In cooperation with BNS

TALLINN - The Estonian minister of education has promised to increase wages for teachers despite the country's economic problems.

Teachers' salary will rise 8 percent next year, Tonis Lukas told the daily Eesti Paevaleht in an interview.

"I'll propose to the government to raise minimum salaries of teachers by 8 percent, which exceeds the average wage growth forecast of the Finance Ministry. In addition to an increase in structural fund financing out of European taxpayers' pocket, teachers' pay rise is the only growing spending article in the Education Ministry," Lukas told the paper.

"The agreement reached (on the budget) is good, spending and revenue is balanced, and the final expenditure assignment is the best that can be achieved in Estonia. I can be satisfied with the solution," the minister said
