INEE and Unicef to Consult Indigenous Communities on Processes of Educational Evaluation

April 4, 2014

To determine the guidelines for examining education in indigenous communities, the National Institute for Educational Evaluation (INEE) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) will carry out a consultation in indigenous communities with the aim of learning what community members consider important in the educational process and how it may be evaluated.

During the signing of the agreement, Sylvia Schmelkes del Valle, president of INEE’s executive board, said that indigenous children and adolescents are the students that “attend school the least, and also stay in school the least”.

She added that despite being considered “good judges” by their teachers, rarely are they considered for taking part in evaluation processes.

The consultation, carried out in 50 communities and in 31 of the 68 original languages in 19 states will reveal what they do and do not enjoy about school, what they think about their teachers, and what subjects they prefer learning.

In an interview, she indicated that the pilot study is not a representative sample of indigenous communities since it will only be done in communities where “we have conditions allowing access without problems.”
