Minister of Education Andrés Navarro announced that 300,000 additional students will be attending the extended school day program. This means 1,450,000 students are enrolled in the 8 to 4pm education programs, up from 1,150,000 in the past 2016-2017 school year. Navarro expects that for the 2018-19 school year, another 300,000 students will be incorporated, for some 1,800,000 students benefiting from the modality.

Navarro highlighted how the extended day schools contribute to the quality of life of thousands of families. The children study at better facilities, and get free breakfast and lunch, their books, uniforms, shoes and school supplies.

He spoke when participating in the 11th Edition of the United Nations International Model (Minume 2017) at the Ministry of Foreign Relations Convention Center.
