Chilean High School Begins Post-Earthquake Reconstruction

Later this year the Instituto Superior de Commerce Eduardo Frei, the first commercial high school in Chile, will begin reconstruction. The project is made possible through the financial support of 1.5 million euros (9,900 million Chilean pesos) from a regional government in Paris, Île-de France. The building suffered significant damage great after the earthquake and has been closed since then. Today its 1,361 students are spread across the Liceo Comercial González Videla, Argomedo No. 360 and School Mexico. “The Insuco is a flagship school of the Metropolitan Region and major reconstruction is a priority,” says the mayor Echeverría. The school will resume operations at the beginning of the 2012 school year.
