Guatemala’s Graduation Season

The Graduates by  Rudy Girón

I don’t recall if I have told you that Guatemala’s school year begins in January and end in October; have I mentioned it? Anyway, since the school year ends in October, this month you can see a lot of graduations and all the paraphernalia associated with graduations.

Another interesting fact about Guatemala’s educational system is the fact that after 12 years of school, 14 if we include párvulos (pre-school), graduates receive a vocational or junior career diploma such as primary school teacher, junior accountant, et cetera.

What other junior career diplomas are given after 12 years of education?
