school take over

December 7, 2010 2:03am CST
Hi, in my country (Greece) students often take over their schools, using chains and locks and barricating the doors, to protest against the education system. This started with the take over of a university in Athens at 1967 to protest against the dictatorship. Yesterday had pasted two years after the murder of a student by a police officer and half and maybe more schools were closed by students. I was wondering, is this happening to other countries as well? Can students take over their schools and demand improvements to the education system or to protest against something?
