Key to success for “Build, Build, Build” program

"Instead of catching-up, build classrooms in advance," so said Senator Sonny Angara, chair of the Senate Committee on Finance, as he emphasized that the key to the success of a ‘Build, Build, Build’ and a zero-classroom backlog drive in schools is for government to have the technical expertise to overcome planning, procurement, and building challenges. Angara made the proposal as budget documents showed that the Malacanang-recommended P20 billion for the construction of new public classrooms next year is good for 8,000 rooms – way below DepEd’s request of P172.5 billion for 64,795 rooms.
