"sorry" Report - learning english in mexico
IAPE singled out as Best Practice by Mexicanos Primero
10 February 2015
The organization Mexicanos Primero released a report showing that English is taught "too little, too poorly and too late."
97% of students did not reach the level foreseen by the curriculum of the SEP (the Mexican Ministry of Public Education) and
52% of teachers do not even reach level B1 (that expected for a student in 9th grade).
86% of public schools in basic education do not have even one English teacher.
Mexicanos Primero is leading the fight for a plurilingual Mexico, starting with the release of their report.
Worldfund's IAPE program was mentioned as one of six best practices in English teaching practices. Read about it here.
