Education Minister Eva Feußner (CDU) said that the new working time account should be implemented at the beginning of next year. The aim is to make overtime more attractive for teachers in view of the shortage of teachers. Up to now, every teacher had to decide at the end of the school year whether to let the overtime be paid out or use it as free time. The latter is difficult due to the lack of teachers.
