Poland - Thousands of teacher jobs at stake - June 30, 2017

Some 9,400 teachers and school administrators will be out of work when a new school system is introduced on 1 September 2017, a unionist has claimed but the education ministry accused the union of giving 'false data'. A further 22,000 people are set to have their hours cut when the government does away with middle schools and replaces them with an earlier system of eight-year primary and four-year high school, said the head of the Teachers' Union. But the education ministry said in a statement that the changes aim to ensure that teachers keep their jobs. The planned sweeping changes have seen thousands of people take to the streets in protest since they were first floated in 2016.
