Teachers, students protest education reform bill


Teachers and students protest on Tuesday outside Parliament where MPs were debating an education bill which Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis described as a "bold and cohesive set of reforms that liberate education from the suffocating control of the ministry" while establishing the evaluation of universities and linking their funding partially to performance. As well as opposing evaluation and performance-linked funding, protesters object to plans to grant degrees from private colleges the same status as degrees from universities. [Alexandros Vlachos/EPA]
