One Year Out From Hurricane Maria, Full Recovery Still Elusive

Maria Torres, husband Jose Cruz and daughter, Gladys Cruz-Torres, from left, sit in another daughter's home last fall after their home in Puerto Rico was damaged by Hurricane Maria. "This hit us hard".

"Hurricane Maria may be a year old, but the effects of the storm compounded with intentional negligence from Congress, FEMA and other agencies have spent the last year turning it into a man-made disaster impacting thousands of lives", Marin said in a written statement. The money will be used to fix and rebuild homes, relocate people and help them obtain property titles if needed.

"They saved five dogs that were drowning", she said of the rescue effort after Florence hit, adding that she feels Puerto Rico didn't get the same treatment.

It's against this background that the most widespread, controversial education reform efforts in Puerto Rico are playing out.

"The point is for people to have a good time", Banuchi said.
