Teachers in the Indian state of Maharashtra, whose principal town is Mumbai, went on strike on Friday against the government's failure to fund their schools properly which has resulted in thousands of job losses. The striking teaching and non-teaching staff work at the 60,000 government aided schools across the state. A spokesperson said: 'We are opposing the state government's blatant refusal to stay a controversial decision which will render more than 45,000 teachers suddenly surplus. As a result millions of students will suffer and this could contravene the provisions of the Right To Education'.
