Teacher in Takeo cries foul over firing

A primary school teacher claimed yesterday that he was fired from his job at a school in Takeo province in May after alleging the school had not been transparent in its use of government money. Teacher Bin Bunna told the Post he had waited for a resolution from the provincial education department, before filing a complaint to the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association in August. He claims he was fired after complaining that senior staff at Kampong Krasang primary school in Borei Cholsar district, including school director Seng Phy, had not informed teachers about how they spent government money. CITA yesterday filed a complaint to Education Minister Im Sethy requesting intervention on Bin Bunna’s behalf, claiming he was unfairly dismissed by provincial education department director Nuth Khon. Im Sethy, Nuth Khon and Seng Phy could not be reached for comment yesterday.
