LAST Thursday (9 March) saw the latest in a series of school strikes with pupils across the country having an unplanned day off. The strikes have been called by teachers unions and are in protest at the planned cuts to education budgets, despite government promises to the contrary. Although most schools will remain open teaching staff were urging pupils to stay away to show support for the strike. This was the case across the Valencian region where only a minority of children attended schools which on the day were largely adopting a childcare rather than teaching role due to the absence of teaching staff.
