IT teachers unpaid for six months
TOBA TEK SINGH, Sept 12: Dozens of information technology (IT) teachers
and laboratory in-charges at government high schools of the district have not
been paid salaries for the last six months.
A group of teachers told
newsmen here on Tuesday that they had been recruited on a contract basis and
last time they were paid salaries after six months.
Executive District Officer (education) Malik Bashir Ahmad said he was unaware of
the issue as IT teachers were not paid from the budget of education department.
They were paid from a separate allocation, he said.
Meanwhile, a source
told this correspondent that funds for the provision of equipment and computers
to schools were provided by the World Bank while the amount under salaries head
was equally shared by the federal and provincial governments. Dawn
