1,700 primary teachers await promotions

KARACHI, May 7(PPI) - Despite setting up a high-level committee by Sindh Education Secretary Sabhago Khan Jatoi for promotion of over 1,700 primary school teachers, no progress has been made so far.

According to sources in the education department, a committee was constituted in mid April to review promotion of primary teachers from their present grade of BPS-9 to BPS-14. The committee, headed by Education Secretary Sabhago Khan himself, had to sort out and submit its recommendation within a week, but the matter was yet to solved.

It may be recalled that the matter of primary school teachers' promotion had been pending for long time and there was resentment among the teachers due to the inaction by the authorities in this regard.

The sources said the committee might take another month to submit its report for promotion of primary teachers to BPS-14. Recently, a delegation of primary school teachers led by Muneer Ahmed Bhatti also called on Minister for Education Dr Hamida Khuhro and requested her to take notice of their delayed promotions.
