Minister of Education meets with teacher’s union

Irene DickWILLEMSTAD – Minister of Education Irene Dick meets today at 10:00 am with the union for teachers Sitek to talk about the problems in education. Yesterday morning teachers took action and left the classrooms empty.

These actions are because of a great dissatisfaction including the absence of a collective agreement, the lack of appropriate teaching materials and the poor condition of school buildings. How big the proportion of striking teachers was, is still unclear.

According to Dick, there is no conflict, and she would like the unions come and sit at the table. The minister does not understand why the actions continued today.

Sitek’s statements about Dick being a minister for only ceremonial events is not something she is going to worry about. According to the minister all stakeholders in the education sectors need her attention.
