Families do not even have the means to purchase the basic items necessary to attend school, which, although compulsory, is nearly immediately discontinued. The considerable distance that separates the rural areas from school centres also adds to the difficulty children experience to attend them, because they sometimes have to walk even two hours to reach their school.
The situation concerning secondary education is even worse, since there are no high schools outside Aiquile, which means that in order to attend them, the adolescents from the rural areas would have no choice but to move to the provincial capital, paying a fee families cannot afford.
