Resisting Greece Teachers Will Finally Have Their Work Evaluated

February 26, 2021

ATHENS – Putting up objections every time it’s been raised, Greek teachers would now have to face evaluations of their performance under a New Democracy bill that had already seen fierce resistance from them.

The proposal to check the work of some 170,000 public and private school teachers will come in March, said Kathimerini, based on a memorandum signed by Greece on April 27, 2018 with European institutions.

The bill stipulates that teachers – now working remotely during another lockdown aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 – would be evaluated in September if there are live classes again then.

But even if they get poor grades or fail there will be punitive action, only remedial recommendations to improve what they do, although teachers have said they don’t want anyone checking on what they do.

Teachers will be assessed by two experts based on specific criteria, while their teaching methods will be evaluated in the classroom periodically and include a file on their careers.
