College teacher, Andijan district, June 2017

“A return trip to Bogishamol from the place where I live costs me 6,000 Som every day. If we are not in Bogishamol at 7 o’clock in the morning, they deduct 30 per cent from our monthly salaries. I cannot afford this because I have to pay for my son’s studies. This is why I do whatever they order in silence. In general, everyone has reasons for doing silently what they are ordered to do. No one speaks out, but teachers left their hard work and tears in Bogishamol.”
