Paraguay: Literacy Programs To Arrive

After Paraguay president Fernando Lugo attended a celebration in Bolivia, in which it was declared that the country was free of illiteracy, he stated that the Venezuelan and Cuban teachers would soon arrive in Paraguay to do the same. Edgar Ruiz Diaz of Las Preguntas de Venerando [es] believes that Paraguayan teachers will resist the presence of foreigners, who will do their jobs.
