Nay Pyi Taw, June (9)
The military council issued a statement that the appeal period for school teachers, who joined the anti-regime Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM), has been extended until June 14.
The coup junta set the deadlines for CDM teachers to report on May 31 and June 7, respectively. Now, the deadline for returning to work has been extended to June 14.
The regime again invited education staff to report voluntarily to their respective education offices or nearest education office to return to work.
The instructors, despite the junta’s invitation, are unwilling to do so and will not return to work, according to a headmistress who spoke to Than Lwin Times.
As of June7, 2 900 CDM teachers have contacted the regime’s Ministry of Education to return to work, and of those, about 50 CDM teachers serve the schools.
However, the majority of CDM teachers have determined that they will never return to work under the military rule.
Tens of thousands of teachers from the education departments across the country have joined the anti-regime CDM movement to show that they do not accept military coup.
According to figures released by the regime’s Ministry of Education on April 23 last year, 120,000 of the more than 450,000 teaching and administrative staff were absent from their duties.
The military council said on June 1 that more than 5 600 000 students have enrolled in the basic education schools for the current academic year, which began on June 2.
