MANSEHRA, June 26: A primary school in Narian area of Oghi has been closed for the last six months owing to lack of teachers, putting the future of more than 250 students at stake, residents say.
“We have approached the high-ups of education department many times to complain against closure of the school, but in vain,” said Mohammad Fareed, a resident of the area, here on Sunday.
He said that future of over 250 students was at stake owing to apathy of education department.
Flanked by a large number of other residents of the area, Mr Fareed said that two teachers were appointed at the school but both of them were absent from duty for the last six months. “Even annual examinations have not held as the school is closed,” he added.
He said that they had also informed the executive district office (Education) about the situation but to no avail. He alleged that the local MPA was also least interested to address the issues of people in his constituency.
He demanded of Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti to order an inquiry and take to task those people who were playing with future of the nation.
