“Adherence levels are very close to those of the previous strike, that is, around 90%. There are many schools closed from north to south of the country and others are open, but classes are not taking place due to a lack of teachers”, João Dias da Silva told Lusa.

Teachers are today carrying out a national strike in protest against the alleged lack of investment by the Government in education, which they believe is exposed in the proposed State Budget (OE) for 2023.
