A stu­dent

is seen out­side Par­lia­ment in cen­tral Athens yes­ter­day, dur­ing a rally against ed­u­ca­tion re­forms. Thou­sands of mid­dle- and high­school stu­dents marched in Athens and Thes­sa­loniki to protest changes pro­moted by the con­ser­va­tive-led ad­min­is­tra­tion, which they say will in­crease the need for ex­tra classes at pri­vate tu­ition cen­ters. Ac­tion was or­ga­nized mainly via Face­book and other so­cial me­dia. Mean­while, sit-in demon­stra­tions have par­a­lyzed about 30 per­cent of schools in Western Greece, while more than 45 schools re­mained closed in Crete.
