Punjab schools upgrade programme

LAHORE, Sept 12: Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi said on Tuesday that a programme to up-grade schools in the province was being started under the Education Sector Reforms Programme.

He told a meeting at CM's Secretariat that strengthening education was important for the province's socio-economic development and therefore the government had made an unprecedented increase in the education budget.

He said the teachers' training programme had been successful and was being continued to improve the standard of education. He also said 180,000 teachers had been trained under the programme. He said the provision of financial assistance to private schools in backward areas under public-private partnership had yielded encouraging results regarding the promotion of education.

Elahi said improvement in the standard of education was helping achieve the targets of social development and poverty alleviation. He said new teachers had also been recruited to make up the shortage of academic staff. He said an effective monitoring system had helped achieve the objectives of the Education Sector Reforms Programme.He said that because of free education and textbooks up to the matric level and monthly stipends to female students, there was a large increase in the number of enrolments in schools. He said the recently announced package of incentives for the teaching community would result in reviving their dignity and respect in society as well as the promotion of education. The chief minister told the Education Department to identity areas where there was a need to upgrade school so that better academic facilities could be provided to these areas. Daily times
