Teachers to get pay rise

AS OF JULY next year Slovak teachers will get a pay rise of Sk1,600 (€40) per month Pravda daily wrote.

The increase will be financed from an extra Sk2.7 billion (€70 million) that the Education Ministry negotiated in the 2005 state budget talks. In total the education sector thus received Sk44 billion for next year.

However, despite the rise in wages, Slovak teachers still lag far behind their colleagues from the developed states, that are members of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Slovak teachers' wages are about one fourth of the OECD average, Pravda wrote.
