Teachers hold 24-hour strike on Monday

The Secondary Education Teachers’ union federation (OLME) and the Greek Primary Teachers Federation (DOE) have declared a 24-hour strike for Monday, October 10.
They have also scheduled a rally at 11.30 and a march to the Parliament. In their announcements, the federations point out that the Education Ministry, with the procedures of internal and external evaluation, aims “at the dissolution of the public school”.
They also accuse the ministry of denying the dialogue, “lying, that the teachers have no proposals”.

The federations speak of “a profound anti-education policy, which completely changes the structure and content of education”, while among other things “creates conditions of tension and pressure on students, as well as their stigmatization from an early age”.
