Puerto Rico's debt could shut down schools

Puerto Rico's debt - amounting to more than $72bn - could have adverse effects on schools, pensions and healthcare.

    Creditors are expecting a response from the government of Puerto Rico after it defaulted with debt amounting to more than $72bn.

    It is expected the government will restructure the debt, but some economists have suggested closing schools, raising taxes and firing teachers.
