Portugal - Lack of job security for teachers - March 31, 2016

A report of the teachers’ trade union Fenprof reveals that out of 200,000 teachers, 53,158 are working in a ‘precarious situation’. The union highlighted some cases of teachers in higher education receiving wages of 500 euro and contracts of only four months. Insecurity is not only a problem for teachers; it is also a social problem and affects the organisation of schools and the quality of education.
