This bit of news from Peru makes me wonder how many would pass a basic competency test if our own classroom teachers were set one. Apparently the situation in Peru is the product of years of 60s-style 'progressive' - nay 'revolutionary' - (anti)educational ideology, which eschewed all forms of testing, even of teachers, most of whom are wholly unqualified. The result is that Peru is near the bottom in the world league of educational attainment. Hey ho.
