Only 143 out of 500 Teachers To Get Study Leave This Year

Only 143 of the 560 teachers who applied for study leave this year were granted. This is part of the education ministry’s attempted to tighten spending in line with the IMF agreement.

The country will save approximately $840 million this financial year as a result of a reduction in the number of teachers and costs related to study leave. 

The $2.5 billion that was spent every year on study leave was said by the government to be unsustainable and had signalled back in May that they would review such arrangements.
