    Some 93% of head teachers and 88% teachers enjoy coming to school each morning. Amongst these, nearly 9 out of 10 claim to believe in the success of every pupil and feel sufficiently qualified with all of the appropriate tools for their job, reports a SeGEC survey. The latter organisation is the general secretariat for Catholic education. The survey results were published on Friday in Le Soir

    Three-quarters of school managements are pleased with the collaboration in their school but regret, to the same extent, the lack of professional development amongst teachers, indicates the study.

    Moreover two-thirds of primary school managements believe parents, particularly through parent teacher associations, provide active support in school life. That having been said, nearly 1 in 3 teachers expect greater parental interest in school work. Some 1 in 2 would prefer parents to have greater involvement in school life.

    Nearly 100,000 pupils, teachers and parents took part in this survey carried out by SeGEC, as part of a pilot scheme, itself one of the pillars of the so called “Excellence Pact”.
