Mayor Quisumbing to build new school buildings in questionable lots


Mandaue City Mayor Luigi Quisumbing has proposed to construct new school buildings in recovered city-owned lots which were questionably disposed of.

In an interview after his State of the Children’s Address on Monday, Quisumbing lamented the lack of space where the government can build the needed school facilities.

“Giving our children an education is one of the most important tools that they can use to reach their full potential,” the politiko said in a Cebu Daily News article.

“Mandaue’s biggest challenge is acquiring lots where we can build day care centers and schools,” he added.

Quisumbing noted that the increasing population of children is one of the factors influencing the quality of public education in the city.
