Sonora governor promises 100% of schools will reopen next year
Sonora’s governor has promised that all schools across the Mexican state will be ready to reopen by the beginning of next year. Many schools are facing infrastructure issues that have kept students out of classrooms.
The Sonoran government has implemented a program called “reactivate your school,” using both state funds and assistance from parents and businesses to fix up derelict buildings
Among the major needs are repairs to air conditioning, water fountains, sinks and toilets, indoor and outdoor lighting and internet and telephone connections.
Sonora Gov. Alfonso Durazo said this week, however, that they will all be up and running by the end of the year.
