Peru teachers' strike ends, but will not be the last

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Significance

However, the government and the strikers failed to reach agreement on the key topic of institutionalising periodic evaluations of teachers’ competence. Marilu Marten’s future as education minister still appears to hang in the balance.

Impacts

  • Fiscal constraints will limit the scope for further pay rises for the teaching profession.
  • Special inducements may be required to improve educational standards in the poorest parts of the country.
  • Peru is likely to remain near the bottom of the PISA league tables.
