Education Demonstration in Madrid last Month Teachers in Madrid are planning three more days of strikes this week in protest at education cuts Last week there were massive demonstrations by teachers, parents and children through the streets of Madrid, Spain, against the cuts which will see jobs being cuts, teachers' teaching time being increased by two hours and the loss of many teaching assistants. The situation is exacerbated as the right wing regional administration gives tax breaks to parents who send their children to private schools - these tax breaks would more than cancel out the education cuts which are being made in public schools(see previous post) The new strikes are planned for the 4th, 5th and 20th October
