Reflections on aspects of teacher evaluation in Ecuador
For many years the National Teachers’ Union(UNE) has demanded that there be comprehensive education evaluation systems in Ecuador. They challenged governments to present their proposals and contrast them with what had been achieved. Of course, governments never wanted to bring to light their demagogy and inconsistencies. Not even in the projects with external debt did they use comprehensive evaluations that demonstrated an improvement in education. At the end of the World Bank’s EB/PRODEC project, it was pointed out: Unfortunately, to date there is no comprehensive evaluation that allows us to understand and assess in a complete manner the main achievements and difficulties that this model’s implementation has had.
