Women literacy teachers in Yazd (central Iran) gathered in front of the Education Department on Sunday, October 15, 2017 to protest against their undetermined employment status.
“After years of teaching, we remain in limbo. We expect that the Department of Education to implement the Parliament’s bill on our employment as soon as possible,” a protester said.
Earlier, the education committee of the mullahs’ parliament (Majlis) had announced that the Ministry of Education must take action regarding the employment of forces who are in a state of limbo, including the educators of the literacy movement. According to the committee’s spokesman, this action must be done before recruitment of new forces in the Education Ministry and its departments.
