The local government of Quezon City will prioritize the construction of additional classrooms to cope with the increasing number of enrollees in the city’s public schools.

Outgoing Mayor Herbert M. Bautista and Education Secretary Leonor Briones on Tuesday led the inauguration of a new four-story senior high school building in Flora Ylagan, Barangay Pinyahan.

The new Flora A. Ylagan Senior High School building has 23 classrooms and laboratories.

“This is part of our assistance to the national government with regards to the K-12 program. With this, the classroom shortage was reduced,” Bautista said.

According to the city government, the Bautista administration has reduced the classroom shortage to less than 1,000 from 3,000.

Since 2010, the Quezon City government has invested more than P3 billion to put up more school buildings and P743 million to repair and maintain them.

Briones, in a separate statement, expressed her gratitude to the city for prioritizing education in its programs.
