Hungary - Teachers demonstrate - April 30, 2016

The Tanítanék (‘I would teach’) movement, an informal association of teachers, is demanding an end to sweeping educational reforms introduced under the second and third Orbán governments. The movement called on the representatives of the government to meet. Should the government fail to attend their demands and reach an agreement Tanítanék will announce another two-hour demonstration similar to the one-hour protest that took place earlier. More than 15,000 citizens participated in demonstrations held across the country and all top ten high schools participated. The president of the Teachers’ Union announced that if the meetings with the government fail, they will call for a one-day strike.
