Photo Of the Day: Teachers’ Strike
Ugandan teachers under their umbrella organisation Uganda National Teachers Union (UNATU) have entered the second day of the countrywide strike. The teachers are demanding for a 100% salary increment in the financial year 2012-2013. However, Education Minister Alupo reiterated the Government’s commitment to increase teachers’ salaries up to 50% by financial year 2014/2015.
The teachers have presented a petition to the Deputy today and will be discussed later this afternoon.
In Uganda the starting salary for a teacher is 270,000 shillings (approx 112.5 USD)
