Interview with Professor António Teodoro in the news program “CNN Hoje” on CNN Portugal
On March 9, at 10.30 am, Professor António Teodoro, Director of the Institute of Education, was interviewed by journalist Ana Guedes Rodrigues on the news programme CNN Hoje. Professor Teodoro had the opportunity to analyse the educational moment, calling for important steps to be taken by the Government in order to respond to the very just demands of teachers and educators (with emphasis on combating precariousness and counting time of service for career progress in teaching). For Professor Teodoro, this is fundamental for a progressive normalisation of the school year and a redirection towards some of the greatest challenges facing education in the country: the enormous shortage of qualified teachers in this decade, the initial teacher training model, the attractiveness of the teaching profession. But also the revision of the school management model and a set of other dimensions that increase the autonomy of schools and teachers, giving meaning to the work developed and transforming, on a daily basis, the school into a space for the construction of social justice.
