Mayor Veliaj met with principles of schools across Tirana on Tuesday, at the Dhora Leka school premises and urged teachers and parents to enroll students in schools closer to their homes, in order to avoid overcrowding and traffic, when those lost hours can used for other activities benefiting the students. Veliaj said that the legend of the 80s in regard to Tirana schools, where some schools are better than the others, thus leading the parents to enroll their children there, is not longer valid.
Veliaj added that students will be provided with the same high standards and quality education in all schools. Veliaj also announced that on September 14, a general cleaning activity will be carried out throughout the territory and invited the educational staff to contribute in keeping the school premises clean. For school safety, there will be a municipal police officer or volunteer at each school, helping the little ones cross the white lines at intersections./Tiranapost.al.
