    Bridge failure affects traffic between Puerto Plata and Sosua

    This bridge has been in disrepair for ages. The traffic to and from the airport from Puerto Plata on a daily basis is consistent and voluminous. Large buses pass daily and yet it seems as if it was decided somewhere to just wait until there is a collapse or near calamity before doing anything...

    Ministry of Education launches English as a second language program in public schools

    With all due respect, once again the intention is good but the action is suspect. Already many have commented on what is universally accepted. That is, start language as early as possible.

    Have some students lost the habit of going to school?

    I have only lived here for 22 years and in all of those years it seems that education is a passing thought. It is sad to think that the injured parties in the education fiasco are children. Whenever you look at progressive countries you will find a stable and progressive education system. It...

    ADP president insists on boycotting in-person learning at public schools

    I believe the school system has already lost a year of learning. Remote learning for children is not practical for the majority of students. The virus will be with us for a long time. Learn to adapt or fall further behind. Require students and teachers to be vaccinated and use masks. The school...

    Ministry of Education accepts graduates of Excellence Program

    Another example of inefficiency on the part of the government. Think of the lost time and money trying to fill teacher vacancies because so many teacher failed a qualification test but students that graduate from a program of Excellence in Teaching aren't qualified. Now they are suddenly...

    TSA rejects appeal against resolution requiring presentation of vaccination card in public plac

    My question is going to be how can a bank refuse entry to an account holder that doesn't have THE CARD? The person would be denied access to their money.
