Newsweek - - News - Ơ JOAQUIN SARMIENTO

Uni­ver­sity stu­dents staged a the­atri­cal demon­stra­tion to de­mand in­creased govern­ment fund­ing for higher ed­u­ca­tion on Oc­to­ber 31. Newly elected Pres­i­dent Iván Duque has pledged a fresh in­vest­ment of about $314 mil­lion, but stu­dents are de­mand­ing more; they say govern­ment spend­ing on pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties has not kept pace with boom­ing en­roll­ment.
