Teachers want director sacked

Teachers from Preah Reach Bochineykech high school, in Stung Treng province, have called on the provincial government to sack their school director, who they say is corrupt.

A written complaint, thumbprinted by 33 teachers and calling for school director Mao Bunthay to be replaced, was presented to officials, teachers said.

“Spending of the school budget without transparency, over-use of his right as school director without the agreement of school management committee, and nepotism have led 33 teachers to complain,” a staff member, who did not want to be named, said.

More than US$5,000 had disappeared under the director’s administration, teachers said.

Heang Poly, director of Stung Treng’s education department, said: “The first measure is to allow the director to solve and finish all these problems prior to December 30,” he said.

“If he fails to do so, the department will use a new measure that cannot be revealed.”
