Demonstration in Hanover: teachers call for the end of staff shortages in schools

Around 1,500 school workers demonstrated on Wednesday in Hanover in front of the State Chancellery against the shortage of staff at schools in Lower Saxony. The Education and Science Union (GEW) had called for a protest march through the state capital so that the next government would address this grievance immediately after the state elections on Sunday. On the "UNESCO World Teachers' Day," the education union recalled that the schools were short of at least 10,000 employees - in addition to teachers, employees with pedagogical, therapeutic and technical professions or in social work. The staff shortages are also untenable at universities and in adult education.

"The state governments have shared the blame for the shortage of staff in our schools for the past 20 years. Now they have to pull the cart together, no matter who wins the state elections on October 9th," demanded GEW state chairman Stefan Störmer. One billion euros would have to be made available every year in order to remedy the shortage of staff by increasing the number of trainees in the medium and long term.

"The permanent overload makes the remaining staff sick. None of the responsible government coalitions has recruited and trained enough staff, none has created sufficient relief in the system," it said. The GEW has at least achieved that the existing shortage of staff is no longer discussed away.
