Chadian teachers finally call off strike

Teacher Strike

Public schools in Chad reopened on Monday after over two months of a teachers’ strike.

Minister of National Education and Civic Promotion Ndolembai Sade Njesada said that classes had effectively restarted in several schools.

“Once again, teachers have done everything in their power for the effective resumption of classes across the country. The reopening is effective in most schools. We will try to recover lost time,” Njesada told reporters after visiting schools in Chad’s capital, N’Djamena.

Teachers of primary, secondary schools and university in the Central African country went on strike on Nov. 2 last year to demand improvements in working conditions and the reinstatement of salaries that were cut during the economic crisis experienced in 2016.

The union representing public school teachers reached a tentative deal with the government on Friday, ending the strike that had forced scores of schools to close and kept students out of class.
