There are 352 children, mainly from Guerrero, who have received an education in one of the four educational centers for Migrant Children. The new center for educational attention is located in Badillo, Dolores Hidalgo, and has 18 students enrolled in preschool and elementary school.
The parents of the students are day laborers from Guerrero and come to work according to the agricultural cycle. To attend to them, and to keep the children from leaving classes, the Guanajuato Education Department has been in charge of providing them with service through the Specialized Centers. The new Migrant Center has now opened the doors to its new students who received packages of school supplies to help the family economy. Luz María López Quintero, a teacher hired for the agricultural cycle in Badillo de Guadalupe, was enthusiastic about meeting her students and having the opportunity to provide facilities to improve care for migrant day laborers. “It is gratifying to know that I can make a difference for them to continue with their studies during their stay in Guanajuato, ” she said.
