As stated today after meeting with Batna Minister of education and science Karlis Sadurskis, the specified amount will be required in addition to those already provided for in the budget of 27 million euros.

This amount is not yet included teachers of pre-school education, said Sadurskis.

Batna developed an alternative model of teacher salaries with the participation of the Latvian trade Union of education and science and the Latvian Association of education managers.

The model stipulates that the teacher will pay for all his responsibilities, but at the same time the salary will depend on the number of pupils. The model is based on a 40-hour working week.
