Kid's school at prison in Santa Cruz

People go to prison in Bolivia simply for not being able to pay their debts. Nothing is for free there. They must sell crafts to pay for food and use of the bathroom facilities. Unless there is family able to care for them, their kids must go with them. This is the school they attend. It is surrounded by bobbed wire.
