Education Reform Protested

KIEV — About 100 Ukrainian students protested an unpopular education reform Monday and called for the resignation of the nation's education minister.

The students rallied on Kiev's central square and marched toward the government headquarters, chanting "Glory to Ukraine" and "Revolution."

They protested a government-sponsored bill currently being debated by parliament, which will limit students' self-governance and make education more expensive. They are also protesting plans to decrease the amount of time students spend learning the Ukrainian language and history and allow some schools to teach in Russian.
