Pupils outside Metro Manila fared better in National Achievement Test

Only one student from Metro Manila (Taguig Elementary School) made it to the top 20 of the NAT administered by the Department of Education last March. Topnotcher was a Grade 6 pupil from Eastern Samar. Other topnotchers came from Cavite, Leyte, Butuan City and Biliran (what about Bicol?).

The Department of Education Bureau of Elementary Education director Yolando Quijano said that students in public schools in the provinces fared better than those in Metro Manila because they were less distracted.

My own take on this is that there is bigger shortage of classrooms in urban centers (especially Metro Manila) resulting in several shifts using the same classroom and therefore, shorter class hours.
