The Salvation Government has decided to add a monthly bonus to the teacher's salaries.
According to a new resolution issued on September 27, directors of educational affairs in the regions will get LYD 300, educational inspectors LYD 250, school principal LYD 250, deputy principal LYD 200, and teachers will get LYD 5 for each class.
The resolution comes amid growing demands by teachers to increase their salaries.
The new school year started on Sunday but many schools, especially in Misrata, remained closed due to teachers' strike over pay and conditions. The teachers are also demanding health insurance like other government institutions.
The average salary for teachers is LYD 600 a month.
