Contract Teachers Rally at Parliament House

HRANA News Agency – A group of contract teachers gathered this morning in front of the parliament building in Tehran to appeal to their representatives for permanent employment in the Ministry of Education.


According to a report by Jame Jam Online, demonstrators who were mostly female teachers with temporary contracts protested in front of the north entrance of the Iranian parliament to ask their representatives to take the necessary measures towards resolving teachers’ problems.  Additionally, some of the contract teachers gathered in a sit-in protest at a street corner close to the east entrance of the building and objected to the policies preventing them from being employed by the Ministry of Education as civil service teachers.


Seyyed Kazem Mousavi, the House Representative from Ardabil Province [Azerbaijan, Iran] and a member of the House Committee on Education and Research, appeared amongst the protestors and spoke with them.
