Education Minister promises to increase teachers' salaries
At the year-end press conference in Kiev, Education Minister Dmitry Tabachnik promised wage rise for all workers of the educational segment.
"Wages will be increased for all education workers. Salary for the head of a kindergarten will grow by 650 hryvnas compared with 2013 year, top category teacher - by 602 hryvnas, senior researcher and associate professor - by 750 hryvnas on average," said Dmitry Tabachnik.
Education Minister also noted that in 2013 Ukraine printed a record number of textbooks in the history of its independence.
The question about how many textbooks pupils and students will get this year is still under discussion in the Ministry of Education as the state budget is not yet approved.
