Final Exam for Juvenile Offenders at CC2

This weekend, Saturday 27th June 2009, will be the last day of our teaching to Juvenile Offenders at Correctional Center II (CC2). We are going to evaluate what we have taught by testing their knowledges of personal growth as well as legal topics that have benn taught by PUC Legal Clinic Students (Juvenile Justice Program) over the past 6 months.

It is not difficult but rather a challenging job as some students can read and write; other can read but can not write  at a speed that they can complete the exam within an hour and a half; the other can neither read nor write. They require all sorts of assistance from PUCLC students. Interestingly within one open room those with limited ability to read and write will draw picture and orally express their understanding to gain passing score to be awarded a certificate of completion.

We think that the certificate is an added value to the education they received from us so what we keen to see is their expression of their understanding.
