In the state of Karnataka, India, at least 3,000 private school workers, including teachers, flocked to the streets to protest the government’s decision to cut tuition fees.
Private school employees gathered in the state capital, Bengaluru, and marched to Freedom Park to protest the federal government’s decision to cut private tuition fees by 30 percent this year.
While more than 3,000 private school employees participated in the march, which included more than 10 private schools in Bengaluru, there were major disruptions in the city traffic due to the protest.
The protesters demanded the cancellation of the reduction decision and “grant” support for teachers.
Many private schools in the state also suspended education today in response to the government’s decision.
