Students in Chile demand educational reforms

Protesters arguing system is driven by profit rather than learning, clash with police.

    Protesters demanding educational reforms have been clashing with police in the streets of Santiago, Chile's capital city, for three months.

    The government has offered a package of reforms, but it is not enough for the students, who say that the education system is driven by profit rather than learning.
