Because of the rapid growth of population in Boracay, the local government of Malay is racing in order to keep track with the surge when it comes to education.
This is what SB Member Essel Flores, Chairman of Committee on Education of Malay Town Council, had said during an interview, wherein he stated that they are trying to keep abreast with the population in order to deliver appropriate education.
In fact he said the schools in Boracay have the ratio of 80:1 or 80 students for each teacher.
Although there is a lack of classrooms, the councilor said that they are trying to have adequate number of teachers for these students.
They are also proud to say that somehow education is still the LGU Malay’s priority, and they are pleased that Malay has the highest number of School Board Teachers compared to other towns
