Venezuela election: Students leaving country in droves

Venezuela’s national brain drain has seen students and professors leaving the country in unprecedented numbers.

The financial crisis is a major issue for Venezuelans who are struggling to survive on limited incomes in a country plagued by inflation.

The crisis is also shaping much of the debate and sentiment around the upcoming elections.

Many students say they won’t vote.

Once at the forefront of the political struggle, they’re now leaving the country in droves.
