Teachers union to halt all non-classroom work in protest over reforms

The main high school teachers union has announced that instructors have been told to halt all work outside of classroom hours, amid an ongoing labor dispute with the government.

The union says teachers should not grade papers or other material, enter grades into the school’s system, attend end-of-year parties or other activities outside of normal school hours, or hand out graduation certificates, among other now-verboten activities.

The move is in response to “ridiculous steps” from Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton, according to a statement from union Ran Erez, referring to reforms to end of year testing requirements.

The move may delay graduation for high school seniors, Army Radio reports.
