On the ongoing teacher’s conference, the teachers expressed their protest while some left the meeting.

The meeting was held where the Addis Ababa university president D/R Admassu Tsegaye, vice president D/R Jelu Umer, the staff Director Temesgen Burka and Board Director Director Ato Kassa Tekle Berhan and were present alongside the teachers of Addis Ababa University.

The conference was to focus on the agenda selected on September 14-16 among teachers,students, parents and Administrations held in four meeting halls.

Before the conference started, the teachers asked for a moment of prayer to those who lost their lives due to the protest that has been going on, Oromia, Amhara and Gambella regions. After that previous agendas were raised yet they wanted to focus on the changes it has brought. It was then addressed that 5million birr was budgeted for the conference, but the teachers protested against the idea and addressed they would rather if the money goes to those who are suffering in their daily lives instead. After that, another agenda was brought up on the topic, What higher educational institutions contributed to the system throughout the 25 years, for discussion, yet many teachers left the meeting at that.
