Back to school: Morsi gets black marks from Egypt’s teachers

Randa Ali, Ahram Online (September 10, 2012)

President Morsi

On Sunday, September 9, President Morsi approved a modification to state-employed teacher pay that allows teachers to receive 100 percent of their salary in bi-annual batches to be dispersed on October 2012 and January 2013. For some teachers, this means their salaries will double; however, many teachers believe the compensation remains incommensurate with their levels of experience. Additional demands include permanent positions for long-term temporary employees. There is some likelihood that this demand will be met on Monday, September 17, as temporary public workers are expected to be permanently hired by June 2013.
