Many kindergarten teachers from the Capital might receive free housing in dormitories. The possibility was evoked by interim Mayor, Silvia Radu, who declared that she already found some real estate for this purpose. The official requested specialists to calculate the expenses for repair works. The issue being discussed after some officials complained about lack of teachers.
"From the economical point of view, many young people favor going back to their home districts, or even abroad. Lack of graduates in the field, leads to lack of teachers" interim chief of Chisinau Education Department, Viorica Negrei said.
"Dormitories are in a good state, livable. Young families would have no issues living there. The building is warmed, illuminated, rather new, but still requires some repair works to be fit for families" Silvia Radu said.
Deputy Mayor Ruslan Codreanu suggested for transport expenses to also be covered.
"One of the suggestions was to reduce expenses for transportation of both kindergarten teachers and employees. Draw up a project, Municipal Councilmen should come up with solutions to cover expenses of those living outside of Chisinau" Codreanu declared.
