    Jóvenes Adelante Prepares For Re-entry: Part 2.
    Jovenes-Adelante-Prepares-For-Re-entry_-Part-2.jpg
    On Monday, May 24th nationwide student protests called for safer conditions before returning to classroom settings. Decrying the quality of online schooling while placing health and safety first, and given the unevenness of fundamental conditions in schools, a national federation of students called for herd immunity of 70% before general return to class settings.
