Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board received the final word from the Department of Education's management team during last night's meeting that all public schools will open on time. The board however, raised concern throughout the meeting about the 14 points of the Adequate Public Education Act and what needs to be done to prevent any of the facilities from being shut down this year.

GEPB member Mary Gutierrez expressed her frustration, saying, "I do have a problem sometime and it'll be interesting come Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, how many students are going to be in a cafeteria without a teacher. I know each year the bathrooms not working, textbooks; I have a lot of concern."

The board was given the greenlight from all principals that all public schools will open on August 10 - next week.
