The City Government’s Educational Program focuses on giving priority to the less privileged sector. Hence, emphasis is on the implementation of the “City Scholarship Program” and the “Alternative Learning System” (ALS), where poor but deserving students are given scholarships in the city’s respectable and prestigious educational institutions.

Mayor Sally believes in giving equal opportunity and access to education. Hence, out-of-school youth, undergraduates, correctional inmates, reformed drug offenders and those in the marginalized sector are afforded basic education in spite of their handicaps and short-comings.
