The Teachers' March

High school teachers, and some university professors, are on strike these days, demanding increased pay and benefits and an end to teacher evaluations.

Despite their vital work for society, teachers have relatively low pay and social status in many nations. And, for better or for worse, market forces play little role in fixing their salaries and work conditions.

These folks were marching this afternoon along Calle 26 near the Universidad Nacional.
