Plan introduced this education methodology back in 1999 in state schools in rural Guatemala. The concept of active schools is to train teachers to teach mixed school levels in an participatory way. In the majority of schools in rural Guatemala, there are several school levels in one same class. Plan provides the teacher training and school materials. There are now 350 Active Schools in rural Guatemala, teaching 3,500 children. Children are taught in both indigenous Q'chi and Spanish. The school we filmed was in the district of Alta Verapaz. The story is told by a couple of students and the school head teacher.

Hundreds of decommissioned school buses from the US are driven south to Guatemala every month. They are repaired, repainted, and made roadworthy to transport millions of people across the country. These upcycled buses haul millions of people to work every day and are re-done in such a way that they are able to carry roughly double a number of people than these buses to children in the US.

Since the 16th century when Spain colonized Guatemala, Spanish was imposed as the official language and became the sole language taught in schools. Through UNICEF's teacher program, Guatemalan students begin school in their native tongue and are gradually introduced to Spanish. By the end of primary school, students are fluent in Spanish and ready for the outside world. UNICEF is committed to bilingual education because we believe that every child has the right to education in their native tongue. In this video, you follow a young girl, Monica, who is currently learning in both Spanish and Cakchiquel in school. "Every child needs an opportunity to develop their potential, otherwise we might lose them forever," -- Teresa Chumil, Elementary School Teacher. UNICEF is committed to biling...

I created this video to contribute to the 2012 Colegio Americano de Guatemala Teacher Talent Show, and to commemorate the adventure of walking to school with Phil for three years. Everybody thought we were crazy for walking to school. Hopefully this video will demonstrate that there is really nothing to be scared of.
