Christian schools merge with public school system

Education Minister Andres Navarro announced that 137 Christian schools will now be operating under the same administrative and pedagogical structures of public schools, while maintaining their Christian curriculum. The Ministry of Education has also integrated several Roman Catholic schools into the public school network.

The new collaboration agreement, that detailed the guidelines for the joint Christian-public school education program, was signed by Navarro and Manuel Estrella, representing the Christian churches.

A Roundtable for Constructive Dialog was created as part of the program to ensure that Christian schools, churches, councils and assemblies can be part of an inclusive, free and quality education, and that no Dominican, because of his physical, economic, cognitive or thought religion is left out of the Educational Revolution, which, as you can see, is also a Christian cause,” Navarro emphasized in the press release on the agreement.

The agreement involves school co-management in 134 Christian educational centers nationwide that will pass to the public sector, with an enrollment of approximately 40 thousand students. The goal is to include 65 more schools in the near future, with another 7,000 students.
