“Angry Parents” stage march in Habib Bourguiba Avenue

The “Angry Parents” coordination called on Friday to prosecute the secretary general of the General Union of Secondary Education , Lassad Yaccoubi, holding him responsible for the boycott of examinations and the current crisis in the education sector.

Hundreds of parents of Tunisian students gathered on Friday in the capital to protest a teachers’ refrain from holding exams at schools across the country, calling for a return to regular classes.

For months the secondary education union has been demanding wage hikes, bonuses and the implementation of previous deals reached with the government.

Strikes have repeatedly disrupted the Tunisian school year, with most teachers failing to conduct first term exams or give out grades.

During the march which started from the municipal theatre in Habib Bourguiba Avenue to Mohamed Ali Square, representative of the coordination, Kaouther Ayari, indicated that several complaints have been filed with the Tunis Court of First Instance and other courts of the Republic.
