Costa Rica Students Back To Class Today!

Pre-schools, grade schools, colleges and special education centres open their doors today when some 940.000 students head back to class today for the start of the 2014 public school year.

The Ministerio de Educacion Publica (MEP) estimates that 117.700 students will start their year in preschool, 447.000 in grade school, 361.300 in secondary and 14.500 in special education.

Education Minister, Leonardo Garnier, assures that the schools, teachers and transportation are all ready. Garnier and Costa Rica’s first vice-presdident, Alfio Piva, will be at the Liceo Académico de Curridabat this morning to greet students.

The MEP says this year 24 new school will be opening their doors for the first time, that includes technical and night schools.

Costa Rica invests 8% of the Gross National Product in education.

In 2103 the MEP’s education budget included spending also includes food service for some 673.000 students. IN 2014 it is budgeting for 690.000 meals daily.

According to Garnier, one of the biggest challenges facing the ministry this year is the improvement of training programs for teachers.
