State of the Education Mathematics K12 Current State Very bad One the of the worst in the region and the world
State of Education Mathematics K12 INTERNATIONAL ASSESSMENTS SERCE Second Regional Comparative and Explanatory Study (Year 2008)
State of Education Mathematics K12 SERCE 2008 17 Countries in the region Paraguay among the 5 scores below the regional average in all the subjects tested 54% of students in 3rd grade in the lowest levels of mathematics 25% of students in 6th grade couldn’t solve problems of division, multiplication, sums with fractions, common geometric shapes.
State of Education Mathematics K12 Level1: Recognize basic facts and concepts. Level 2: Recognize facts, concepts, direct and explicit relationships. Solve simple problems. Level 3: Recognize concepts, relationships and no explicit properties. Solve simple problems. May interpret information from different representations. Level 4: Solve complex problems of many conceptual domains, with no explicit information. SERCE LEVELS

State of Education Mathematics K12 LEVELS SNEPE Area of Mathematics for Secondary School Education Level 3: Inference and modeling of effective strategies to solve problems of greater complexity. Level 2: Connection and integration of data to solve problems of less complexity. Level 1: Reproduction and procedures. Students are able to solve placed in familiar and close contexts. Level 0: Students placed in this group do not show to have the content management to let them solve even the tasks of level 1.

Educative Reform (since1994) Amplified the coverage (BE) Spread the access Improved retention It didn’t assured the training of new teachers Systems of permissive promotion Deficient training in ITTs
Training of Teachers
Teachers’ Practice TRAINING RESEARCH in 2012 Mathematics and Sciences teaching conducted by the MEC and BID (Ministry of Education and Culture) (Inter-American Development Bank) Teacher Practicing in Paraguay Mechanic Repetition Practice Memorization In about 50% of the evaluated classes the teachers transmitted wrong concepts. With any kind of reactions from students

CURRENT SITUATION NEW GOVERNMENT (since august) Any proposal was presented Busy “cleaning the house” Legal holes Small budget Social responsibilities They plan “to do something different” with “immediate results” We offer to help them to do something that really helps to improve the teachers’ practice FONACIDE: dollars each year for Projects to Improve Education
