To that end, the Minister is asking school administrators to report on the number of dropouts last year and how their going to handle the problem this year.

The MEP is also is looking to use the scholarship programs for students announced Monday, along with help from the Instituto Mixto de Ayuda Social, the IMAS (the government agency that operates the duty free stores at the airports, among other things) to keep children in school.

The IMAS and MEP will make available ¢5.715 billion colones to the program.
