What can be done to solve the lack of teachers in schools?

About twenty thousand students started last year’s third period in schools without some classes due to a lack of teachers. How to respond to this imbalance and what can be done to respond to the lack of teachers in schools were starting points for the 3rd episode of Consulta Pública (Antena 1) with Luís Catela Nunes as the main guest.

“In this vertiginous and polarized world, it is becoming more and more important to stop to think and exchange ideas to think better. Antena 1 opens a “public appointment” (Consulta Pública) every month to enhance debate about today’s biggest topics.”. In this episode Antena 1 invites Luís Catela Nunes, Isabel Flores, Luísa Loura, Paulo Sucena e Cristina Gomes da Silva. Click here to listen to this episode.  

Moreover, Luís Catela Nunes also participated in the seminar “Faltam professores! E agora?...” (We are lacking professors! What now?...), organized by the CNE- National Council of Education- to discuss the teacher recruitment needs for the next 10 years. He presented the results of the study with forecasts of the demand and supply of teachers for the 850 schools on the Portuguese mainland across different subjects and school years.

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
