Teacher Education in the Philippines
It is no wonder then that a group of education reform advocates in the Philippines is urging the government to close down non-performing education schools. The Philippine Business for Education has compiled data on education schools to expose which schools are not performing well. A complete list can be downloaded from this site. The overall picture is not pretty. More than half of the schools are failing. The figure below (which is a bit rosier since it only includes data from years during which the passing rates were more than 50%) shows how many of these schools are not serving their students:

The public should not wait for the government. The above information is available. Read it. It is not worth enrolling in the schools from which more than eighty percent of the students fail the licensure examination. It is simply a waste of money, time and effort.
