They explain that the City Council of Las Gabias requested the Junta de Andalucia for an increase in the number of Early Childhood Education places at El Torreon school for their next course. Since one in three children has requested it, they explained. Sources from the Town Hall
The Board only offers two lines of the 50-square-foot El Torreon facility, despite the high demand for places in the municipality's 2019-2020 school year.
"It's an unusual situation at the CEIP El Torreon since 24 children were left without a place in the next course, which is a desperate situation to many fathers or mothers," says Vanessa Polo, mayor of Gabirra. She has met with the Municipal Schooling Commission formed by the Associations of Parents of Students and directors of the schools to examine the situation.
The mayor states that he has written a letter to Antonio Jesus Castillo (the Education delegate) to express my concern and to demand that appropriate steps be taken.
Polo points out that the Board has to solve this problem since our municipality is one the youngest and most children in Andalusia. It is also not understood why, even if the center is willing to have three lines, it only offers two when there is such a demand. According to the councilor, the City Council will "protect with all its might" the opening of Colegio El Torreon's third line of children.
