Students in Chile protest over slow education reforms
Text size Aa Aa

Students in Chile have again protested in Santiago against the slow progress of the centre-left government’s education reforms.

They complain that President Bachelet failed to consult them and has her priorities wrong. They want her to focus on public education rather than targeting for-profit institutions.

The aim is eventually to introduce free university education.

There were isolated clashes but the relatively small protest was mostly peaceful.
