Honduran Teachers Back to Schools

Tegucigalpa - Honduran teachers decided to return to classes after five weeks of protests to facilitate dialogue with the government about their job demands.

The new measure responds to President Porfirio Lobo's proposal of resuming talks if the teachers returned to classrooms, said at a press conference the leader of the Federation of Teachers' Organizations of Honduras (FOMH), Edgardo Casaña.

He explained that consultation with the bases determined to reconsider the fight and give time to carry out a dialogue with President Lobo.

However, he said that if there is no agreement they will return to the streets on April 16.

The teachers stopped their work for more than five weeks to carry out street protests where they had to face police repression, one person died and dozens of people were injured and arrested.

Among their demands are outstanding payments to about six thousand teachers, respect for the Teachers Statute, which includes the achievements of the sector over decades, and to reverse a law that will lead to the privatization of public education and will affect the poorest people.
