#teacher | Jordan teachers strike, one million pupils stay home | Jordan News

A strike by 80,000 teachers in Jordan is forcing more than a million students to stay at home.

The teachers in public schools want pay increases of 50 percent.

But the government says it does not have the money – and is urging an end to what it calls an “illegal” walkout.
