Toelichting (Engels) Catbalogan is a medium-sized city (103,897 inhabitants, NSO 2015) in the Philippines with rich farmlands. Nonetheless, 80% of the agricultural products that Catbaloganons consume are imported from elsewhere. Catbalogan faces challenging performance indicators for both junior and senior high schools, with a participation rate of 66%, a dropout rate of 4% (school year 2014-2015) and a vast number (10,500) of out-of-school youths (2015 Literacy Mapping). The combination of these agriculture and education statistics inspired the Schools Division Superintendent of the Department of Education in July 2017 to lead the implementation of an innovation project: the Catbalogan City Agro-Industrial School, commonly known as CCAIS.
