As a public school student and high school senior I think the Department of Education of Puerto Rico has to change the way they evaluate students, select and qualify their teachers, and give more resources to teachers and their schools. I've been a public school student for four years now and I've seen how much teachers have to do with so little. The Department of Education doesn't give enough resources to teachers or even to schools in general and this results in the poor academic achievement of most public school students in Puerto Rico. The lack of resources is so high some public schools don't have sanitary paper in their bathrooms for the use of students and school faculty. If the Department of Education really cares about the public school students of Puerto Rico they should show they care about the wellbeing of students.

Schools are not funded. Teachers are forced to work under unstable conditions. Given Puerto Rico's current financial situation, even the education system suffers the consecuences.

There are plenty of hardworking teachers that go the extra mile. Teachers work hard, the care, and they try to make the best with the little resources they are given.

If you are planning to study here in Puerto Rico (Elementary, Middle School, High School) be prepared to not have the same experience as in the states since the DE of Puerto Rico do not give the right resources to the teachers to give the class. But theres a good news, the teachers care about the student academic achievements and they do everything to help the students suceed in their academics.
