Dmitry Medvedev admitted that the system of payment of teachers can be changed by increasing the base salary. The question is how the system of calculating salaries from the salary and allowances of the fair, he said. Previously Medvedev had to answer the question about the low salaries of teachers
Question about the salaries of University staff on the forum “Development of higher education raised Professor, southern Federal University, Anastasia Nikitaeva. According to her, the base salary level of professors and teachers should be higher. Now decent wages achieved by various allowances for employees.
The Prime Minister agreed that often the amount of wages is achieved on account of premiums, allowances and payments” and the question arises, “how is this system fair”. “But if you believe that you need to establish some guaranteed component of the salary, it is possible to see it. You can install such a recommendation,” said Medvedev.
The system of remuneration of employees of universities and schools have changed in 2008 after the resolution of the government No. 583. The salary was divided on salary, incentive payments for intensity and high performance (quality, continuous service, length of service, payment of bonuses by results of work) and compensation payments.

However, he did not rule out that it is possible to return to some old principles of calculating wages. The government is waiting for specific proposals on the issue of remuneration of teachers.

I am often asked about it. And teachers and professors are calling. And if you want to earn money — there are plenty of beautiful places where you can do it faster and better. The same business. But you did not go to business, as I understand it,” — said Medvedev. His words caused a great resonance, and the Internet petition for resignation of the Prime Minister. A Kremlin source later called the scandal the statements of the Prime Minister “custom campaign”.
