Fundamentals of the Republican Target Program for the Youth Support are being discussed these days by the Tuvan deputies in the rural districts of Tuva. Yesterday parlamentarians had a session in Chadan, alexistrative centre of the Dzun-Khemchik district, meeting young specialists from Dzun-Khemchik, Baruun-Khemchik and Sut-Khol districts. Young people spoke of the housing problems which they face and the low salaries. Thus an average monthly income of a young teacher in a rural school stands at 2000 rouble (appr 70 dollars). "With this money we cannot even buy enough coal to live through the severe winter"- complained the teachers: "leaving alone buy methods literature to improve our professional skills".
