Teachers to strike on Oct 11 over mandatory evaluation


The Greek primary teachers’ federation (DOE) has called a 24-hour strike for Monday, October 11, against the mandatory evaluation of teaching staff and schools.

In a statement, DOE slammed the policy as “anti-pedagogical,” adding that it will have a “disastrous effect on public schools.”
Even though assessments are not punitive – underperforming teachers will be directed to attend seminars rather than be fired – unions are vehemently against any reintroduction of assessments that were terminated by Greece’s first socialist government in 1982.
