The ever problematic nature of drug cartels and the danger they present to innocent civilians in Mexico have now led to children being taught in school how to do their best to evade bullets fired during shootouts involving the cartels. This is not the first and only time children have been targeted. As Cubachi writes, "In Juarez, Mexico, right near the US Border, two extortionists threatened teachers with burning the school to the ground if the teachers don’t hand over their bonuses." Fifteen hundred schools in the Juarez region have suspended their courses out of fear.
