He said that guaranteeing education access is crucial and that he is working to achieve it, even though it is not within his powers.
This measure benefits 160 Maracena students, as well the local bookshops that sell lots of books to the town hall. There were 88 Baccalaureate students in the first year and 72 in the second year.
