Each month, we have been paying 405 thousand tomans for insurance rights and 150 thousand tomans for space rights in the hope of being recruited as a tuition teacher by the Ministry of Education. Two years ago, 140 preschool teachers from Bagh-e Malek were recruited by the Ministry of Education, while some of them did not even have one year of insurance payments or class attendance.”
