I am sure Miranda has one of the highest levels within Venezuela. Kudos to the education team of the Miranda government. For the last couple of years I have been trying, together with other Venezuelans, to promote the implementation of the PISA programme for our country.
We asked the national government on several occassions to let Venezuela take part. It refused. It ignored us. The current government hates transparency and open, real debate it prefers parallel monologues. The government of Miranda, led by opposition politician Henrique Capriles, accepted the challenge and got the pupils from Miranda-controlled schools tested by the OECD. What are the results? They are very much in line with what I expected.
Perhaps they are a little bit better than my expectations, actually. Venezuelan pupils do worse in maths than other Latin American pupils, which is something I very much expected, as I have written earlier. With these results you can understand to some extent what kind of problems we are facing Although Miranda is a very varied region, with highly skilled people next to people with little formal education, rich and poor to very poor neighbourhoods, it is still close to the capital and thus closer to a strong flow of ideas.
Miranda is also governed by civilians from the opposition and not by a military government.
This is a good start in order to bring about transparency to education in Venezuela. I will be posting a lot about this in the next weeks. I NOW got some more feedback about the problem with the standards: apparently the Chavez government did not suply the required information that PISA also needed to make a better comparison.
Shame on Chavismo. Labels: alternative , education in Venezuela , ideas for Venezuela , interior. In Venezuela and in the Spanish history Ehinger was mostly known as Alfinger. That's a very rare name in Germany. He arrived to the Land of Grace as first governor of the Welser concession in He had been plundering, exploring, plundering, exploring, making friends and foes through terra incognita to Europeans, across some incredibly harsh regions.

From history we know Europeans started settling Western Venezuela in Coro, with Ampies and the Welser, but they soon left that arid place and moved to more fertile areas along the El Tocuyo River up to Carora and from El Tocuyo to Nueva Valencia and ultimately towards Caracas. I analyzed the electoral records we have from Venezuela. This is weird. Below you see the distribution of voters per state with the very strange name Alfinger. Each dot represents a voter with that surname. It would be interesting to check out their Y haplotype.
Surnames were becoming customary in the Spanish world earlier than in other regions. Still, Venezuela back then was not a place where Europeans tended to marry and register long-term relationships with native Americans. And yet it seems as if some people started to use that very distinct surname in one of the regions where that Conquistador was active. Did they just take over that name as remembrance of a myth? Or were they indeed the descendants of that Southern German Conquistador?

The Resilience of Venezuelan Authoritarianism
Considering the age distribution of Venezuela back then, it means just a tiny minority of children was going to school. In the Llanos the situation was much worse, though.
In Barinas, for instance, only 1 out of persons was at that moment going to school. In the Delta to the East , it was only 1 out of The average child had almost 5 more chances to be attending school if he was living in or around Caracas, Valencia or Maracaibo than in the Llanos or many other places.
Die Krise eskaliert
And still most were not going to school. Only my maternal grandmother, living close to Valencia, went to school - for two full years. My other grandmother was illiterate and my grandfather had a similar education as my maternal grandmother - who was single parent. The situation improved a lot after , specially quantitatively. My parents, like most others, profited from that. Still, the difference between the average level in Caracas and a few other places and the "countryside" was and still is enormous.
And what many people don't understand: that "countryside" is now full of middle-size cities. It's no longer just rural but home to millions Labels: education in Venezuela , history of Venezuela , interior.
