Public schools are the latest victims of Puerto Rico’s debt crisis. The U.S. territory announced, Friday, that it will be closing nearly 200 public schools in the coming months to save $7 million. About 27 thousand students will have to be relocated to other schools. This is nothing new to Puerto Rico. From 2010 to 2015, 150 schools were closed. But the latest round of closures will be the largest in the Island’s history.

    • Some feel that sacrifices should be made in other areas though rather than to sacrifice education. Not sure if there are other ways to cut costs this much but education is so important.

      • Education is important but we have to understand that millions are spent for education. All these Federal Funds are focused in our School System. All these problems are caused by bad management from our Government.
