Spain's schools on strike over education reform
21 October 2013 @ 11:23

SCHOOL is (probably) out for kids across the country for most of this week as a national strike takes place in protest over the so-called 'Wert Law', an unpopular education reform which includes massive grant cuts for university students.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (October 22, 23 and 24) will see teachers and university lecturers downing tools and taking to the streets in a countrywide demonstration that the National Students' Union (SE) says is 'more necessary than ever'.

Parents should check with their children's schools in advance as to whether classes will be going ahead.
