FAISALABAD: The Education Department has decided to transfer the teachers 40 per cent of whose students did not pass the secondary school certificate examinations this year to other districts, Education Department Spokesman Muhammad Nabeel said on Sunday.
He said, “Action against these teachers and the heads of schools will be taken under the Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability (PEEDA) Act”.
High ups in the department have issued directives to the executive district officers in all districts to provide reports on the matric results by schools by Monday, said Nabeel. Action would be taken in light of these reports. The fifth and eighth grade examination results will also be considered, he said.
“The government spends a lot of money to provide facilities in government schools and has provided attractive salary packages for teachers, but all the top positions in the recent examinations went to students from private schools,” said Nabeel, “This is a matter of shame for government school teachers and heads.”
The department has decided that the teachers and heads of schools 40 per cent of whose students did not pass the examination would be transferred out of the district.
