1.2 Status of Basic Education Resources

            In the public elementary level, there are three thousand six hundred ninety-six (3,696) teachers and support personnel deployed in four hundred seventy (470) schools. Analysis of teacher needs by school shows that the province needs thirty-one (31) more teachers in the first congressional district and one hundred (100) more in the second congressional district to reinforce the existing staff.

           In the public secondary level, there are six hundred sixty five (665) teachers deployed in 62 schools. Of these schools, eighteen (18) are in need of fifty four (54) additional teacher items due to overcrowded classrooms, the creation of new sections, and the opening of new curriculum years. The Cervantes National High School in particular does not have a teacher with plantilla item. The seven (7) teachers assigned to this school are being paid by the local government. The same is true with Caoayan National High School which opened its doors to first and second year students in June 2001 but the three teachers are being paid by the local government.

1.3 Class-Classroom Ratio

            The class-classroom ratio in the elementary level is 1:1.03 while that of the secondary level is 1:1. This shows that the classroom shortage is not critical, however, some classrooms are not comfortable and not conducive to learning for the pupils, students and teachers.

            In the elementary level, fifty two thousand six hundred seventy eight (52,678) armchairs are available. This means that twenty six thousand five hundred sixty seven (26,567) are still needed to achieve a 1:1 pupil-armchair ratio. In the secondary level, twenty four thousand nine hundred ten armchairs are available which show a shortage of six thousand three hundred thirty two (6,332) to achieve a 1:1 student armchair-ratio.

            In the elementary level, the textbook-pupil ratio is 1:2 while that in the secondary level is 1:1.2. This condition is lamentable since the existing textbooks are already condemnable and need replacement.

Instructional equipment are inadequate in the elementary level. In the secondary level, only the big high schools (old national high schools) have available instructional equipment. Of the sixty two (62) public high schools, only seven (7) belong to this category.

The presence of an Education Supervisor I for Non-Formal Education has solved the problem on who will tackle the task related to this area. Assistance is provided by district/school coordinators designated in each of the twenty-five (25) districts and some secondary schools. Each municipality has its own set of facilitators to handle organized literacy classes, literacy cum livelihood classes, functional education literacy program and continuing education program organized throughout the division.

1.4 Expanding Access to Basic Education

            Some primary schools have opened their intermediate classes to complete the curriculum offering. This paved the way for the increase of participation rate because pupils need not stop schooling after finishing Grade II or Grade IV.

1.5 Incomplete Elementary Schools

            Of the four hundred eighty (480) public elementary schools, three hundred nineteen (347) are complete and eighteen (18) incomplete. There are eighty-four (84) complete and forty nine (49) incomplete primary schools. The main reason why there are still incomplete elementary or primary schools is the inadequacy of new teacher items allocated yearly. Another reason is the enrolment in a certain grade level does not warrant the creation of a separate class or section.

1.6 Literacy Rate

            As of 2006, simple literacy rate in the province is 97% while the functional literacy rate is 94%.

1.7 Participation Rate

            Participation rate at the elementary level is 98% while that at the secondary level is 82%.

1.8 Teachers-Pupil/Student Ratio

            The teacher-pupil ratio for elementary level is 1:21, while that of the secondary is 1:33.

1.9Class Size

            Class size for the elementary level is 45 while for the secondary level is 50.

1.10 Drop-out Rate

            The drop-out rate in the province is 2 percent for the elementary level and 4 percent for the secondary level.

1.11 Classroom-Pupil Ratio

            The classroom pupil ratio for the elementary level is 1:24.

1.12 Textbook-Pupil Ratio

            The textbook-pupil ratio for the elementary level is 1:1.

1.13 Repetition Rate by Grade

            Grade I                        77.00%

            Grade II                       70.00%

            Grade III                      52.00%

            Grade IV                     41.00%

            Grade V                      15.00%

            Grade VI                     0.07%

1.14 Completion Rate

            Elementary                 95%

            Secondary                  77%

1.15 Cohort-Survival Rate

            Elementary                 90%

            Secondary                  77%

1.16 Drop-out Rate

            Elementary                 2%

            Secondary                  4%
