Poland - Protest against education reform - October 31, 2016

The teacher union Związek Nauczycielstwa Polskiego (ZNP) organised teacher protests in 17 cities all over the country, including in Warsaw in a protest against the draft education reform. The draft reform envisages to abolish lower secondary (gymnasiums) and the extension of primary school education from six to eight years and upper secondary education (lyceums) from three to four years. ZNP reported that the overall education time would be shortened by one year. The introduction of eight years of primary school teaching would result in teachers’ having to work in two shifts. It could lead to massive costs which would be allocated to administrative measures rather than to the modernisation of classrooms.
