A Classroom in South Darfur Teachers in South Darfur, Sudan have struck this week because they have not been paid Some teachers in the Adela district have not been paid for nine months. These are teachers working under the most difficult conditions - in an area which has been racked by civil war - yet they are expected to work for no pay at all. This story is all too common in the Global South as regular readers of this website will know. Perhaps when the World Bank writes reports wondering how to 'make schools work' it might like to ask its highly paid researchers to start by wondering how teachers are supposed to work when they can't eat.
