Paraguay is a Young Country

Here is an interesting and important piece about the youth of Paraguay.  According to a recent study 66% of the Paraguayan population is under 30 years of age. Radio Free Europe recently put out a map that shows that 32% of the Paraguayan population is less than 14 years of age. This makes Paraguay one of the youngest countries in the world and ahead of most Latin American countries.  In South American only Bolivia at 35% and Guyana at 36% have younger populations. That presents a real challenge and opportunity for the country.  One particular challenge is education.  Given the educational disparities it will be difficult to provide all of the countries youth a 21st Century education.  If a family has resources, you can get a world class education.  Otherwise it is a challenge.
