Arab-like spring in education?
universities were reopened after the calling off the strike of non-academic staff. Less than one week later, the universities are closed again, and this time around the academics are on strike (I am told that if the demands of the non-academics are not met within forty-five days, they would go on strike again). As a final year undergraduate, already in his mid-twenties with a sorry excuse of an income, I find these developments quite frustrating.
