Bulgarian PM Pledges Higher Wages for Teachers
The average monthly wage of Bulgarian teachers will be increased in 2014 from the current BGN 720 to BGN 778.
The news was announced Thursday by the President of the Syndicate of Bulgarian Teachers, Yanka Takeva, cited by Darik radio.
Takeva said that starting salaries will be also increased in 2014 – from BGN 500 a month to BGN 550 a month. The increase is part of the package of measures to attract young people to the profession.
According to the trade union leader, the money the state gives as what is called single expenditure standard for college students who are enrolled in pedagogical majors will be upped as well.
Takeva says Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski has given her firm assurances all of the above will materialize in 2014.
