First day of school, first day of school!!

apparently not for everyone in Bolivia. many teachers in rural areas haven't received their pay since May and have refused to return to school for the start of the new year. some urban teachers are on strike as well. maybe the fact that winter vacation was cancelled had something to do with it. even though the protesters (who were demanding the nationalization of the country's natural gas reservces) led by evo morales went home after president mesa resigned, the new president still has his work cut out for him.

hopefully no one will get kidnapped and forced to wear a dunce cap (as did the vice minister of education last year) ...
