What can be said is that, just as they control most of the neighborhoods of Tegucigalpa, street gangs rule over most public schools in the capital.Gangsters are students and students are gangsters, as are some of their parents.Location: Central America, bordering the North Pacific Ocean, between Guatemala and Honduras Capital: San Salvador Climate: tropical; rainy season (May to October); dry season (November to April); tropical on coast; temperate in uplands Population: 6,125,512 (2014 est.)
