Μια τέτοια μεταρρύθμιση ήταν μεταξύ των λόγων παρα λίγο να αντρέψουν τον Τσάβες το 2003.
Να δούμε αν αυτή που δοκιμάζει τώρα, θα έχει καλύτερη τύχη.
Venezuelan police have fired teargas to stop thousands of protesters against a new education law from breaking past a security cordon in the capital Caracas.
Health officials said dozens of people were treated for minor injuries.
Rallies for and against the law, which passed last week, have been held for over a week. Last Friday's protests also met a tough response from police.
Elsewhere in the capital on Sunday, thousands of Chavez supporters held a counter-rally.
They say the new law will give everyone equal access to education, regardless of their economic position.
The government says changes to the law - which among other things, broadens state control over schools and makes the education system secular - were long overdue. Βut the Catholic Church and university authorities in Venezuela have opposed the law.
Analysts say parts of the law are open to interpretation and that it will only become clear how it will be applied once students return from their summer break. The law requires schools to base their teaching on "the Bolivarian Doctrine" - a reference to the ideals of 19th Century independence hero Simon Bolivar, such as Latin American unity and national self-determination.
