School parents come out to demand promised improvements

(Press release) The parents of the Sierra Aljibe primary school in Los Ángeles (Estación de Jimena) came out this morning -as they have every morning for several months- to demand the improvements that have been promised several times by the Provincial Education Department. Among many unkept promises are a dining room, computers (there are only 4 for over 220 students, and one of them is used exclusively by the school's librarian) and a proper school administrator (the one administrator works only two days a week). The main arguments the parents use is an increase in population of the area, which has grown exponentially over the last few years. The matter has been extensively covered by local and regional media, so they are hoping for some results soon. (See related JP item here).
