Additional Information

On 22 August 2013, Łódź Local Goverment announced its plans to reduce employment in the local schools by 103 jobs. The employment status of the remaining 388 teachers is expected to be changed as they will be employed on a part-time basis.

Dismissals are attributed to the "baby bust"  (since 2004 the population of pupils in Poland has reduced by 1.5 million people ).

The Ministry of National Education and the Polish Teachers’ Union estimate that about 7,700 teachers will lose their jobs in 2013 across Poland.
