The Secondary School Teachers Association and student representatives renewed an ongoing wave of strikes on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the association announced that secondary schools throughout Haifa would strike on Wednesday. Teachers are demanding an improvement in the wage schedule and an increase in the number of early retirement packages offered to educators. University students were continuing their battle for an answer to issues surrounding the lowering of tuition fees.
