"A teacher is, without pathos, the creator of the nation. And if so, how much should he or she be paid? Perhaps, like a military man? But the military also has different salaries: 'at zero' [on the contact line] it is [UAH] 100,000 and in the rear – [UAH] 20,000. Therefore, first of all, we must answer the question: what criteria will we take into account to determine the teacher's salary? The level of salary should depend on the level of qualification and a number of other factors," said Lisovyi.

The minister noted that developing mechanisms to increase teacher salaries is now one of his team's priorities.

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada passed a law that envisages advanced training for teachers in providing psychological support to participants in the educational process.
