CHILE : Justice Minister Ribero Resigns Over Education Conflicts.


      Some are calling the resignation of Justice Minister Teodoro Ribera...a victory for the nation's large, vocal, active and often violent student movement.
      Ribera was revealed to have close ties to a private university.
      Since March 2011...tens of thousands of students have marched over 2 dozen times against Chile's expensive...for-profit...'diploma mills'...subsidized by the government...but providing worthless educations.
