Argentina, May 5, 2012
In the city of Buenos Aires, the fees of private schools that receive subsidies from the city government will increase by 9.8%. Sources from the city government said that the increase is related to the latest increase in teacher’s wages.
The increase was authorized by the Tariff Commission of the Buenos Aires Ministry of Education. Sources also did not rule out that could be further increases in July, after the teachers receive the second salary after the adjustment made in the joint.
The Commission will have a meeting in July to “assess the impact of inflation and increase teacher’s pay in school budgets,” said Chief of Staff of the Ministry of Education of Buenos Aires, Diego Fernandez.
In the last joint, an agreement was reached to increase 23% for a teacher degree without seniority.
