The Law of Education: Venezuela adopts bill giving Chavez more control

The Miami Herald reports:
The bill appears to open up education to political interference by the government. Among other provisions, it enshrines ``Bolivarian doctrine'' as the basis of education and gives a major role in education to the so-called ``communal councils,'' which are community assemblies mostly dominated by the ruling Unified Socialist Party of Venezuela.
