Education has now a hard time in trying to prepare students to get a better life and mainly this means a lot of trouble to all the nation.

What’s going on now?

More than 51,000 students are leaving classrooms and dropping out of schools of all levels, this this equivalent to a 40% of the student population (2.2 million students), specially elementary schools have the highest number with more than 30,000 children that dropped out of school.

What are the causes?

One of the reasons is the weak government that is right now, they can’t handle the situation and this causes more problems to the the secretary and the minister of education. Another reason is that many homes are disintegrated by economical issues as well migration of their parents as well many children. When parents leave their children with a familiar they don’t feel the motivation or pressure for going to school. Another reason is the problems with gangs specially when they are disputing territories, recruiting members that result in student and teachers deaths, resulting in a 25% of the students that drop out, stop going to school, leaving and migrating to another country.

What can we do to improve the situation?

Changing or strengthen the government to make it deal principally with the gang issue as well the economical issues, and make a better system of education, lower the costs of education resources, hire new teachers that can at least handle the situation with the students, improve the security in classrooms.

    It’s unfortunate that so many students in Honduras are dropping out of school. I hope that the government grows stronger soon.

    Unfortunately, Central America would never have an excellent education because gangs have more power than government. I would like that students from Central America one day have the same education that I have in United States.

    This reminds me when I was in my country. Is very difficult to finish school because many people in Honduras don’t have enough money to have a child in school. In Honduras you don’t have many resources like here in United State.Therefore in Honduras you have to spend money in books,pencil,erase,etc. and its hard to go to school for economics resources. There are so many poor people they don’t finish school that is why they don’t get a good job, theses people do not have the money to have a child in school. Also, the government should help more theses people.

    It’s really sad but true that countries like Honduras, hangs have more power than the government in those countries. I think that it would be better if they make more strict laws about those people that are part of any gang. the government should care more about the people of the country that only want to live in peace and to have a good education for their children.
