MEK Iran: Teachers Protest Across country
On Thursday, teachers across Iran demonstrated against the regime’s disregard for requests they’ve been expressing for months. Working and retired teachers are demanding that the “classification plan” be implemented, that retired teachers’ pay be adjusted, and those other essential issues be addressed.
Teachers should be separated into five classes
The Iranian Teachers Coordination Council, which coordinated the rallies ahead of time, stated that the proposed budget for teachers in the classification legislation is insufficient and that the administration and parliament are merely attempting to put something on paper.
The government has only allotted 25 trillion rials to the classification plan, according to the council’s statement. As a result, only 12.5 trillion rials will be allocated to teachers’ needs this year, with the remainder being deferred until the next Persian year (which begins in mid-March) and contingent on sufficient funding. The plan requires at least 50 trillion rials, according to the regime’s own specialists.
Rallies were held in front of the education ministry’s
Teachers should be separated into five classes, according to the classification plan, and their remuneration should be adjusted correspondingly.
At least 66 cities across the country, including Tehran, Isfahan, Kermanshah, Khuzestan, Yazd, Fars, Qazvin, Mazandaran, Khorasan, Kerman, and Sistan and Baluchestan, held protests.
Teachers from the provinces of Tehran and Alborz assembled in front of the Majlis (parliament). Rallies were held in front of the education ministry’s headquarters in various cities.
Rajavi, Khamenei uses the assets of Iran for making bomb
The president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, expressed solidarity for the Iranian teachers’ protests.
“They echo the cries of a nation fed up with the mullahs’ oppression and injustice by chanting, ‘Teachers would die but won’t submit,'” Mrs. Rajavi said. “Khamenei, Raisi, and his IRGC terrorists and torturers squander the assets of the Iranian people to make bombs, missiles, and drones. As a result, they keep teachers and other members of society in poverty.”
Teachers have been protesting the regime’s indifference to their difficulties on a daily basis. For several months, the dictatorship postponed the adoption of the classification act.
By keeping teacher salaries low they poorer
It has already been validated, but it only addresses a small portion of the challenges that teachers face, which is why they are returning to the streets to recover their rights. The speaker of the Majlis, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, has stated that the government’s 25 trillion budget has been declared and will not be changed.
The Teachers Coordination Council further stated that legislation to adjust retired teachers’ pay was sent to the Majlis in the summer but has yet to be addressed in parliamentary sessions. According to some sources, MPs are circulating petitions to prevent the bill from being ratified.
By keeping teacher salaries low, the Iranian regime is literally stealing from the country’s teachers. In recent years, a number of instructors have committed suicide as a result of poverty and the inability to meet their fundamental necessities.
