'Package for teachers next month'

LAHORE, Aug 28: Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi has said that the government would announce a 'lucrative' package for teachers next month under which their salaries and basic pay scales would be increased along with providing them with necessary facilities.

The CM said this on Monday while talking to reporters after the prize distribution ceremony organised by the Care Foundation for outstanding students who performed well in the matriculation examinations. He also announced an annul grant of Rs 50 million for the foundation and said the CARE Foundation was providing quality education to 114,000 children from low-income brackets of society in 182 schools, which was commendable. The foundation is a welfare trust that aims at providing education to the poor.

Elahi said due to the government's Educational Reforms Programme an additional 2.2 million children had been enrolled in educational institutes because they were provided free education and course books up to matriculation and girl students with scholarship.

Elahi said the promotion of education was essential for national development and prosperity, but objectives for the education sector could not be achieved without restoring teachers' dignity and respect and that for this reason the government was bringing about fundamental changes in the teachers' service structure. He that 100 colleges in the public sector were being made model colleges under the private-public partnership, which would help in improving educational standards.

He said the government had targeted to enroll 10 million more children which would increase the literacy rate in the country. He said missing basic facilities in the province's 64,000 schools had been provided and that 45,000 schoolteachers had been recruited while 30,000 schoolteachers were being recruited.

He also congratulated students who secured top positions, their parents as well as teachers of the educational institutes run by the foundation. He said students should concentrate on their studies as the future of the country depended on them. Daily times
