Primary school teachers jobs
Karachi: An international agreement bars the Sindh government from recruiting certain candidates as primary school teachers, who despite having passed the selection test, did not meet certain criterion, stated Senior Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq.

The minister was replying to a question raised in the Sindh Assembly by PML-F's Nusrat Abbasi on the status of 250 candidates, who camped outside the Karachi Press Club for more than a month.

The protesters, who suffered the wrath of the police water cannon on more than one occasion, demanded their appointments and said that they had met the criterion for getting a job by securing 60 percent marks in their tests held at the Sindh University.

However, despite this, the candidates were not given jobs.

They pointed out that only 6,500 of the 14,000 posts had been filled. The demonstrators alleged that the candidates holding BEd or MEd degrees were given preference and for primary school teachers, no such criterion existed in the rules.

Haq explained that in the year 2007-8, the Sindh government and the World Bank signed an agreement of $100 million. "There were four points in the agreement; the first was teachers' recruitment, the second Rs1,000 stipend for girls, the third provision of missing facilities in schools and the fourth free books and bags for students."

Apart from this there were two other conditions. "A female candidate was to be given 20 extra marks and if the candidate had a graduation degree, then they would be given 10 extra marks." The minister alleged that the previous government gave away seats on scores of just 40 percent. "The result was that the World Bank got irritated."

This year, the donor agreed to approve a grant of Rs8 billion. "In accordance with it, 5,000 teachers were recruited after the IBA Sukkur test and 8,000 more following the Sindh University test."

The minister said that they could not afford to recruit more teachers as it would cause a loss of Rs800 billion to the province.

"We have announced new vacancies of 9,000 teachers. The protestors should apply for another test and if they pass on merit, they will be hired," the minister said. He added that this was the same reply that he gave to the Sindh High Court as well. The news
