Kindergartens forced to give up music lessons

Oct 12, 2009
TBT staff and wire reports

TALLINN - Judging by the results of the poll, held by the Estonian Teachers' Union, in 34 kindergartens located in Tallinn, music teachers are forced to work for only half of the regulation salary and even carry out the functions of over teachers.

The Union, fretted by such situation, has sent the Administrative Board of Tallinn and the Ministry of Education a complaint letter, as the teaching of music in kindergartens and beginner schools can become impossible, because of the lack of finances and the incapability to make a more effective schedule.     

The Union has questioned 53 kindergarten music teachers, and has come to a conclusion, that 34 of them have experienced a salary cut.

Tallinn vice-Mayor Kaia Jappinen, who is responsible for the educational sphere refused to comment on the situation.
