Only 3 of 10 will graduate from public high schools

A recent study by the Instituto de Evaluación de Investigación de la Calidad Educativa (Ideice) concluded that of every 1,000 elementary public school students, only 300 will finish high school. Deputy Rafael Mendez considered the school dropout rate alarming and called for the doubling of efforts to improve the quality of education in the public school system.

The Ideice executive director, Julio Leonardo Valeirón, said that too many of those that leave school turn to crime and delinquency.

“This research is not just to help us understand the gravity of the situation, we must use it as an instrument to continue the transformation process of Dominican education,” said legislator Mendez, a deputy for the ruling PLD party in Bahoruco.
