Stepped 60-year milestone teachers who will lose their jobs as a result of the reorganization of the education system, will be able to claim unemployment benefit or an additional payment of 65% of salary until retirement age.

In 2017, the social cushions will require about 700,000 euros.

The Minister of education and science Karlis Sadurskis said that such opportunities can be used by about 160 teachers.

As reported, according to a new model of teacher salaries, which is scheduled to be introduced on 1 September, the smallest salary of the teachers will be 680 euros instead of 420 euros now. The Ministry of education and science has estimated that the lowest rate will increase by 62%.
