Teachers call for new holiday bonus

The Cambodian Independent Teachers Association (CITA) has called on Education Minister Im Sethy to pay a bonus of 150,000 riels (US$35.80) to each of the country’s teachers ahead of this year’s Khmer New Year holiday. “CITA would like to request that the Education Ministry give 150,000 riels to each teacher in order for them to have a chance to go to their homelands on Khmer New Year,” CITA President Rong Chhun wrote in the letter. He said that five years ago the ministry discontinued paying out bonuses for national festivals.
