Nicaragua Delivers Payments to 55,000 Students

20100726-centralamerica-01The Nicaraguan Education Ministry is organizing the delivery of a one-time payment, called a “stimulus,” to more than 55,000 students who are finishing secondary school this year.

The payment, which is called the Christian Socialist and Solidarity Graduation Bond, will begin to be distributed in the first week of December, on the initiative of President Daniel Ortega, who said it would be a way of recognizing students’ and families’ efforts.

Rosario Murillo, coordinator of the Nicaraguan Council of Citizenship and Communication, said students would receive the bonds after passing their final exams and before graduation activities.

This year’s graduating class will have the opportunity of continuing their education through a program called Bachillerato Técnico Urbano, which will more than double in capacity, she said.

The government has appointed a national commission to examine new options for education in rural areas, she noted.
