Deputy Minister: Low wages are the cause of personnel shortage in kindergartens

by April 6, 2017 Legal

The shortage of personnel in pre-school organizations is associated with low salaries. This was announced today by Deputy Minister of Education and Science Elmira Sukhanberdiyeva during a round table in the Majilis.

According to her, to date, more than 84,000 teachers work in pre-school organizations of Kazakhstan.

The volume of state orders for this specialty increases every year. Personnel shortage in pre-school organizations is caused not by the unattractiveness of the preschool teacher’s profession, but by low wages, � Elmira Sukhanberdiyeva stressed.

According to her, to date, the wage of a kindergartener is 35.7-55.6 thousand tenge and the wage of an assistant kindergartener is 25-30 thousand tenge.

The salary is incommensurable with the responsibility for the lives and health of children, � the Deputy Minister noted.

According to her, to correct this situation it is necessary to reconsider the loads on teachers in preschool institutions.

We have a request that you support us, the way we had support in reviewing the loads on school teachers, � Elmira Sukhanberdiyeva asked the deputies.
