The Greek Government destroys Public Vocational Lyceums and Vocational Schools, leading to teacher dismissals through the process of “sudden death”.

The criminal complicity of the Greek Government and the Troika all along with the consent and the connivance of the Minister of Education, are condemning 2.500 teachers (including the president of OLME- the secondary teachers union, Themis Kotsifakis)  in Greece to 8-month suspension with 75% of their basic salary, prior to their dismissal. At the same time, they are preparing the transference of 5.000 secondary education teachers to primary education and 2.000 to administration. All this is coming in addition to the fact that 10.000 non-permanent contract teachers (in primary and secondary education) are already dismissed and will not be hired again in September.

With a new law, the Government destroys three sectors of Greek Vocational Education (Health, Art and Cosmetics). This means that in September 20.000 students will be looking for their Vocational Lyceum and Schools and they will not find them. In this way the Government concedes a large part of the Vocational Secondary Education to the private sector. Further changes, teachers suspensions and dismissals are expected in September.

We demand that no teacher is suspended or dismissed.

We demand that no student is left without the sector of his/hers choice in the public vocational school.

We demand to stop the mobility (suspensions – dismissals) and cut offs policy of the Greek Government  and the Troika which destroys the Public Education in Greece
