National Theatre Teachers Resign En Masse in Protest of Presidential Decree

ATHENS – Teachers at the National Theatre of Greece’s (NTG) Drama School resigned en masse on Wednesday over a controversial presidential decree.

The NTG’s Drama School Asssociation of Teachers protested the decree, which equates the diplomas of drama schools with high school diplomas.

In a press conference on January 24, NTG teachers had warned they would resign if the government failed to amend the decree by February 8.

Students have occupied the Ziller Building premises of the National Theatre since February 5 over the same issue.


ATHENS, Greece — A voluntary scheme by European Union member states to accept unaccompanied migrant children from Greece officially ended Tuesday, raising concern over delays still facing the bloc in hammering out a comprehensive new migration agreement.
