Klaireth Díaz is a 1st-grade teacher at Elías Toro School, one of the biggest public schools in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela.
Last year, she says, attendance was painfully low. Every day, of a class of 30 children at least 10 would be absent.

“This is what socialism is like in real life.”
Yep. Socialist utopia.
Could happen in the US.
When the workers own the means of production, but the government sets the price, the workers don’t work, and nobody except the government apparatchiks has any food.
With Capitalism, bread waits for people.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
There are very few socialists in reality.
And despite all this, I’m sure a big chunk of the population believes the BS that the children are fainting and suffering because of some US boycott or Capitalist plot.
Where is Hollywood?
I attended El Toro High school and can attest that hunger was rampant there, mostly around 11:30 am....
” Oh how awful! My socialist policies are hurting my fellow citizens. I will resign, and allow someone more competant to run the government so we can return to prosperity,” said no socialist ever.
Tell Soros to feed the children.
I’ll say it again. Bombard the country with MRE’S. Embarrass the government. Let them try calling it an act of war.
Great country that Venezuela....Almost as good as Cuba
Can we assume all the effing liberal ‘Foundations - from Bill and Hillary’s to the Tide Foundation’ aren’t doing squat to help starving children? No kickbacks - no help...
President Tells His Starving People: My Diet Gets You Hard, You Dont Need Viagra
I guess we know why their children ar fainting in school it all goes the parents first and the children get the scraps.
Could happen in the US.
Michelle already starved the children because she has a fat butt.
I fell sorry for the kids of Socialists for multitudinous reasons.
