Hundreds of Costa Rican Classrooms Closed Due to StrikeThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Although the demonstration just started today, the involvement for the strike is felt first in the schools of San Jose. From around 7:00 am there was not the usual feeling from the bustle of schools and colleges.

Omar Dengo School in Barrio Cuba was completely closed. In that community, South High School students receive a list of teachers who would be reporting to work. However, the director was not because they had “other administrative tasks.”

At the Manuel Belgrano School in Hatillo 1, the security guard said he had not received students, because there are no teachers. Young people were warned last week.

The press office of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP) said that they have no monitoring of the subject. Mora said that while there is no declaration of illegality, the authorities may not take action.

But Mora acknowledged that they expected the absenteeism, especially at the secondary level, as it was the Association of Secondary School Teachers (APSE) who called for participation in the strike.
