A group of hardworking teachers of support schools in Yazd Province held a protest rally on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, in front of the governorate to protest mismanagement of support schools and demand full payment of their salaries.
Ms. Molla Nouri, one of the female teachers participating in the protest rally, explained some of the problems the hardworking teachers of support schools in Yazd face. “Our salaries have not been paid since April. Teachers who have no children receive monthly salaries of under one million toumans and for each child (up to two children) 80,000 toumans is added to their salaries.”
Lack of job security and insurances are among the main problems hardworking teachers in the province of Yazd and the country as a whole.
Another teacher said that 70 percent of the hardworking teachers in Yazd Province are women and 30 percent are men. Currently, 54 schools operate in Yazd Province, but 20 of them have been closed because their teachers’ salaries have not been paid. (The state-run ISNA news agency – January 15, 2019)
According to ISNA, support schools began working in 2014 by buying educational services from non-public schools to help provide education to more children in areas that have shortage of human force.
