Kids go to school to learn, all over the world.
This Monday morning is a new week at a local primary school. Some kids are smiling while others are not so happy, but most children go to school and are introduced to what is necessary and proper to become functioning adults.
Cursory research states that 2/3 of the population of Belize are teens or younger, education is compulsory to 14 years, 70% of the teachers have professional training , a sizable minority of children don’t go past primary school,. The best schools are run by the Catholic church.
Education opens futures, but the future here points to well financed foreigners with MBA’s who take calculated risks, have financing, study trends, and use money to make money.
Poverty, limited finances, and lack of education are all legs of the same creaky stool.
Getting smart can get you a better seat at life’s table, but going to school is not always a bowl of cherries.
