The High-Performance Schools (COAR) serve to attract high-performing schoolchildren and give them a quality public education. At the national level there are 25 of these exemplary centers, however the service needs to be decentralized.

In this sense, the Ministry of Education proposed this year to launch five COARs in Tacna, Moquegua, Arequipa, Cajamarca and Apurímac. The investment amounts to 100 million soles in each school.

The construction works will be carried out by the Mexican capital company Southern Peru, under the modality of Works for Taxes. The company assumes the investment, completes the work and recovers what it spent from the taxes it must pay to the treasury, generally Income Tax.

This program extends to regions where the company operates or has projects in its portfolio: Apurímac and Arequipa, said the Social Development Manager of the Mexican transnational, Felipe González González.

The works of the COAR Tacna and Moquegua are already underway. The next COAR to be launched will be in Arequipa in the Majes district. Like the previous ones, it will have a capacity for 300 third, fourth and fifth year high school students. The file has already been concluded, it is being evaluated by the National Educational Infrastructure Program (Pronied). It should take six months.

What is the advantage of the Works for Taxes mechanism? The execution of the file and construction is delivered to the private company and this takes two years. When the State assumes these projects, the work is trapped due to deficiencies in the file and discrepancies with the company that won the tender.

Southern Peru also carries out works for taxes at the National University of San Agustín where it builds laboratories.

The expectation

Tía María is a copper project in the province of Islay where a group of farmers is opposed for fear of alleged contamination. Felipe González ratified that the company still maintains the expectation of carrying out the work and for this they are working on social relations with the areas of influence (Tambo Valley).
