With the start of the school year, the hustle and bustle in Cagayan de Oro City is now back.

Traffic jams everywhere, increased foot traffic in malls, packed fast food chains, long lines in school supply stores, students in uniform, parents dropping off their children at schools… as they say it’s back to normal.


It’s also the start of DepEd’s K to 12 Program…more enrollees in private schools. More students from the provinces transferring to the city.


More new business openings…more workers migrating… increased need for housing, etc… the list goes on and on. Can the city cope up with the increased migration from the provinces?
