“ Mexican kids drop out in droves

…700,000 children in Mexico dropped out of school last year as recession-stricken families pushed kids to work, and a weak economic recovery will allow only slight improvement in the drop-out rate in 2010, a top education official said….. Poor families pull kids out of school to help put food on the table, and children often sell candy and crafts in the streets or work in restaurants.”
