Schools kept in suspense

Schools in Hungary will start the forthcoming semester in suspense about the regulatory and financial environment, business daily Napi Gazdaság said in its Saturday issue. The number of dismissals that will soon become necessary due to reorganization will become public only in October, meaning that some institutional realignments are likely to interrupt the semester, Napi reported.

Most of the educators have to face a reduction of their salaries, the paper said citing Istvánné Galló, the head of the pedagogues' association. Also, the worrisome financial situation of municipalities that maintain local schools only increases the insecurity of the system, head of the Association of Hungarian Local Governments György Gémesi told the paper. The government’s vision for the reform of Hungary’s education system would be made public this autumn and will be implemented in 2012, the paper added.
