Zihua Sailfest Schedule of Events

Thanks for posting your calendar of events here. I'm sure many of my readers are interested in attending.

I've had more than several local people recently ask me to ask you why you help build classrooms for the tiny schools mostly in areas invaded by squatters and why instead you don't help maintain and improve the larger schools such as Vicente Guerrero that needs rebuilding? The reason they ask is because perhaps you are unaware that locally there is a severe shortage of teachers and budgets for these smaller schools, and the situation is not expected to improve in the near future. Perhaps you recall I suggested to you many years ago the greater good would be better served by concentrating educational resources on fewer bigger schools where scarce resources could be pooled to provide better facilities for the students. Well now that is coming around to being the general thought, except of course by folks with interests in the squatter communities who of course all want a school in their colonia to meet the requirements for getting land titles.

In a related note, one of your historic supporters is currently a public functionary who is campaigning for political office. There was recently an article in a local newspaper criticizing Por Los Niños for allowing their organization to be used for political purposes. Just thought you should be aware. This is also something I mentioned to you several years ago.
