The Ministry of Education sent text messages on Monday, October 1, 2019, calling on parents to send their children to schools today.

The Ministry has also emphasized that teachers must end the strike, head to schools and give lessons to students.

It had earlier warned that if teachers or school principals do not comply with the Administrative Court's decision and end the strike, provisions of Article 169/a/2 of the Civil Service Law No. 82 of 2013 and its amendments will be applied against them and a supplementary teacher will be assigned instead of each striking teacher.

However, a source at the Ministry announced that administrative measures will be taken against teachers who refused to give lessons to students.

The source explained that at least JD 15 will be detected from uncommitted teachers' salaries for each day they didn't give lessons to students.

Despite the Court's decision, the Jordanian Teachers Syndicate confirmed that teachers will continue striking and that the Syndicate will appeal the Court's decision within the legal period of 15 days, noting that the Syndicate shows full respect to the judiciary and impartial judiciary and that the union is committed to the law.

As for parents, many of them said they didn't send their children to schools today after teachers refused to give them lessons and asked them to leave and go to their homes yesterday. 

Roya staff were in the field this morning and took photos at some schools in Amman.
