Thoughts on the strike of Albanian students last winter

During the last months of the passing year, a rather important event has unfolded in my home-country of Albania. This event is none other than the student strike launched against the legislation passed by the Rama government with regard to third-degree education. This law aims to introduce a complete restructuring of the prevailing situation in the sphere of higher education, in favor of private educational institutions. The strong presence of students in the street, with the organization of many protests against the ministry of education, the government and the state, begins on March 4, 2018, and continued until February, with a small pause in their activity during the turn of the year.
