When the school starts again

When the school starts again

Is there any other country in the world where the schools start in January? Please excuse my ignorance and inform me if you know any other country with a similar system.

These days, schools are starting in Guatemala, and it is possible to see its reflections at the markets, where they started to sell school supplies. Among all the school supplies, these pencils and pencil sharpeners with animal figures captured my attention.

    Now is the time when you remember that you were supposed to save some of your Christmas bonus for school supplies and uniforms.
    I think that the school year is related to the harvest season. Corn is harvested in November, plus many families migrate to the coast during that month to harvest sugar cane.

      @Cristina and James, thanks for the info. Didnt know them. Especially the relationship between harvest season and school semesters.
