Teachers will be laid off when the music school is forced to make savings
The Music School needs to make savings of two million crowns next year. This means that four teachers out of a total of 29 will be laid off at the turn of the year. About 120 music pupils will lose their teachers.
Above all, it will affect the teaching of the clarinet, oboe and electric bass. Piano, where demand is greatest, will also be affected.
The employment cuts are part of the Children and Education Committee's total savings of 38 million, which is included in the right-wing Alliance Board's budget for 2021.
– Of course, we have to be part of the cuts. It’s the proportions of the savings that I think are unreasonable, says Andreas Hiller, Principal of the Music School in Kristianstad.
The proposal to increase the fee was on the agenda in the Municipal Council on Tuesday. The Social Democrats and the Left Party voted against, but the decision was made to increase the fee to 680 crowns.
