The UB Post - - DOMESTIC -

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Cul­ture, Sci­ence and Sports has fi­nally de­cided to re­spond to pub­lic school teach­ers’ de­mands for a wage in­crease.

The min­istry is­sued an or­der on Sep­tem­ber 14, ask­ing the Min­is­ter of La­bor and So­cial Pro­tec­tion and Min­is­ter of Fi­nance to co­op­er­ate on the re­newal of the wage sys­tem for civil ser­vants, par­tic­u­larly for teach­ers. As stated in the doc­u­ment, the three min­istries will form a work­ing group and hold a na­tion­wide open dis­cus­sion about teach­ers’ wage and in­cen­tive ar­range­ments with teach­ers and peo­ple work­ing in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

Through the re­form of the wage sys­tem, the min­istry hopes to ac­cu­rately rec­og­nize teach­ers’ role, im­prove the pro­fes­sional sta­tus of teach­ers in Mon­go­lia, as­sess the amount of work they do each day, revise the work de­scrip­tion of teach­ers, set dif­fer­ent wages for teach­ers de­pend­ing on their work­place (preschool, mid­dle school, high school and etc.), set a per­for­mance-based wage sys­tem in­stead of pri­or­i­tiz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, su­per­vise and mod­ify teach­ers’ work norms, trans­fer the au­thor­ity of li­cen­sure for teach­ers to schools, and im­prove in­cen­tive sys­tem.

The min­istry in­structed the work­ing group to fi­nal­ize all po­si­tions and ideas made dur­ing the open dis­cus­sion and send it to the min­istry by Oc­to­ber 13.
