Gulyas hopes for fundamental changes in teachers’ wages

The head of the Prime Minister's Office expressed hope on Friday that teachers' wages will undergo radical changes in the next 18 months or two years.

Gergely Gulyas told a year-opening event of Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) in Szekszard, in southern Hungary, that teachers should receive wages that reflect the importance of their work.

“I think we are closer to this than anybody would think and a breakthrough may occur within months, resulting in significant wage increases,” he said.

Over the past decade, a record number of schools were revamped, the number of places in creches increased to 62,000, and many kindergartens underwent a revamp, he said.
