A Parent's Message to the Teachers - Patricia Adamo
It's amazing how much the children have learned. Many started the school years not knowing how to read, or even recognize words. They have progressed from being read to by their parents to now reading to their parents, to themselves, and to others. They are able to write and they could do some early math. As parents, we had enjoyed seeing their works on the hallways, their beautiful artwork, their interesting projects, and their very first book report. We are grateful not only for what they have learned, but how they have learned it. The teachers have provided a warm, caring and nurturing environment that was a lot of fun. The kids enjoyed learning and they enjoyed you as their teachers. I did get a chance to tack with some of the students to get some feedback on what they thought about this past year. So I am going to share with you some of their thoughts. When I asked them what they liked most about their teacher, here is what some of them said:
"I like my teacher because she taught me reading."
"I like my teacher because she gave me fun work."
"I like my teacher because she took me to field day."
"I like my teacher because she gave me extra recess."
Then I asked them what they learned the most.
One said, "I learned the most in math and reading."
Another said, "I learned the most about animals."
And this one is my favorite, "I learned to work hard."
Thank you again so much for a wonderful school year. You have prepared our children well for next year. Thank you.

There is information to be gained from data. Tests in schools can be informative. Scores of students provide a quick glimpse of the current state of education. Thus, it is useful to have these numbers. These numbers may not tell everything in detail with high accuracy. Nevertheless, test results allow for a useful perspective. The National Achievement Test administered by the Department of Education (DepEd) in the Philippines, a set of standardized tests addressing the major subjects taught in school, is an example. These tests are given to Grade 3 where students are assessed in both English and Filipino (These two subjects comprise two thirds of the exam) and Math and Science (These two account for the remaining one third). A different set of tests is given to Grade 6 pupils where each of the following 5 subjects is assigned 40 items: (Science, Math, English, Filipino and Social Studies). Another set is administered to fourth year high school students (This is currently the last year

It has been more than a year and while trying to condense this entire blog into its most salient points, I came across Diane Ravitch's new book " Reign of Error ". (Ravitch, Diane (2013-09-17).

The book is notably and strongly supported by data and research.
