Bulgarian Education Minister: 4000 Teachers Needed

The Bulgarian Minister of Education, Krasimir Valchev, commented on the worsening situation around hiring teachers. He said that the worst deficit is going to occur 10 years from now.

Nova interviewed the minister. He said: “In the last 3-4 years, there’s a large number of retired teachers. But the biggest deficit will come after 10 years. This is why we implement measures of increasing salaries, to increase the motivation of more young people to join.” Valchev claims that: “The teaching profession isn’t attractive to a young person. Young people want professions that give opportunities faster.”

90,000 people work in the Bulgarian educational system, 15,000 of which are in the country’s capital Sofia, but still, 650 positions remain vacant. Valchev also commented on the efficiency of scores for evaluation, saying: “we can’t do without them. But they aren’t the most important thing.”

The deficit of educators in the Bulgarian schools has vastly increased the average workload per teacher.
