New panel for teachers’ problems

Teachers will be able to file complaints to the government under a new commission led by Minister of Education, Youth and Sport Hang Chuon Naron.

The commission will include Naron as chairman, two undersecretaries of state as deputies and a number of other officials.

Naron said yesterday that a deluge of complaints from civil servants had flooded his office, making it impossible to study individual cases.

“So we created the commission to receive and settle the complaints in a comprehensive way, because when the complaints are filed, the complainants call and post on Facebook, so I have no time [to assess their cases],” he said.

“I will act as chairman to check and approve,” he added.

In the first year of Naron’s tenure as minister, more than 300 complaints have been filed.

Rong Chhun, president of the Cambodian Independent Teachers Association, welcomed the new commission.

“But we will wait to see if the will is there to solve the problems,” he said.
