Court puts stop to 'Durlock classrooms' in City school

Judge Elena Liberatori, chief of the Fourth Procedural Court of the City of Buenos Aires, has approved the injunction put in place by legislator Virginia González Gass to stop the construction of 'Durlock classrooms' in the corridors of the Bernasconi Institute school, on the grounds that the building is a national Historic Monument.

The classrooms, which consist of lightweight metal frames filled in with plasterboard, had been installed in the wider hallways of the school as a method of combatting a lack of student spaces, to wide opposition from parents, teachers and unions.

The installations, as well as the use of portacabin classrooms, had been condemned by some groups as an insufficient response to problems with school inscriptions, which have left thousands of children without a place in 2014.

Legislative sources informed that Liberatori upheld the injunction presented by González Gass due to the fact that "any change that needs to be made in the Bernasconi should be referred for consultation by the City Government to the National Commission of Museums and National Monuments and Historic Places, responding to the Culture Secretary of the Presidency of the Nation; something which did not happen."
