After a strong earthquake delayed the start of classes by nearly three weeks, just 20 percent of the schools in Puerto Rico opened on Tuesday. Engineers have certified only 177 schools as safe to open after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck on Jan. 7. Another 71 schools are scheduled to start classes on Monday, according to Puerto Rican Education Secretary Eligio Hernández.
