We have had three meetings over the last three weeks with the parents of the students and the Education Departments officials from the Ambato office. The government has been closing small schools all over the country and now it is our turn along with Inti Nan, another small school, down the hill and a little closer to the center of town.s
The last meeting was on Thursday evening and when the officials left we voted to march to Ambato with a petition to reconsider. The government is convinced that bigger is better and by closing all the small schools and integrating the students with the high schools, creating a K through 12 mega school will somehow be better.
I will keep you advised with pictures on Tuesday. We will hire a bus as we don't have the time to walk.
At a time when finances are really short, if you want to give us a hand, please find a donate button and give it a push.
By the way, we had a beautiful graduation ceremony last Saturday. Legia, Adriana and Kevin are on their way to Colegio.
