Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Un­em­ployed teach­ers ha­rangued Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Nikos Filis (r) yesterday as he met with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of pri­mary and sec­ondary school teach­ers in Athens. Filis, who was only ap­pointed to the po­si­tion last month, ar­gued that he was not re­spon­si­ble for a short­age of some 25,000 teach­ers at Greek state schools, which is one of the main rea­sons that some 270 schools failed to open for the new aca­demic year. Mean­while, the gov­ern­ment could also run into dif­fi­cul­ties with tech­ni­cal col­leges (TEIs) as they are re­fus­ing to ad­just their bud­gets af­ter be­ing told their state fund­ing for 2016 will be cut by 16 per­cent.
