Shmyhal: Teachers' salaries to grow by 30 percent this year.

Teachers' salaries will grow by 30% this year.

"This year we will increase teachers' salaries by 30%, but, of course, our goal is at least to reach the level of the average salary in the country. There should be a minimum basis for teachers, for educators," Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said at the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30. Education and Science", an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to him, the authorities should take care of a sufficient number of schools and kindergartens. That is, it is necessary to create a modern developed infrastructure, and the President’s initiative "Great Construction" will allow doing this.

"We can talk, taking into account last year and this year, about hundreds of newly built schools and kindergartens in our country which create a quality modern infrastructure for education," the Prime Minister said.

As reported, the Cabinet of Ministers approved a new wage rate scale for employees of budgetary institutions at its meeting on January 20. According to the Prime Minister, the decision made it possible to increase teachers' salaries by almost 20% already in January.
