Schools reopen in DR Congo

Schools in the Democratic Republic of Congo are reopening, a month after the initial date was postponed.

Teachers have said that schools are not ready to reopen and want learning to resume on 26 October, but the authorities have refused to postpone.

The initial reopening was scheduled for 3 October.

Some teachers’ unions have threatened to strike if salary arrears are not cleared. Teachers also want an audit to detect bogus teachers.
