Schoolchildren across Greece were on Monday protesting against cutbacks in the education sector and the intensification of performance evaluation as part of reforms implemented by the leftist-led government.

Protesters were expected to gather outside the Education Ministry in the northern Athens suburb of Maroussi at 12 p.m.

Schoolchildren held a demonstration against the planned reforms in central Athens in late October.
