Rhetorical Pattern: Argumentative Essay

Purpose: To argue with people against K-12
Audience: Parents and students
Role: Researcher, one who wants people to be also pro K-12
Thesis Statement: Although adding 2 more years to the basic 10 year education system of the Philippines will cost the poorest Filipinos, imposing the 12 year education plan will give more job opportunities to students, make more globally competitive students and maximize their time on choosing their career base on ability. Outline:

I. Introduction:
A. The total percentage of college students who graduated in the Philippines in the year 2005 which are unemployed. B. The background of K-12 education plan.
C. Although adding 2 more years to the basic 10 year education system of the Philippines will cost the poorest Filipinos, imposing the 12 year education plan will give more job opportunities to students, make more globally competitive students and maximize their time on choosing their career base on ability. II. Body: Opposition

A. Allowable Points
1. K-12 will cost the poorest Filipinos.
2. K-12 will add burden to teachers.
3. K-12 will be too much for the budget of the government B. Reply to Unallowable Points
1. K-12 will give more job opportunities to high school graduates. 2. K-12 will make more globally competitive Filipino students. 3. K-12 will maximize their time on choosing their career base on their ability. III. Body: Position

A. Proof that K-12 will give more job opportunities to high school graduates. 1. Adding of 2 more years to the 10 year education system of the Philippines will make a student graduate at the age of 18. Thus, making the high school graduates to get job right after high school. 2. In other countries, college students graduate at the age of 22 or older, making the age required for jobs to be at 22 or older. Thus making our college graduates who hoped to work in other countries be not accepted. B. Proof that K-12 will make more globally competitive Filipino students. 1. Students will reach the level of education of other countries (e.g. Japan, South Korea, USA, etc.). 2. New subjects will be added and subjects that are not really needed will be removed. C. K-12 will maximize their time on choosing their career base on their ability. 1. Most students have hard time on choosing their wanted career. They take courses that are not their interest. 2. Giving more time for students to think of their career can help them excel in their career choice. IV. Conclusion:

A. A 10 year education plan is not enough for all the things students learn in high school. Teachers force to fit a 12 year education system lessons to a 10 year education system. The 2 years can also make students learn more rather than learning less. B. Restatement of the thesis statement

C. Being pro K-12 can help the Philippines. It improves the learning system, making students in primary and secondary school be more globally competitive reaching other countries level of education. 6 years in high school is also a big way to help students think of a career that will best suite them. Not making them choose a career that is not in their field of interest
