Poland -Teachers protest for better wages and working conditions -October 16, 2015

More than 15,000 teachers took the streets to protest against the actual education policy. The protesters demanded an increase in funds spent on education (in 2015, the percentage of GDP invested was of only 2.52 percent) and an increase in teacher’s wages. An increase in teacher salaries has been frozen for three years. Teachers demand financial recognition for the teaching profession and a 10% increase in wages.
