Students in Chile took to the streets of Santiago again last month protesting for reform of the country’s education system.
The BBC reports the students started a second wave of protests this decade in 2011, but the April demonstration was the first of 2013.
Mario Waissbluth teaches industrial engineering at Universidad de Chile. In 2008 he founded Educación 2020, a nongovernmental organization that wants to improve primary and secondary education in the country.
“Forty percent of the kids that go out to university don't understand what they read,” Waissbluth told KGOU’s World Views. “And they are grabbed by a university sector completely and fully deregulated, for profit, which abuses them to the point that we've had the explosions that we've had.”
