Here we go again
After more than a year of relative public quiet another political-financial row has broken out in Hungary over the PAF (András Pető College, formerly the Pető Institute).
Precisely what is all about is all Greek to me. As far as I can gather, over twenty conductors at PAF (those working with adults) are being transferred from the teachers' to the civil servants' pay scale, halving their wages. Some conductors are refusing to sign their new contracts and are losing their jobs.
Perhaps those who understand all this better could explain further. Any clarification gratefully received
This potentially matters enormously to the wider conductive world, without the walls of the PAF and without Hungary. Conductor-training courses outside Hungary remain small and are few and far between, and the PAF still provides a disproportionately high number of the world's newly trained conductors.
Opposition MP Timea Szabó is already on the case and there is likely to be further public airing.
Opportunity to comment still open?
