“The average monthly salary of some teachers exceeds 600 manats,” he said. “There are teachers in the education system who receive salaries worth more than 1,000 manats in accordance with the workload and the teaching experience. The teachers of certain categories receive 700, 800 and even 900-1,000 manats. This means that their salaries increased by 20 percent."
