Strike action in education
Tenerife is likely to see education protests next month.
The State Platform for Public Schools has announced a day of strike action in Spain on October 24th and wants students, teachers, parents and other staff to join in.
Trade unions intend to protest about education reform, increased college tuition fees and cuts in scholarships.
This is the second General Strike called jointly by students, teachers and parents following the first in May.
The Students’ Union has separately arranged a “Week of Fights” in defence of public education, including a strike in colleges and universities from October 22nd to 24th.
