According to Institutional School Teachers’ Union, an organization of private school teachers, over 300 teachers of private schools across Nepal have lost their job during four months of the country’s lockdown, from March 24 to July 22.
Hom Kumar Thapa, who is also the chairperson informed over 300 teachers have filed their complaints of job loss with the union. As many as 48 teachers of the Kathmandu valley have lost their job, according to Thapa.
Private schools across Nepal employ over 200,000 teachers and non-teaching staff. The union informed that the number of job losses, in reality, could be much higher than the received complaints.
