Reading Comprehension -- Read the following information before answering the remainder of the questions:

Most of the people who live in Guatemala are poor. At least 80% of the population lives in poverty, and about one-third of those are considered to be living in extreme poverty. A person who is extremely impoverished often does not have a job, has little education, might be in poor health, and is fortunate to eat one time a day. Thus, well over 3 million Guatemaltecos are living in extreme poverty. Education can lead to a better life, but the school system suffers from lack of funding and low standards, and is also viewed with suspicion by much of the population. The largest percentage of the population is the indigenous poor, and many of them think that the school system is designed to erode their indigenous culture. Moreover, their children are needed to work in the fields, and thus even the children who are enrolled in school often miss classes or stop school altogether after completing only a few grades. It is estimated that the literacy rate among indigenous women is only about 30%. Another problem is that a good education is supposed to provide graduates with more opportunities and better jobs, however even when kids advance through the school system, very often they cannot find work afterward … thus, people in the community see these poor results and think, “Why should I even send my kids to school?”46 out of 51
