Greek students, teachers protest planned education reform

first_imgThousands of university students and instructors marched in Athens and the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on to oppose a draft education reform bill that will include the policing of university campuses. About 5,000 protesters took to the streets of central Athens in a largely peaceful march Thursday, while about 1,000 people demonstrated in Thessaloniki.

Lawmakers are expected to vote on the bill next week.last_img read more
