12.

The court instead directed all the parties to submit a memoranda within a non-extendible period within 20 days.

"The court required the parties to submit memoranda within a non-extendible period of 20 days from notice, with an instruction to the clerk of court to serve notice personally," the decision read.

Other petitioners directed to file their memoranda were Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, Eduardo Alicias, Richard Troy Colmenares, Representative Antonio Tinio and Ma. Dolores Brillantes.

The SC earlier junked the petitioners' appeal for temporary restraining order directed on the implementation of additional 2 years in secondary education. The court however clarified that it has not decided on the legalities of K to 12 yet. (Sunnex)
