The Czech state is to begin funding schools according to the number of hours taught rather than number of pupils. The provision is included in an amendment to the law on education approved by the lower house that will take effect in 2018. The bill also includes measures aimed at protecting teachers and pupils from attack in the classroom. The government rejected calls to reduce the amount the state contributes to private and religious schools.
