Contributed by: Don WinnerParents of students have insisted on closing the road in Juan Diaz. Students in groups with their parents rushed to the streets to demand payment of the "universal scholarship." So far the Ministry of Education (MEDUCA) has not made a statement about what has happened, but the police warn that if they don't open the road, they they will be arrested and taken to the police substation. The Finance Director of the IFARHU, Carlos Godoy, said these students are not entitled to collect any payment, because they failed subjects last school year, and the scholarships are to reward academic excellence. Similarly it was reported that this year there is a resolution that allows students who fail to charge payments, but that's starting from this school year, so students of 2011 do not enter the new standard. At about 10:54 am the parents and students reopened both ways. (Dia a Dia)
Editor's Comment: Can you believe they actually changed the rules to reward these idiots? Here it comes, the "handout" state. Mistake. Huge mistake. Massive.
