Students dance in front of riot police as they march to protest against the slowness in the progress of the Chilean education reform in Santiago on April 19th, 2018. Last month, Chile's constitutional court struck down a law that would have banned universities operating for profit, dealing a blow to free tuition reforms brought in by former leftwing president Michelle Bachelet. In a 6–4 decision, the court's judges sided with a group of private universities that challenged the measure as unconstitutional.
