After two years of protests, Prime Minister Rømer acknowledged that a comprehensive reform of both the quality and working conditions in the education sector needs to be negotiated with trade unions. Teachers have repeatedly called attention to falling scores in international comparisons, their uncertain labour contracts and the overdependence on retired teachers that impede the hiring and training of new teachers. Trade unions are hoping to open a dialogue on a national plan as soon as possible.
