Project Literacy

Recent research about education in the Philippines yielded alarming results. In 2018, the Philippines ranked the lowest in Reading, Mathematics, and Science among all countries participating in the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment [PISA] (Schleicher, 2019). The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated learning poverty in the Philippines. According to a recent World Bank report, 9 out of 10 Filipino fifth graders cannot read simple grade-appropriate sentences (de Vera, 2021).

To help address the learning crisis in the country, the Reading Specialists has worked with various organizations and communities to provide ART: Assessment, Remediation and Intervention, and Training.
