[PHOTO] Standard Temporary Central School in Batangas Town

Because making public school education available to the general population was among the priorities of the American colonial government, it goes without saying that the administration also tasked the Bureau of Public Works with job orders for the construction of school buildings all over the country.

The bureau apparently had standard architectural designs for a variety of public works projects such as local government buildings, hospitals and schools, among others.

Below was one constructed in the then town of Batangas, capital of the province, a standard temporary central school.
