The student marches continue on a weekly basis and now some primary and secondary schools have stopped classes to show their support for the university students.
Our school has decided to remain open. There is some concern that there may be some backlash from other members of the community that we aren’t showing our support for the Educacion Gratis fight. Our personal opinion is that children have no place or reason to be in any protests, marches or demonstrations regardless of how peaceful they are.
As a precaution against any possible criticism from outsiders the school has given permission for students to wear casual clothes instead of their uniforms until further notice.
