Private schools pray for miracle as enrollment continues to drop
Private schools still experiencing low enrollment despite the gradual reopening of businesses and schools, a group of school administrators said Tuesday.
Eleazardo Kasilag, president of the Federation of Associations of Private School Administrators, said his group has surrendered on asking help from the government.
Many private schools are only hoping for a miracle that enrollment figures will increase, Kasilag said.
“Lahat ng private schools, more or less. This is too much. But we’re asking for miracles,” Kasilag said.
This is the reason Kasilag empathizes with Colegio De San Lorenzo, which announced its permanent closure.
