Children here are in the habit of asking, because their teachers often don't show up, as hers didn't the day before. When Jose Pereira da Silva Municipal School does hold class, students spend just a little more than three hours a day with teachers who are woefully unprepared. "Around here, there are teachers who can't even read and write," principal Maria Olivia Andrade says.
