    Remote Amazonian Villages in Peru Lack Schools, Teachers


    Before dawn on school days, about a dozen Urarina children climb out of mosquito nets, dress and leave this tiny village for the muddy, nearly 90-minute trek to school in the nearest town.
    Messy at best, the trail becomes dangerous during heavy rains, when the students must balance on narrow logs to cross overflowing streams. Parents keep their kids home on those days, and some don’t enroll their youngest children at all because of the daily hazards, which include poisonous snakes and painful insect bites.
