For the third day in a row, teachers in various government schools across the Kingdom continue their strike in an effort to get their demands, as their main demand is a 50% raise.

This comes after a new "round of negotiations" that ended without any solutions or an agreement after a meeting was held on Monday evening, September 9, 2019, between the Vice-President of the Jordanian Teachers Syndicate, the Minister of Education and Chairman of the Parliamentary Education Committee, Ibrahim Al-Budour.

Teachers' strike started on Sunday, September 8, 2019, where teachers went to schools, yet refused to enter classrooms or give lessons to students.

This had prompted nearly 1,500,000 students, which is the total number of public school students, to leave their schools and head to their homes.

In the meantime, students of private schools were given lessons as usual.
