For the fourth time this month, parents were asked to accompany their children to school and wait for the announcement if classes will push through that day. Its the teacher's way of protesting the "school reforms" that law makers finally approved yesterday.

Last Friday, 24th of October, was the only Friday we were not asked to go with our kids and Lukie was insisting its 'scopero'(strike). I calmly told him that there was no note sent by their teacher so there's nothing to worry about. Still he went with the school bus so preoccupied.
