Li ma jsir xejn dwar is-sħana tremenda fil-klassijiet huwa diżrispett lejn l-edukaturi u l-istudenti

L-MUT qed tieħu nota tal-messaġġi li qed tirċievi rigward is-sħana tremenda fil-klassijiet u wasslet dawn l-ilmenti u s-suġġerimenti lill-Ministeru tal-Edukazzjoni biex f’isem il-membri turi t-tħassib tagħha rigward din is-sitwazzjoni insopportabbli li l-edukaturi u l-istudenti qed jiffaċċjaw.
