In Brief: CITA yo gather for world teachers day

Teachers in Cambodia plan to mark the upcoming World Teachers Day with a rally to urge officials to raise wages and increase support for educators. About 150 teachers and members of the Cambodian Independent Teachers Association are to commemorate the day, October 5, with a rally in front of the old National Assembly building on Sothearos Boulevard. In a letter to Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema, the teachers said they hope to draw attention to the role of educators in building the country’s future, and pleaded for a raise in teacher salaries to a minimum of 1 million riels (US$241) per month. There is currently no minimum salary for teachers.
