Baku-APA. Austrian Education Minister Claudia Schmied Wednesday presented three reform packages on developing the country’s normal schools, aiming to enhance the overall level of education including that for preschool, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

The packages underline research expertise of normal school students, expanding enrollment while ensuring the quality of normal school students.

Each reform package includes measures including amendment of salary law for teachers, introduction of doctoral scholarship program, continuing education courses for teachers, standardized aptitude tests for teachers or even changing the university law to introduce master degree into normal school education.

Schmied said at a press conference that Austria needs well- qualified teachers and normal schools are of special importance to this effect. She added that reforms on normal schools are inevitable because teachers are very essential for the success of the country’s education.

She hoped that through the reforms, the status of normal schools in Austria will be improved and brought closer to that of universities.

The development of normal schools in Austria has been shelved in the government program. The number of normal school students has increased significantly in the past years, from 1,738 in the 2008/2009 academic year to 3,786 in 2011/12.
