Netherlands -Plea for influx of young teachers -January 01, 2014

As a shortage of primary school teachers is looming the trade union CNV says encouraging older teachers to retire early would free up space in schools for new graduates. While primary schools are currently shrinking, there will be a ‘guaranteed’ shortage of 2,000 teachers by 2017 with a wave of older teachers that are set to retire, the union says. The current shortage of jobs means fewer students are signing up for teacher training colleges and recent graduates are retraining for other jobs.
