Nicaragua: A New Education Choice for Thousands of Young People

Thousands of adolescents and young people in Nicaragua, living in rural zones or in places with a hard access will have the chance to continue studying after they conclude their sixth grade, by a new mode of courses to be taught on Saturdays, which registration started Wednesday. A total of 17,250 young people will be able to accede this new studying formula in 367 schools, said Nicaraguan Education Minister Jose Treminio in a press conference.

Treminio said this is a revolutionary project to ensure the human right to cultural instruction and put adjusted solutions to the Nicaraguan national reality into practice.

Free education was restored in Nicaragua with the return of the National Sandinista Libreation Front (FSLN) to power, but poverty still forces thousands of adolescents to leave school to start working.

Registration for the courses will be opened until January 24 in 367 rural centers that will teach the secondary school classes, with differentiation characteristics included.

The Nicaraguan government will destine a budget of 100 million Nicaraguan cordobas (almost 4 million dollars) to ensure the teaching program.

A national census by the Ministry of Education showed there are 1,825 primary schools in far places, in which there are no possibilities to continue the secondary school studies, and with a registration of nearly 17,000 children and adolescents.
