In the past, the Czech Republic has been fighting with the shortage of medics over and over again. In the near future, Czech might be facing a serious lack of general nurses once again. The analysis results, provided by several Czech universities, show that there are many young students interested in following a path of becoming a nurse, however, the problem is that many universities have a limited number of students they are able to accept. According to research, it seems that way more students would like to choose the career of a nurse than before the covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, nursing schools all over the country report an excessive number of this year’s applicants. Thus, the Ministry of Health isContinue Reading

Before the new academic year managed to start, the Czech School Inspection released a report, focusing on the last year. That year of education was considerably affected by the pandemic, which forced students in and out of schools, while many of their families were also destabilized by the crisis. This shows in their results, as tens of thousands of students seem to have such problems with the material they were supposed to learn last year, that it will take more than a year for them to catch up, which could drastically hinder their academic abilities. According to the report, there are 14.5 thousand elementary school students, 22 thousand middle school students and 18 thousand high school students in this situation.Continue Reading

The quality of life, public transportation infrastructure and the country’s central location in Europe are among the well-known reasons. But one downside for many foreigners is the prospect of integrating into Czech society. A complex language, a culture that can be fairly insular, a sometimes impenetrable bureaucracy are among the challenges. The Czech government recognizes that these difficulties can mean some foreigners never integrate into society as well as they should, and now the government has created a new “adaptation-integration” course for foreigners. Here’s what you need to know: The classes are mandatory for some foreigners If you received yourContinue Reading

The Czech government has published a new document regarding the future of Czech education on its website. This document includes a calculation of the necessary funds to give all Czech public school teachers a raise. This sum is apparently 600 million to a billion crowns. While this may seem as a steep sum, the government apparently has the sum reserved for this purpose. However, it is also important to mention that this money is pulled from the massively inflated government budget, which has put the country in much debt already. This debt will undoubtedly take generations to pay off, so giving money away to a specific demographic right before the elections might be seen as an irresponsible populist move toContinue Reading
