Education push spreads nationwide, number of protesters grow

Santo Domingo.- Hundreds of people are converging and chanting in front of Congress to demand “4%” of the GDP for education and a higher budget for the Santo Domingo State University UASD.

Among the demonstrators figure teachers and UASD professors, who request more money for the university, where a lack of funds has unleashed an unprecedented crisis, with classes stalled since late last week.

The protests for a higher allocation for the education center have spread nationwide, and the number of its participants also grows.
