Czech Republic -Teachers union on tour against cuts -September 4, 2012

The school workers’ union has announced to kick off the school year with a tour around the country to discuss the adverse effects of the cut backs on the quality of education. Amongst others, salary increases promised by the government have been halved and subsidies for aids for first-grade pupils have been cut.  The ‘Tour for the salvation of education, schools and culture’, scheduled for September and October, includes public discussions and concerts. The news of national cuts was followed by more bad news, when it became clear the country would miss out on EU funds for educational programs due to project mismanagement.
