    Everyone knows what the government is doing to students. They are cuttingback on the teachers salaries, increasing the number of students per class andthe teachers working hours, curtailing rights and eliminating educational projectsfor students... Everyone knows what they are doing and everyone moans aboutall these measures, but are a few people are trying to stand up to thisgovernment s policies.

    Apparently, for students a strike is not a day for fighting against governmentcutbacks. It is a good excuse for sleeping in until eleven in the morning andwatching TV all day long while a few committed students shout and protest onbehave of all their schoolmates who do nothing and speak tongue in cheek.They may well think that this is a joke and that at the end of the day everythingwill pan out and nobody will suffer the consequences of these measures.However, these harsh measures are real and we must all stand up and becounted. Everyone must fight for his or her future.

    Jos ngelHave you learnt anything from yourstudents? In what way?Yes, I have. I have always learnt frommy colleagues, well, from everybody,

    in fact. When a student gives me aproject which is well-organized, tidyand original, I am really impressedbecause I think that I wouldnt havebeen able to do it so well, so clearlyand so tidily, tan salao y con chispawhen I was their age. Its rather like withthe drama group. I find it veryinteresting to see something beautifultake shape.

    Jos ngel

    Do you think exams are important?

    I think exams are an important part of any subject. Ifthere werent any exams, pupils would not study, butthe exams are not enough in themselves to make themlearn. The students need motivation, emotion and needto get involved in the learning process.

    Jos ngel

    What do you reckon students think of you?

    I dont know. I think that they believe that my subject isnot difficult to pass and as regards my personality well,they see me as a caring teacher who is a bit nuts.

    People at the IES Pedro de Luna say that the school is


    . Do you agree?

    I spend a lot of time here and I am very keen on thishigh school because I am very fond of it. Its true that Ishould probably spend less time here, but it is not asacrifice for me, its quite the opposite, in fact.

    Jos ngel

    Would you change anything in the educational system?

    Yes, I would. It is important to remember that ourlearning is very much related to our interests. It would bebetter to talk more openly about academic issues, but Iknow it is rather difficult to do so.

    Thank you, Jos ngel!

    You are welcome!

    The unemployment rate in Spain has been rising steadily over thelast two months. The mass media say that unemployment has risen to4.705.276 people. There are a large number of families in which bothparents have been unemployed for a long time and so cannot receivemonthly dole anymore.

    Engracia Hidalgo, who is the State Secretary for Employment, saidthat this months figures are better than those of last year.

    Heating in a lot of homes will become a luxury because a lot offamilies and pensioners wont be able to face the increase in taxes and thecuts in pensions as they need the money to buy the very basics.Unemployment among young people, is the highest in the European Unionand is even affecting those with third-level studies. This is the reason why alot of youths have decided to leave Spain and look for a job abroad. Withthe new labour reforms the Spanish government are trying to solve thisproblem but, so far, they have been unsuccessful. The only thing we can dois to wait for some months to see new data and decide if the measures arebeing effective or not.

    announced that next year the Christmas bonus will be paid to all civilservants.

    Moreover, an additional emolument will be paid in Septemberto all those working in the public service. This is due to the new policy thegovernment have adopted in order to deal with the economic meltdown.Instead of continuing with the measures of austerity and cutbacksrecommended by the European Union, De Guindos has decided to give aradical change to the Spanish economy. His idea is to solve the economicproblems by doing the opposite to what has been done so far withoutsuccess.

    Apart from the two new bonuses, the salaries will be raised. WhatDe Guindos has in mind is to increase the Spaniards purchasing powerwhich would lead to the creation of new jobs. Finally, De Guindos hasdeclared that in a few days they will study the possibility of decreasing VATso that businesses and the population at large would be able to buy andsell goods more easily.

    LETTERS TO THE EDITOR by Javier Asn Dear Sir,

    I should very much like to complain about a discotheque at 22 LopezStreet, Zaragoza.I am lodging this complaint about this nightclub which is in the heart of

    the city where families and elderly people live. Because of the incredibly loud music that goes on and on until late in

    the early hours of the morning there is a constant bustle of people outon the street and this area is fast becoming dirty and run down.

    The neighborhood watch association is collecting signatures demandingthat the night club comply with the rules and regulations laid down bythe City Council.

    So, I very much hope that this letter will have an effect and the CityCouncil will take responsibility for the above-mentioned problem.

    Yours sincerely, Javier Asin
