Hi Roger,

I fully agree with your comments and suggestions. In the Philippines, our systematic review of ALS aims to do most of what you said. I would just like to add that there is also another dimension to the program: self-actualization. A significant number of learners who signed up for the program do not plan to get certified anymore. They join because they have specific needs and are fully content with themselves once they achieve these goals. I alluded to these kinds of goals in the blog post as "being able to read a text message". What needs to be understood also is that these goals are in no way inferior to the goals of other individuals who desire to get certified and move on to higher learning or better quality of work. Indeed, much of the challenge in evaluating the program lies in this fundamental concept and the flexibility such a concept requires from the implementation of the program.
