Bacolod technical school bill passed-A A +A
Saturday, March 16, 2013
THE City Council of Bacolod has passed on first reading the ordinance establishing a Bacolod City Technical School.
Authored by Councilor El Cid Familiaran, the ordinance said the demand for technical/technological work necessitates for Bacolod City to review its own policies and readiness towards this reality.
Positively responding to this reality will enable the city to strategically address the gaps, especially in the field of education, vis-à-vis for work opportunities in the country and around the world, it said.
The resolution said there is a need for the City of Bacolod to establish a free vocational/technical/technological school that will prepare its young as human resources to meet the demand for work globally.
Bacolod City should consider the Food and Southbound terminal and its surrounding areas in Barangay Alijis as the site or campus of the Bacolod City Technical School, the resolution said.
The resolution added the city will allocate an initial fund for the implementation of the ordinance. (Carla N. Canet)
