Argentina students decry apathy

Students march against deteriorating quality of education in schools and universities.


    Students in Argentina have been protesting over the poor quality of education.

    They say the government is neglecting its schools and universities, once viewed as the best in Latin America.

    The protests come on the anniversary of the kidnapping and assassination of secondary school students during the military rule in the 1970s.
