'Old schools to be reopened on priority basis'
Karachi: The old, non-functional schools in the province are being reopened on a priority basis, and will be equipped with the necessary facilities as well as teaching staff, said Sindh Minister for Education Pir Mazharul Haq on Tuesday.
Haq pointed out that in the past, school buildings were constructed because of political pressure, even when they were already present in the area. Thus, the Minister added, undue burden was caused on the national exchequer and such buildings were used as 'Autaqs' as well as warehouses.
The minister said that it has been decided that those old development projects in which no work had been carried out as yet would be dropped from the list of the Sindh Education Department. He said that their allocated amount would be diverted to new projects, while also calling for the speedy completion of projects where 50 percent or more work had already been carried out.
The minister also pointed out that as per its obligations, the Sindh Education Department is recruiting teachers on merit. This, he further stated, would contribute towards enhancing academic standards in the province. He said that senior teachers would be promoted to the next higher grade promptly.
He informed that district committees have been formed to monitor the performance of the teachers as well as the schools. The news
