Teaching candidates fail tests
Around 59% of the 16,000 candidates who took the competitive placement tests for the vacant teaching posts in the nation’s public schools have failed the tests. A total of 9,581 out of 16,239 failed the examinations and were disqualified, according to the Deputy Minister for Pedagogy and Technical Services, Luis Enrique Matos, as reported in Listin Diario.
The ministry is now in the second phase of assessing some six thousand candidates for primary school and high school posts, including language teachers, PE teachers, psychologists, guidance counselors, principals and deputy principals for jobs in state schools. According to Matos, the candidates who passed are now going into the second phase. Matos said that they hope to end up with three thousand of the best candidates.
