Jordan: Teacher unionists released, but pressure on government continues

See all tags

Education International welcomes the release of the detained education union leaders in Jordan, after a concerted global campaign highlighting their situation.

For Education International, the global media coverage, statements by global unions and human rights organisations, including the United Nations, letters, the LabourStart online petition, and social media campaigns put significant pressure on the Jordanian government. As the new school year starts next week in the country, the government might also be willing to avoid further teachers’ protests.
