Nicaragua Education !

I learned yesterday that Nicaragua schools are extremelly poor. The moms of Nicaragua make the lunches for the kids at the schools. I also learned that the kids in public school have to wear uniforms, and walk to school. If the kids don't have a pencil or paper, they can't go to school. The teachers don't get paid, and if a kid wants to have a copy of a test they have to pay money. The kids have to take chairs to school or sit on the floor if they are late. Also most classes have 20-60 kids in each class. Also I learned that parents can only afford to send maybe two kids to school. The Nicaraguan people only made about $200 dollars a year!
