The USPRS teachers’ union staged a protest at noon on Thursday in front of the Serbian Education Ministry in Belgrade.
The teachers are demanding smaller classes, the pay grades they have been calling for since 2015 and quality education.
“Education in Serbia has been degraded, Education Minister Branko Ruzic is not doing his job and no one is thinking about the future of education in Serbia,” one of the teachers said and recalled that they have been protesting with the same demands for years.
According to the teachers, the pandemic showed the bad situation in the education system.
The protest was accompanied by a strike in some schools in the rest of the country where classes have been shortened.
