MANDAUE City College headed by Dr. Paulus Cañete is open to the possibility of reconciling with Mayor Jonas Cortes.
“I am open to reconciliation with Cortes, even if he will not recognize our school as long as he will respect us and will not make a move against our school,” Cañete told Cebu Daily News .
Cañete said that the MCC has transferred to a new and bigger location along H. Abellana Street in barangay Basak since September last year. The school has about 1,000 students and almost 200 on-the-job training students. He said they find it funny that the city government wants to close their school down when they just want to participate in molding students to become better citizens and to have a degree and land a good job.
However, Cañete did comment on the legal status of their school as the issue is now subject to a court case.
Despite the challenges that come their way, Cañete said his school continues to operate with a faculty of 20 and a new campus.
The city government-owned MCC has a campus in the Mandaue City Cultural and Sports Complex.
Cañete broke away from the Mandaue City government-owned school with the same name in 2007.
