Educational centers revamp begins in El Salvador

The new Minister of Education, Mauricio Pineda, supervised today the transport of materials for the readjustment and repair of different educational centers nationwide.

“We are starting a deployment where this administration wants educational centers to have adequate spaces for effective learning”  — said the Minister during a press conference.

The head of education explained that, upon the arrival of the government of President Bukele, 60% of the infrastructure of educational centers was damaged.

Among the educational centers that will receive the supplies for their renovation are: Los Almendros School Center, in Acajutla, Sonsonate; Canton Casa de Piedra School Center, San Marcos, San Salvador; Canton Las Flores School Center, Tonacatepeque, San Salvador; and Santa Teresa School Center, San Bartolo canton, in Chalatenango.

“We will gradually reach all the educational centers until we cover the country” — reported Pineda.

Due to the abandonment of previous governments, schools have deteriorated. The government of the president, Nayib Bukele, has allocated an investment of $44.4 million for the readjustment of schools.
