Education with an Objective

By Ron Brenneman | Project Leader

Education is relevant insofar as it leaves the student equipped for the full productive and social participation within their environment, prepared to innovate that environment and motivated to go beyond it's horizons. There is a need to define the objective of education, in that if it is to form good students or to improve productivity and the quality of life.

We maintain that academic performance is important only in its application to the environment and as a support for efficient and pertinent technical training. The debate regarding how to improve the low academic grades on standardized tests makes sense only insofar as these can improve the student's work and social skills.

The objective of the twelve years of basic education should be to train with personal and technical skills for job placement, self-employment or specialization with higher education. And the educational offer must respond to the conditions of real opportunities present in the student's environment.

For the environment of the north of Morazán, the labor insertion of a technical baccalauréat has three possibilities: to strengthen the installed capacity of the productive associations, to achieve one of the limited positions in the tourist industry, or self-employment. The current shortage of jobs in trade, manufacturing and processing in the environment leads us to establish a priority in technical training for self-employment.

We greatly appreciate your support for improving the quality of education for Salvadoran youth.
