congressman, dep-ed asked to secure more funds for expansion of city schools
BAGUIO CITY – The city council on Monday urged Rep. Bernardo Vergara and the Dept. of Education (DepEd) to source out additional funds for the expansion of the different school facilities in the city.
In a resolution authored by Vice Mayor Daniel Farinas, the body said the city needs additional funding to acquire lands, construct buildings and purchase school equipment to meet the rising number of students.
“To cater to the increasing population of students in the city, which drastically increased in a very short period of time, there is a need to modernize the different educational facilities and amenities to serve these students. Public schools in the city lack decent facilities and amenities which would cater to the various school activities thus the need to modernize and expand the same,” Farinas noted.
“These modernization and expansion projects would be a great help for the students and a stepping stone for the government towards educational empowerment and nation-building,” he said.
The body said Vergara and the Dep-Ed must work on securing more funds to realize these projects. – A Refuerzo
