    Default Are Ther ANY Good Schools For Our Children In The DR? Either "Public",or "Private????

    Many DR1ers have been speculating about that.Some have been posting their feelings,Some from personal experience(Mostly Those With NO Kids In School Here!) and too many only posting what fits their "Agenda"!
    Well,we now have the data from the "Horses Mouth"!!!
    The "ranking" of DR schools,was presented last night,by the "Fundacion Pensar y Crecer" headed by former DR Education Minister,Melanio Paredes.
    Sadly,here are the results,based on the students "National Tests' scores.
    Of the 5,515 schools in the DR,including public,and private,82.7 % recieved a "D" clasification.
    They had combined scores in all catagories below 55 points.
    Of the 2,377 public schools 1 to 8th grade in the DR, 2.141 got a "D" clasification.
    The "Private" schools did a little better.
    These data only make it more obvious than ever,we must teach,nurture,guide,mold,and love, our children at "HOME"!
    Because,it is most likely that they won't be receiving much of the "Above" at school here in the DR!
    ______________________________________________________________________________________
    NOW,for all of you who just can't wait to make your STANDARD reply about ANYTHING negative in the DR,
    By giving your unverified opinion about how,"It's worse in Insert,USA,Canada,England,European countries,"or "Botswana",where it actually might be),I don't give a "Tinker's Damn" about the educational system "Where You "Come From"!!!!!!!

    What a stupid idea by ME!
    I know that you can't help yourselves.You are "Hardwired" to defend the "Undefensable",with the "Unplausable"!

    Sure,it's the front page,lead story,in "Diario Libre" today,26 Jan.2012.
    Go to "Diariolibre.com.........."Virtual"
    I know someone here on DR1 can post the entire story here.
    I also am willing to wager that it will also be the "Lead" in today's,"DR1News",if you,"NEED" it in English!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can't wait to see the "Spin Doctors" response to this FACT!

    "Gracias" Minerva,I doubt many will take the time and effort to read the entire report,including me!
    But they can if they wish to now.
    I do hope everyone who is interested in the educational system HERE will ,at least,read the "DiarioLibre" story in Spanish,or the DR1News report in English.
    Again,Thank You!

    Sure there are some. And I can question the mechanics of the list anyway. The fact that the list is based on the number of students at any given school that passed the four portions of the National Tests given last summer and fall is the key factor to question. It is widely known that teachers give students the answers and that itself is enough to distort the results.

    However, it does give you a comfy feeling to know that the little school in Jarabacoa did good.

    So even with the teachers "Rigging" the results to get better scores,they still fail miserably!
    Maybe the teachers are not even qualified to "Teach" the correct answers!!!!!!

    This is the first year that my wife has had grade 8 in her school so she'll get " ranked" next year. As HB says, if the ranking is only based on the testing results and the teachers teach the test or give the answers, what does the ranking prove?

    A big component of education is the parents and the home. You can spend 1 million US per student but if the kids don't go to school and the parents aren't involved and make sure homework is done, then it will just be wasted monies.

    It "Proves",that even when given the answers to the test,they still can't pass the test!
    The students are actually more difficient than the test scores show.

    Have you all seen the national exams? A lot of them don't make sense, the questions have trick answers, etc... I'm not justifying at all - just saying. However, even if the tests were not poorly made, most students still wouldn't pass them and that's sad to me.
