FDE teachers promotions hit snags
Islamabad, April 23: The up-gradation of teachers under the directives of Prime Minister Yusuf Raza
Gilani on Teachers Day hits snags because the departmental promotion committee
devolved after the devolution of the Education Ministry.
well placed sources, the issue regarding one grade up-gradation of teachers,
which was apparently close to be resolved, has lingered on as the relevant
ministry has been devolved.
The departmental promotion committee, a
department that is supposed to look after the promotion matters of the teachers,
was also dissolved which further delayed process of the promotion of teachers. A
summery to constitute the new committee has been moved after which one could
hope that the promotion of teachers would take place in line with the teachers
package announced by the PM, the source said.
It is pertinent to mention
here that it was actually the delay in implementation of teachers package that
Federal Directorate of Education (DG) Shaheen Khan has been removed from her
post and the new charge has been given to Chaudhary Nazir Hussain.
teachers demanded appointment of a permanent and professionally competent DG for
the FDE as they were extremely disappointed by the unprofessional attitude of
the DG and wanted her immediate removal from a very important post. However, the
new DG who has been temporarily placed as FDE DG didn t show any notable
progress on the issue so far.
Teachers Association (FGTA) President Azhar Mahmood Awan said that the whole
teachers community was having high hopes with the new management. We believe
that under the leadership of FDE DG Chaudhary Nazir Hussain things may come back
on track, he said while adding that his actions regarding restructuring of the
FDE are also highly appreciated by the teachers community.
He said they
were also having hopes with the newly appointed Secretary CAD Division Junaid
Iqbal and Professor Muhammad Rafique Tahir, Joint Secretary (Edu/establishment)
CAD division. We have full faith in the professional competency of the newly
appointed management and hope that the implementation of teachers package would
not take any longer, he said.
CAD Division Joint
Secretary Rafique Tahir said that approval has already been given for the
promotion of scale 9 to 14 and scale 14 to 16 of the teachers. There is no
problem in the promotion of teachers of grade 9 to 14. All we need to do is to
change the rules to implement what has been approved, he said.
however, said that promotion of teachers from grade 16 onwards would take time
as a summery regarding their promotion has been sent to Prime Minister Yusuf
Raza Gilani. A summery regarding promotion has been sent to PM after approval of
the Establishment Division and Finance Division. We are hopeful that the issue
would be resolved in near future, he said.
