Pirkanmaa MPs back study grant raise
Most of the Members of Parliament from the Pirkanmaa area back raising the study grant. Of the areaÂ’s 18 MPs 17 replied to AviisiÂ’s email poll. They all had a positive attitude towards raising the study grant but especially MPs from government parties were careful with their words when discussing schedules.

The question has caused division inside government parties. A group of young MPs from the Centre Party, the Social Democratic Party, and the Swedish PeopleÂ’s Party have signed a budget motion that would bring in the 15 percent raise demanded by student organisations as early as next year. Opposition parties also demand amending student benefits next year.

Moving the Hämeenlinna DTE to Tampere would cost 10 million euros
Moving the Hämeenlinna Department of Teacher Education is being planned in order to cut costs by combining it with the teacher education in Tampere. The Hämeenlinna branch has 5000 square meters of teaching, training, and administrative facilities.

Building the practical training facilities such as the craft workshop and indoor court in Tampere would be expensive. University of Tampere Head of Administration, Timo Lahti estimates that building all the necessary facilities in Tampere would cost 10 million euros.

If the motion on moving the DTE passes at the Ministry of Education, class teacher education will move to Tampere by 2011. The opinions of the departmentÂ’s students have not really been heard yet. According to the Chair for the class teacher students, Katja-Helena Luhtavaara most of the students are against moving the department.
