A number of teachers carried out a protest in front of Marka Education Directorate on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, after five female striking teachers were arbitrarily transferred from Al Karama School, as they said, because they are insisting on striking.

Protesters said that the principal of the School and the Director of Marka Education Directorate, Raia'a Abdullah were trying to end the strike; however, the five teachers are insisting on striking.

During the protest, they confirmed that the Jordanian Teachers Syndicate's demand for the 50% raise is fair and legitimate.

They also demanded the Director of Marka Education Directorate to immediately back down from the decision.
