He said the Infrastructure Finance Authority (AFI) had given him about 10 months to carry out repairs this year and complete the repairs.
“There is a demand for withdrawal from communities (classes), there is a security problem and we will be vigilant about everything that can happen,” he said.
Due to the insecurity that the warning of the College of Engineering might unleash on the parents, the Secretary invited them to prepare.
“We’re talking about the product, because no one can say for sure what’s going on with the structures, what the reaction will be.

Alicia Flores condemned that the jobs described in the AFI auction do not address the seismic impact of schools to repair public schools and in many cases act only as a preventive measure. He warned that if the overall condition of the structure of each school is not fully understood, the steps to be taken to strengthen them and their costs cannot be determined.
