Education Trends in Europe

New ETUCE Survey Reports Ring an Alarm Bell

Brussels (BE), May 2016 - The ETUCE has published two new survey reports, available on the ETUCE website, on the "State of Funding in Education, Teachers’ working conditions and Trade union actions, Social dialogue and Collective bargaining". One deals with Central and Eastern European countries and the other with Western European lands. The two reports are a comprehensive "state of play" that combines the outcomes of eight years of economic crisis and fiscal consolidation measures on public finance of education systems, teachers’ working conditions, the role of teacher unions, and the major trends in social dialogue and collective bargaining.
