President Ilham Aliyev: Position of teachers in society is at a high level


July 27, Fineko/abc.az. In 2015-2018 a new approach was applied - a diagnostic assessment of teachers was conducted.

ABC.AZ reports that this was stated by President Ilham Aliyev during the reception of Education Minister Emin Amrullayev via video link in connection with his appointment as the minister.

The head of state noted that the salaries of teachers who successfully passed this diagnostic assessment increased by an average of 2 times: "Of course, this was an additional incentive for teachers. At the same time, the number of those who chose the teaching profession has increased accordingly, which gladdens me much. Because a few years ago, there were quite a few people who wanted to become a teacher. However, over the past few years, interest in the teaching profession has grown, as teachers now receive high salaries.

Their position in the Azerbaijani society is at a high level. Now they work in beautiful, renovated, reconstructed schools and universities. Every year on the eve of the school year, I visit newly built and renovated schools. Every year on the day of knowledge, I meet with children and teachers and note that school is also a teacher's place of work. The work done today in this area certainly encourages teachers. Therefore, additional steps should be taken to improve the level of education.”
