550 high school teacher applications rejected

KARACHI, Sep 8: Around 550 out of 2,250 high school teachers (HST) applications were rejected while issuing admit cards for the written test. Rejected applicants blamed the education department concerned.

The Secretariat of Education rejected these applications because of low academic qualifications. However, during the submission of applications at EDO Education (for School), the duty officer received them with normal BA/BSc/BCom qualifications which were ultimately rejected.

"The education secretariat clearly mentioned at the announcement that the minimum qualification for HST application was B.Ed," said an official from the secretariat. "We cannot do anything now but reject anyone who had made mistakes in submitting applications."

However, he blamed the EDO Schools' office which was the application-receiving authority for this mess. "This mismanagement would have been tackled if the receiving authority verified all the applications while receiving them," he added.

A total of 548 male and 1,702 female candidates submitted applications for the HST test which will be held on September 9 at the Still Town Higher Secondary School. Admit cards are being issued at the District Office (DO) for Education, Karimabad, where a mass crowd was reported. "The distribution of admit cards among such a huge number of applicants within such little time is a serious mistake," said a DO official under the condition of anonymity.

Distribution centres should have been set up at another location. The 550 rejected applicants were complicating the situation further, he said. "In any case of rejection the applicant starts arguing and demands a justification which wastes time."

However, rejected applicants protested against those responsible. They demanded that action should be taken against the EDO Education for Schools' officials, who were responsible for receiving applications. Daily times
