Sources revealed the ministry stopped paying the salaries of several expatriate teachers who were stranded abroad, but it did not terminate their services.

Sources said the ministry has no intention to pay the salaries of these teachers retroactively upon their return to the country, even if they stopped working due to an emergency situation.

Sources added the ministry will start paying the salaries of these teachers from the date they resume work, indicating the work interruption period will not affect their annual performance evaluation as it happened under exceptional circumstances.
