How Philippine localities stack up in education

WANT to have an idea how the various cities and provinces in the Philippines stack up in terms of academic performance?

The image to the right summarizes the results of the National Career Assessment Examination (NCEA), which the Department of Education administered to graduating high school students in December 2006, both from public and private schools. The results were released last May.

Some quick observations:

1. Urban areas generally fared better than rural areas, as city schools divisions outshone their provincial counterparts. Access to bigger local resources, like the Special Education Fund (SEF) tax money, is probably one of the factors here.

2. Being a city helps, but it doesn't guarantee high performance. For instance, only Makati and Marikina among the NCR cities barged into the top 15, showing that academic performance is not all about the money.

3. Provincial divisions can do well. Exhibit "A" would be the Samar-Leyte provinces: they are not resource rich but they have done very well, taking four of the top 10 and six of the top 15.

4. Our little effort to improve education in Naga City acquited itself well, I think. The city placed ranked 8th among 103 city schools divisions, and 14th among 188 city and provincial schools divisions. By comparison, the next best city schools division in the Bicol came at 40th.

Feel free to share your own conclusions from the data.

Because in Urban areas, they fullfilled the needs of students while in remote areas in all provinces here in the country, the needs of every student is lack. Sometimes there's no book, no computer, and minimal educational facilities. This is the reason why students in the provinces are not performing well.
