Parliament debates this Wednesday, at the request of the PCP, the “defense of public schools” and the “lack of attractiveness” of the teaching career, with the presence of the Minister of Education, João Costa.

At a time when strikes and negotiations between unions and the Government continue, the PCP required, on a mandatory basis, the scheduling of a topical debate in plenary on the theme “Defending the Public School, respecting and valuing Teachers and Educators”, which will take place today, with the presence of the Minister of Education, João Costa, and the Deputy Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Ana Catarina Mendes.

Speaking to the Lusa agency, PCP deputy Alfredo Maia considered that “it is urgent that the Government listen, and truly listen, to the clamor of teachers in the streets and schools, and give in to their just demands”.

Although João Costa had already been to parliament last week – in an urgent debate requested by Chega -, Alfredo Maia defended that the explanations given on that occasion “were not enough” and the official still has to answer “a series of questions” linked to the teaching career.

“We hope that you give us an answer, that you explain to us how it is justified that more than 40 thousand students have started the second period without teachers in at least one subject, what measures do you have to respond to the problem of the lack of teachers and, above all, the lack of attractiveness that the teaching career has at the moment”, he underlined.

Alfredo Maia said that the party wants to hear answers on the issue of “concrete guarantees regarding the effective employment of teachers”, warning that, only within the group of teachers with ten or more years of service, there are more than 11,000 without employment.

“Now the minister comes to speak [em vincular] 10,500 teachers. This objective is clearly insufficient, ”she criticized.

In the same context, Alfredo Maia described as a trap the ministry’s proposal to link all teachers with more than three years of service and who, this year, work a full schedule, warning that this situation could allow the linking of teachers with less years of experience service than teachers with careers of “10, 15 or 20 years”, but who are “an hour or two short” this year.

Another of the matters on which the PCP will question the Minister of Education is the replacement of length of service and progression and graduation in the teaching career.

Resuming a long-standing claim, the PCP demands the unfreezing of the “six years, six months and 23 days that were stolen from many teachers” and the guarantee that “they progress in their careers”, through the revocation of “vacancies and quotas for progression to the fifth and seventh levels”.

“These barriers are completely unacceptable, we have professors with 30 or more years of career who are in the fourth step, when they should be in the ninth”, he defended.

On the other hand, the PCP will also ask João Costa for answers regarding the placement of teachers in the Pedagogical Zone Boards (QZP).

“Although the ministry’s proposal goes in the direction that we have always defended, of reducing the geographical area of ​​the QZP, the truth is that a teacher distribution system is being profiled that goes against what we defend that the annual national competition should be, having as a criterion exclusive to teacher graduation”, he underlined.

According to Alfredo Maia, if the proposal remains as it is, there will be a “distribution of teachers within the QZP decided by the so-called Local Council of Directors, which means that a teacher can be placed to teach in several schools or groups at the same time ”.

“This is unacceptable. This is not in the direction of progress, it is in the direction of retrogression, creating difficulties for teachers”, he stressed.

For Alfredo Maia, “the Government has to give in to these claims, because they are fair and essential to solve the problems of education and quality school”.

On the PCP’s side, if the problems related to the teaching career are not resolved during the current negotiations between unions and the government, Alfredo Maia guaranteed that the party will not “give up on continuing to place initiatives at the proper heights and regimentally possible”.
