The Finance Ministry is offering teachers a new salary package in a bid to end strikes across the education system.

Under the proposal, new teachers will earn NIS 9,000 ($2,600) per month, a 30% increase on their current wage. There will also be a wage increase for teachers of all experience levels.

Among the proposals are funding for extra positions and grants for teachers who remain in the profession for several years.
