KATHMANDU: Nearly 200,000 teachers have not been able to get their salaries for the past three months after the private sector-run institutional schools were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The financial situation of the teachers of the schools has deteriorated after the source of regular income from the student fees of the private sector schools was cut off due to the closure of the schools.

Most of the private sector schools had started teaching through alternative means including online since April, but the teachers have not been able to get their salaries.

There are more than 2.2 million students studying in 7,000 privately run schools across the country.

Hom Kumar Thapa, President of the Institutional School Teachers’ Union, said that the teachers of the institutional schools could not get their salaries since the lockdown started, Gorkhapatra Daily reported on Sunday.
