English teachers jobs | University status to two institutes

Job uncertainty for 600 teachers
Islamabad, June 02, 2008: Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) did not extend contract of over 600 English teachers till expiry date on Saturday (May 31), causing unrest among them. The teachers have not been informed of their status, clearing whether they are able to continue their jobs after the expiry of their contracts. FDE spokesperson Rafique Tahir said that contract of all teachers would be extended soon. He said the teachers would be more necessary if English was declared compulsory from Class 1.

Another official said the teachers were informed of their status one month ahead of expiry of their contracts in previous years but this year they had been left in the darkness.

He said the tense teachers feared they would be fired now because they had not yet got letters of extension of contracts. "There are rumours that contract teachers will be told that their services are no more required," a teacher said, adding some teachers were overage for any government job after serving the FDE for three year. He demanded confirmation of jobs of contract teachers. Daily Times
