GRADE: Passed Failed

Based on the statistical analysis conducted, most of the youth


surveyed (83%) think that PGMA did nothing for the education sector.
Only 13% think that PGMA did improved the education sector. Instead
she slashed the budget for education to its lowest level and permitted

exhibits a clear evaluation of PGMA’s performance based on the different
concerns of the youth and the society. Though there was no comparison
made between choices or test how one’s choice is affected by his school and
age, there is an overwhelming accordance among the youth that there are
issues that PGMA failed to address.

More that a half of the youth perceives that PGMA failed to do her
job as shown by the 65% of the respondents who views that PGMA was not
effective and a very low
