The latest debate over teachers being absent from work could be attributed to several factors and the best way to obtain worthwhile/meaningful information is to ask/allow teachers who falls within this category to explain themselves. Because there could be reasons elevated to this general statement about absenteeism.
There are multiple expectations from different players such as: from the students, parents, public, school admin, education authority, Ministry of Education and from the teachers. There are overarching issues/tensions from the teachers' point of view. The battle over fulfilling the noble call/obligation to the students and their terms of conditions which is paramount to sustain/comfort them while executing their duties.
I believe it is everybody's' responsibility to monitor the situation and become part of the solution, rather than squarely blaming the teachers.
