Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner complains that Portuguese teachers with fixed-term contracts who teach in Portuguese schools abroad are not able to occupy permanent teaching positions, contrary to their counterparts in continental Portugal. He points out that, after the renewal of four successive fixed-term contracts, teachers in Portugal can be hired on a permanent basis, whereas teachers in Portuguese schools abroad cannot. He argues that this amounts to discrimination and puts teachers abroad in a precarious situation.
