Dear Editor,

While perusing the Guatemalan newspaper La Prensa Libre, I came across this article that the Guatemalan Ministry of Education is instructing schools to use – a map of that country showing the country of Belize as a part of Guatemala.

If you notice, all the other countries have solid lines defining the borders, but Belize has a dotted line reinforcing the point that we are a part of Guatemala. They have included a caption stating that “the territorial dispute is pending resolution” .

While we are here talking about education on this Guatemala issue, our neighbors are busy indoctrinating another generation with the concept, “Belice es nuestro”.

Where is this indoctrination in our schools? Truth be told, patriotism is a function of indoctrination, and I would have to say Guatemala is way ahead of us in that department.
