Many schools and kindergartens remained closed on Wednesday as teachers held street protests in several towns, blowing whistles and horns.
This is the latest in a string of strikes and protests by public sector workers in the small European Union country who are demanding higher salaries amid an economic recovery.
Talks between the teachers' union and the government collapsed Monday, reportedly because news of a possible deal fueled demands by other public sector unions.
Teachers want their salaries - around 920 euros ($1,100) a month for junior teachers and 1,200 euros ($1,470) a month on average - to be in line with those of other public workers.
