Santos-Recto bats for establishment of integrated schools
The House Committee on Basic Education on Monday (May 15) approved Batangas 6th District Representative Vilma Santos-Recto’s bill seeking to ensure access of elementary graduates to quality public high school education through the establishment of integrated schools.
The Batangas politiko said the bill seeks to expand existing public elementary schools to become integrated schools which will offer complete basic education, including high school.
Santos-Recto said the creation of integrated schools will allow elementary graduates to continue their education at lesser cost, especially on travel expenditures.
She added this will result in savings for the government as facilities of existing elementary schools may be utilized for the use of incoming high school students rather than constructing a separate high school in the area.
“There has been an alarming increase of elementary graduates who are unable to pursue secondary education because of the limited number of high schools and school facilities accessible within their communities,” Santos-Recto said.
