The minister explained that they have been reviewing the cases, that includes data obtained from teachers with payroll problems.

According to the president of the Asociación Nacional de Educadores (ANDE) union, Gilberto Cascante, they have 6.000 reported cases of teachers who are owed their salary since the beginning of the school year in February.

The teachers are from some 300 public schools across the country, explained the ministry of Edcuation Human Resources Director, Yaxinia Díaz.

The problems with salary payments arose with the Ministerio de Educación Pública (MEP) adopting the Integra2 digital platform that excluded new teachers from the payroll.
