SCHOOL VISIT.-

Kindergarten children attend school from 9 - 12 hrs. and elementary school children attend school from 9 - 14 hrs; When children finalize kindergarden, they are supposed to only recognize letters and vowels when they finish this level; the rest of their education consists in entartainment actvities and learning about home-school connection. “Un Mundo Maravilloso” Kindergarden is the most representative kindergarden school in Angangueo town. Parents to these children live from local commerce among which local crafts based on Monarchs like painting, embroidery, pine needle basket-knitting and all kinds of souvenirs which tourists love to have; family carpentry workshops and fathers and older brothers working in big cities in different labor areas to provide their families an income, .are also alternate living options for the town. We can say that in all schools the Symbolic Migration program visits, all kindergarden and elementary children reach school by walking from home to the school facilities and a really minor percent have to take a local bus or van. On the contrary, 80-90% of the teachers arrive by car, since most come from surrounding towns or the only nearby city and a minor percentage come from really far away cities or states in our country, having been asigned a stable job and coming closer to their cities of origin as available chances are possible. Driving around our mountains is nowadays a pleasure, since what used to be trails all around years ago, have become, over the years, say, roads to drive one’s own cars, and of course, some keep as trails or even steep pathways. Arriving to Middle school and High school means taking a local van or bus, since there is one middle school for every 8-10 Elementary Schools and only three High Schoos in a ratio of 10 kilometers average around the Sanctuaries both because the demand for this level is not so high, —many students quit and prefer to start themselves in the working life—, but also because the state is not easily providing such educational level. In México, education from Kindergarden to University studies are all by free. Options for attending private education have grown dramatically in the last two decades, but not guaranteeing being at a real higher level than public education in most cases. In the Surroundings of the Monarch overwintering sanctuaries, public education is indeed the only option up to High school. University level is only available in big cities for us.
