    A teacher writes on a blackboard during class at a public school in Madrid, March 28, 2012. Spain will announce some of its deepest budget cuts ever on Friday, though evaporating growth prospects mean it is likely to fall short of what is needed to meet strict public deficit targets. Cuts in public education have sparked nationwide protests and more cuts are likely to be handed down by autonomous regions after the newly installed conservative central government presents its 2012 budget on Friday.
