Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A masked pro­tester lobs a petrol bomb at the Par­lia­ment build­ing yes­ter­day dur­ing a demon­stra­tion or­ga­nized by pupils in cen­tral Athens to protest planned re­forms to the Greek ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem and spend­ing cuts im­posed on schools as part of a broader belt­tight­en­ing pro­gram de­manded by Greece’s in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors. Cut­backs to the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor have re­sulted in the merg­ing of some schools with others and to lay­offs among teach­ers who have also taken to the streets in protest in re­cent months.
