Hungary: Educators Have Submitted A Petition Calling For Immediate Reforms

The Hungarian teachers’ unions have sent a petition to the Ministry of Interior Affairs in Budapest, requesting that the Hungarian government immediately make necessary changes to the school system and increase the pay of teachers.

There have been demonstrations going on for quite some time now including kids, parents, and teachers.

The Ministry of Education has been abolished by the government, and its responsibilities have been transferred to the Ministry of the Interior, which is now being overseen by an individual who formerly served in the police force.

After the petition was handed in on Saturday, hundreds of people took to the streets to demonstrate in front of parliament.

It has been reported that Hungarian President Viktor Orban has said that he would only increase teacher pay in the event that the European Union (EU) releases funding that it has been withholding due to a dispute about the weakening of democratic institutions.
