Teachers Fail to resume back After Schools Reopen in Zimbabwe

Teachers went on strike on February 7, disrupting learning as schools reopened for the first time in 2022 after Covid-19 delays. 

In response to wage erosion caused by inflation and a weak currency, all teacher unions have declared “incapacitation.” Thousands of leaners were turned away at day schools across the country in a rare show of unity by teachers backed by a headmasters’ union.

Previously, the government offered teachers a 20 percent pay raise retroactive to January 1, with the equivalent of $100 in foreign currency beginning in March 2022.

Teachers who failed to report for duty have also been threatened with disciplinary action by the government, with heads of offices being ordered to suspend those found guilty.

Teachers have been claiming for years that high inflation has reduced their salaries to nothing. Zimbabwe’s economy has been in decline for more than a decade, with foreign currency scarcity being a major factor.
