In Honduras, education is a privilege.
Honduras suffers from high levels of poverty and violence, with one of the highest murder rates in the world. This violence disproportionately affects young people, especially those from poorer sectors of society. The roots of these issues are complex and multi-faceted, including rapid urbanisation, legacies of colonialism, and macro-level socio-economic and political structures. In the video below, teachers and students from an urban public high school in Honduras discuss their experiences regarding how poverty affects education.
