While the local schools do not even run a color printer, Péter Kovács, the Fidesz mayor of the Pest district, refers to tradition and respect. For the time being, it is a secret how many people are being transported by the municipality and how much.
He was sent to Nice on a study trip by the XVI. district self-government the head of the North-Pest school district and the principals of several primary schools – reported on the study tour organized for local education leaders in the RTL News. The people involved did not really protest against the trip to the city in the south of France, famous for its azure sea, wonderful coast, riviera and film festival, but the teachers working in increasingly difficult conditions in domestic schools were not so enthusiastic, according to the television.
According to one district teacher who spoke anonymously to RTL: the money intended for the trip could go to a better place, for example, the local government could buy a color printer or other educational equipment for the schools. The teacher admits that the district keeps the buildings in order, but at the moment the situation is such that the teachers have to buy the chalks and blackboard felts themselves. The given institution has a printer and a photocopier, but the managers do not look favorably on using them a little more, because “you have to save a lot.” Another teacher reported that “it’s not the first time, they travel somewhere practically every year”.
According to MP Zoltán Vajda from MSZP, it is unfortunate and not right to send institution managers and school district leaders on a trip when students and teachers protest on a weekly basis due to the deteriorating quality of education. Péter Kovács, the Fidesz mayor of the district, acknowledged the trip when asked by RTL Híradó, but did not answer how many people traveled, nor how much it cost the municipality.
Instead of a statement, the mayor finally responded in writing at length, the essence of which is that “the XVI. esteeming teachers is a decades-old tradition at the district municipality”. His list includes awards, pedagogic days, events, rewards, school renovations. -Also a decades-old tradition is the Institutional Heads’ Study Trip, which is organized every year, in the framework of which we got to know the German or Spanish education system together with the school principals. This year, France (Nice) became the destination of the study trip – added Péter Kovács, who said that the head of every district municipality-maintained institution could go on the trip, and the study trip can also be considered a team-building event.
