On Monday morning, hundreds of teachers and students formed a human chain around one of Hungary’s best schools, Fazekas Mihály elementary and high school in Budapest. They were protesting the conditions in education, especially the extremely low pay of educators. As one of the teachers who organized the protest told us: “If we did not stand up now, the example we would show our students would entitle them to make us badges which say: “I am a coward”.
