The Businesses of Education

Guatemala has a huge lack of public schools and to fill the void, private schools pop up everywhere.

Its is a very profitable business; school supplies are often sold on the premises and often too it is mandatory to buy them there.
For any event or activity, prices charged to students are very elevated.
For a graduation you paid Q700 ($85) for the ceremony even though it is performed at the school’s instalations and the establishment did noy spend a penny on anything.
Don’t be surprised if you have to pay an entrance fee to attend the ceremony.
