Under a law passed in December 2010, all schoolchildren in Bolivia must learn Quechua, Aymara or some other indigenous language, as well as Spanish and a foreign language. The country, according to president Morales, should respect and embrace local cultures and indigenous people. To prove that he is serious about this issue, Morales also ordered the construction of three new universities, specifically for indigenous students in rural areas. The indigenous inhabitants of Bolivia voted him into the presidential office.
