Wanted: teachers!


About the research

Our education system suffers from a shortage of teachers. During her PhD Law researcher Evelien Timbermont (VUB) discovered one of the causes of this problem: the outdated & complicated rules for the employment of teachers. Fortunately, she also knows the solution to this problem.

Her strong sense of justice encouraged Evelien Timbermont to study law. During her studies she developed a passion for labour law. Her doctoral research, which relates to the employment of teaching staff in the Flemish Community, is unique as for the first time in history the rules in this area have been legally examined. Moreover, the study offers a possible answer to many societal problems, including the shortage of teachers.
