From the booklet, Visitors’ Guide to Quezon City (Division of City Schools, QuezonCity Edition)We are changing - fast. Our dynamos are the young people in our school system, inour training centers, in our entrepreneurial start-ups. Quezon City has the largestschool-age population in the Philippines. Many have called our City the educationcenter because we have the most number of training centers and tertiary educationalinstitutions in the country.Our City landscape will be dotted with more and more ICT companies, as they viewus as a cost-effective business location. Thus, our City government will work harder to bridge the knowledge and skills gap in information technology, especially amongour poor children -- through increased ratios of students to computers, more e-libraries and Internet laboratories, full operationalization of the IT-Centrex building,and expanded training programs for City school graduates to meet the requirementsof business process outsourcing companies.
