MILAN, Italy, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Teachers graded homework at a Milan, Italy, shopping mall in a protest against budget cuts and longer work weeks, officials said.

About 100 teachers gathered at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping area Friday for the protest, during which they marked students' homework with red pens, Italy's ANSA news agency reported.

The teachers were protesting a government decision to extend their work week to 24 hours, as well as austerity measures that have cut school budgets, and the lack of job security involved in some teacher contracts.
