The Teachers’ Platform (Učitelská platforma) in the Czech Republic is rejecting a Labor and Social Affairs Ministry proposal to disqualify those applying for or already receiving housing benefits if their children are absent from compulsory school attendance for more than 100 hours per semester and do not provide confirmation from a doctor that illness was the reason.
