Due to reform schools in the Ukraine will reduce rates of 3.8 thousand teachers. Most of them supporting redistribution (consolidated) schools.Some rates will maintain a smaller workload. Another 1.4 thousand rates abolished altogether, 700 of them are retired teachers, and the remaining 700 - workers nepensiynoho age.
"Local authorities now specify how many of these rates currently filled. Clearly, release teachers - a painful process. People who work on the 700 ponds released, will deal with employment centers on retraining, social benefits and finding jobs. But we are aware that the number of children from 1995 to 2013 (before the annexation of Crimea and early ATO) decreased by 43% and the number of teachers - only 15%. It is clear that these teachers are the main protest group against supporting schools and optimization ", - said Minister of Education and Science Lily Grinevich.
From September 1 in Ukraine will take effect 134 basic schools.
"There pidvozytymut children from other settlements. This school, with branches that doobladnuyut and how purchasing school buses. It allocated 200 million UAH for retrofit and 600 million for buses - is part of our budget. Part of the funds must add local budgets. The process is quite difficult - because it should vote for city councils, not all are willing to degrade grade school, "- said the Minister.
