• Puerto Rico is the third largest school district in the United States. It has approximately 560,000 students, 1,523 schools and 42,000 teachers.
• According to the Puerto Rican Scholastic Achievement Tests, 61% of students are not proficient in Spanish, 60% are not performing at grade level in English and 78% do not possess adequate math skills.
• More than 900 of the schools in Puerto Rico have failed to meet the minimum achievement standards stipulated by the federal No Child Left Behind Act for at least two consecutive years.
Sapientis is a non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of public education in Puerto Rico. We created the Coalition for Equity and Quality Education (CECE, for its acronym in Spanish), a movement focused in mobilizing individuals that are committed to exercise leadership to improve the quality of the public education system. We believe that the key to success consists in connecting all sectors of the Island and work together to transform the public education system to guarantee an excellent education to every student.
