Teachers essential to build a future that binds us – PL
Teachers are essential in the vision towards building a future that binds us, therefore strategic decisions in this sector should be taken collectively, said Opposition Leader Joseph Muscat during a meeting held with the Malta Union of Teachers (MUT).
Dr Muscat said that the Labour Party will not experiment with teachers but wants to build a strategy that will yield results.
He also added that about the college system, the Labour Party is concerned about the fact that there is no ownership of the system. Ideally, he added, teachers should advocate this system.
The Opposition Leader referred to the changes in the curriculum and said that the new government will discuss and consult with teachers.
MUT President, Kevin Bonello, said that as happens before any general election, MUT is presenting its proposals to the political parties, this time together with a report on research conducted about the college reform.
The Opposition Spokesperson for Education and Civil Rights, Evarist Bartolo and Opposition Spokesperson for Higher Education, Research and Culture, Owen Bonnici, as well as Karmenu Vella who is responsible for the laying out of the new electoral programme and PL CEO James Piscopo, were also present at this meeting.
