Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - The Ministry of Education in Saxony-Anhalt is examining whether to lower the requirements for lateral entrants into the teaching profession. Among other things, it should be clarified whether lateral entrants with a bachelor's degree can be given a permanent contract if they commit to qualifying for a subject at secondary school and successfully complete it. This was confirmed by the house of Education Minister Eva Feußner (CDU) on Tuesday on request. The "Magdeburger Volksstimme" had previously reported about it.
Currently, side entrants with a bachelor's degree can work as a teacher for a limited period of time. A spokesman for the Ministry of Education said that it is basically about attracting even more lateral entrants to secondary and community schools. "Concrete statements on this cannot yet be made." So far there has been neither a decision nor a concrete timetable.
