ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Canberra’s high schools projected to seriously struggle to cope with surge in teenagers | ABC News” – below is their description.

Canberra’s college system may struggle to cope with a surge in teenagers, new analysis suggests.

A five-year forecast of enrolments has identified 19 public schools, most in the ACT’s north, where demand will approach or exceed the available teaching space.

Due to a quirk of Canberra’s current demographic cycle, most of this pressure will fall on facilities for year 11 and 12 students.

However, the Education Directorate says it is examining ways to increase space in crowded schools, and is confident students won’t be diverted outside their area.
