Addis Ababa,15 December 2006

Based on the question raised from Ethiopian Teachers, Ethiopian Government has introduced a new career structure for teachers in 1995 which results in salary increment after evaluation based on qualification, experience and performance appraisal. But there was interruption of the activity from 2002 in Oromia and Amhara Regional states and from 2003 in Diredawa, Addis Ababa and Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Regions due to the complain from the government that the career structure is abused, i.e the evaluation is not being made according to the criteria set and it would be done depending on result oriented performance appraisal. But teachers and their association, ETA, opposed this and ETA's General Congress held in June 2003 in Addis Ababa requested the release of the interrupted career structure, otherwise peaceful demonstration will be held in October, 2003.
