(No Ratings Yet)

During this school year, following the principle of «money after students» teachers’ salaries will be added and average of 740.52 LVL, which is nearly 62 LVL more than last year, reports political initiative and development department of Education and Science Ministry (ESM).

The ESM performs calculation and payment of targeted grants in education institutions in addition to regular teachers’ salaries and obligatory State social insurance payments based on the number of students.

Even last year’s student number reduction tendency is present this year as well, the number of five-year-old children has increased – by 1 207. The number of children that require special education programs also increased – by 627, as well as in programs of in-depth education – by 312, such programs also have an increased expenses coefficient.

This is why, when performing calculations, it was concluded that an additional 568 004 LVL are necessary to ensure larger financial support for teachers that perform individual work with their students, work with talented children and perform other additional duties.

The ESM has prepared and submitted a request, scheduled to be reviewed during tomorrow’s (September 25) government meeting. Shortly after the government’s decision, the ESM will inform municipalities about their designated payment amounts and will perform the said payments in advance.

As it was previously reported, starting from September 3, 200 961 pupils will start their long road in education at Latvian general education institutions and private schools.

Compared to September 1, 2011, the number of pupils has decreased by 5 479, and by 15 346 compared to September 1, 2010.

    c’est une information intéressante pour Anna MUTORE citoyenne enseignante en langue à la faculté de Riga. En 2009, elle prenait un congé sabbatique pour, disait elle dans le journal le Monde : “je ne veux pas travailler plus pour gagner moins”; Elle a mis à profit ce congé pour soustraire beaucoup d’argent à des français.

    Cette criminelle a été obligée de rembourser 50.000 € en Juillet 2011, Nous attendons le remboursement du solde, plusieurs dizaines de milliers d’euros.

    La Lettonie devrait enseigner la morale à l’école.

      Ce n’est certainement pas avec son congé sabbatique qu’elle a pu acheter son appartement à Riga et une voiture Lancia. Ah Anna MUTORE, ex Baskevica, tu as trompé tout le monde bien au delà des frontières lettones, il est vrai que ta nationalité lettone tu l’as eu en 2005 seulement….c’est une insulte pour toute la LETTONIE.

      Et ta thèse à la Sorbonne sur la majuscule distinctive ? es tu certaine qu’elle a été écrite par toi ?? Nous savons que non.

      La morale Anna MUTORE !! la morale et la dignité. Surtout quand tu prétends faire partie de la franc maçonnerie. Qu’as tu appris ?
