The teachers thumbed up to government for initiating dialogue and expressed the wish to see this continue by exploring “ways of reaching out to the parties in the ongoing conflict and of addressing the grievances that provoked the crisis in the first place.”

Concerning the new school year, they called on all those hindering students and teachers from going to school to desist from these acts and stressed school boycotts can never be the ultimate solution.

“(We call on ) all those standing in the way to give peace a chance and allow deprived, nay, sacrificed children return to school, and their teachers to resume their functions in an atmosphere of peace and security, given that education is the springboard for any form of development and because school boycott as a grievance-expressing measure cannot go on ad infinitum,” they said.
