DK TO INVESTIGATE NUMBER OF MISSING TEACHERS IN HUNGARIAN EDUCATION

 

The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) will write to all school district heads to find out how many teachers are missing from Hungarian public education, with a view to working on a solution, a lawmaker of the leftist party said. Gergely Arató said all sectors of public education suffer from a shortage of teachers. “This is not unfortunate happenstance,” he said. “It is the responsibility of the government which stripped teachers of their independence and humiliated them at every turn.” Young teachers are expected to teach children for as little as 130,000-140,000 forints a month (EUR 399.5-430.2), he added.
