MORE teachers will gradually be returning to the classrooms in the Valencia Region.

Around 5,000 teachers have been lost in recent years as a result of the cuts, but that trend will be reversed as the Regional Government announces the recruitment of over a thousand new teachers.

Minister of Education, Vicent Marza said the plans would start with adding 174 teachers in primary school classrooms and another 900 in secondary schools.

The move aims to reduce the number of students in classes from 30 to 25 per teacher and lower the ratio in institutes from 35 to 30 pupils a class.

A budget of €10 million is to be made available for the teacher training programmes and more will be invested in school infrastructure in what Marza describes as a budget which is “honest, sincere and realistic” adding “this year we will have €312million more for education and the building of schools.”
