Somali Teachers On Strike [Archives:1998/18/Local News]

May 4 1998

Somali teachers working in Yemen went on a strike last week in protest over months-long delays in getting paid. There are about 100 Somalis teaching English in Yemeni schools, whose contracts the Ministry of Education has refused to renew for the academic year 1997/98. It also refuses to pay them.
The Ministry of Education promised earlier to renew these contracts in line with other Arab teachers working in Yemen.
