Domagoso said the Manila local government aims to strengthen the public school system and address the teacher-student ratio by redeveloping the city’s schools.

The mayor also vowed that the city government will continue to address the concerns of the education sector.

“Kahit na patuloy tayong sinusubok ng pandemya, hindi namin kakalimutan ang education sector. Today is a testament to you. Patuloy natng papalakasin and ating public education system (Even though we are continuously being challenged by the pandemic, we will not forget the education sector. Today is a testament to this. We will continue to strengthen our public education system,” he said.

“We will continue to address the concern of our teachers and the future generation which is our students,” he added.

Under the modernization project, the new Dr. Alejandro Albert Elementary School will have 234 classrooms, 16 offices, a library, canteen, auditorium, gym, roof deck, two basketball courts, seven stairs, and 10 elevators units with 24-person capacity each.
