‘Teacher schools’ with low board passing rates revealed

A list of Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) with test-taker passing rates of less than 10% in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) for the past five years was released by Philippine Business for Education (PBEd), a non-government organization committed towards education reform.

The list reveals the passing rates of these TEIs for their first time test-takers as well as where these TEIs are located, the number of takers, and mode of ownership. It covers nine instances of the LET from October 2009 to September 2013.

Some key findings:

  1. There are 128 (out of approximately 1100) TEIs for both elementary and secondary LET exams for which less than 10% of their students passed the LET.
  2. Most of these are private schools and are mostly found in Mindanao.
  3. The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), one of the most impoverished regions in the country, has the most number of schools on this list.

Elementary Licensure Exam

There are 54 schools on the list that are offering Bachelor of Elementary Education for which less than 10% of their students passed the LET on their first try. Of these schools, 18 are in Luzon, 4 are in Visayas, and 32 are in Mindanao. Meanwhile, 39 of these schools are private schools while 15 are government schools.

Secondary

There are 74 schools offering Bachelor of Secondary Education whose LET passing rates for first time takers are below 10%. Of these schools, 19 are found in Luzon, 9 are found in Visayas, and 46 are found in Mindanao. In terms of ownership, 56 of these schools are private schools while 18 are sustained by people’s taxes.

Both Licensure Exams

There are 18 schools offering both Bachelor of Elementary Education and Bachelor of Secondary Education where less than 10% of their students passed the LET on their first take. Of these schools, one is found in Luzon, none in Visayas, and 17 in Mindanao, 12 of which are in ARMM. Fourteen out of the 18 schools are private while four are government-owned.

The list was based on an analysis which was publicly presented by PBEd on March 17, 2014. The study aims to provide detailed information to parents and prospective Teacher Education students regarding the quality of education being offered by TEIs in the country.

It also aims to provide sound and grounded research to help policymakers in their reform efforts. These include:

  • Closing down programs of TEIs that have consistently performed poorly for five years.
  • Requiring TEIs (especially SUCs and LCUs) to make LET results readily available to parents and prospective students.
  • Exploring other pre-college screening instruments or standards such as national entrance exam for teachers.
  • Conducting a parallel review of LET questions and the teacher education curriculum of TEIs for improved alignment to the new K-12 system.

Disclaimer

The number of TEIs in the analysis varies with actual number TEIs due to the following:

  1. Difference in TEI names or codes written by the examinees
  2. TEIs are tagged based on the undergraduate degree of applicants including those who took up Certificate in Teaching Programs
  3. Recently closed TEIs by CHED

The complete results of the analysis are at http://pbed.ph/taxonomy/term/2/downloads.
