January 21,2015   By:Xinhua

ULAN BATOR, Jan.21, 2015 -- Mongolia will build 21 secondary schools with a Chinese grant of 300 million yuan ($50 million), local reports said Tuesday.

The new schools, built with one model design, would help reduce burdens on existing schools, where students are studying in three shifts, and upgrade old school buildings.

In the 2014-2015 school year, there are 22 schools that have three shifts in Mongolia, 21 of which are located in Ulan Bator. Also, 26 secondary schools in the country need to be upgraded.

Mongolia has dire needs for new school and kindergarten buildings. Many of the existing buildings are old and can't accommodate increasing number of students.
