Schools out for striking pupils in Malaga

WHILE most children went back to school this week, 26 pupils in the small village of Genalguacil came out on strike.

The children at the Colegio Publico Rural Almanzara are demanding an extra teacher and, with the support of parents, they launched a protest outside the school gates.

They insisted they will not return to the classroom until a third teacher is supplied.

Normally the school employs three teachers but this year they only have two due to the low number of students.

Now, parents of the children are set to meet Junta officials to find a solution to the problem.
