TALLINN - The state budget for 2013 has to include a wage increase for teachers, Estonian Education Minister Jaak Aaviksoo said while speaking at the Riigikogu Finance Committee, LETA/Postimees cited national television.

“The 2013 state budget will certainly not cope without a wage increase for teachers,” assured Aaviksoo.

He said that the wage increase should be considerable, but he refused to mention how big exactly.

“How big the result is going to be depends on many aspects, including Greece,” he said.
