U.N. Sponsors Alternative School In Argentina
In Argentina, an innovative school is educating children who have dropped out from the official school system by teaching them valuable work skills. Many of these children would otherwise become street children or join the ranks of over a million underage workers in a country already suffering economically. The school, assisted by the UNICEF, teaches both academic lessons and practical work skills, from car mechanics to spectacle frame manufacture. The income from these products helps fund the school, which receives no state aid.
