Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Jakarta provincial government plans to increase the number of junior high schools and high schools or vocational schools in densely populated areas to improve the quality of education for its residents."We plan to add more junior high schools and high schools or vocational schools. We need to do that," Jakarta Acting Governor Heru Budi Hartono stated when met in South Jakarta, Friday. He explained that areas with spacious land will have a new school building in accordance with the requirement. "Meanwhile, other areas, with limited land, will have two schools under one building. For example, elementary school combined with junior high school," Hartono stated. In addition, a legislator of the Jakarta Regional House of Representatives (DPRD), Nurhasan, also supports the regional government's plan to open more schools in densely populated areas in order to improve the quality of residents' education. "It is saddening to know there are many densely populated areas in the city lacking junior high schools to vocational schools," he pointed out at the DPRD Plenary Meeting in Jakarta on September 13.
