Comments: 

Check if measures or programmes adopted by the State to reduce teacher absenteeism take into account the specific factors that contribute to this phenomenon in the country, which may include, inter alia, school material conditions, administrative breakdowns (eg non-payment of salaries), health (including care for family members in the absence of any other social care structure) and inadequate transportation systems. In a country with high levels of teacher absenteeism, lack of specific measures to combat this problem may constitute a violation of the State's obligation to make education accessible
