Teachers protest on edu'n reforms:Oxford
Hundreds of teachers marched through Oxford, protesting Michael Gove's education reforms. They were against the government changes to the education system.

Maximum number of schools across Oxfordshire were closed, as teachers from the NUT and NASWUT went on strike.

Also, speeches were given from teachers and parents, after which they marched from Bonn Square, down Queen Street, into Cornmarket, and down St. Michael's Street, saying "Michael Gove it's time to go."

Teachers who headed from south east were striking over pay row, pensions and working conditions. The assistants of Oxfordshire teachers travelled to London, to take part in the rally.

After going through the details of the strike held by teachers, NUT local secretary Gawain Little said "We are really pleased with the turnout today. It shows the strength of feeling from teachers and they care passionately about education."

However, teachers have expressed about their demands through a strong strike. Now, it's all up to the Government on how it reacts to the demands of the teachers.
