Sindh to Recruit 20,000 more Teachers
Karachi :October 06: Amid allegations of widespread irregularities in hiring teachers, the Sindh government has announced recruiting 20,000 more government school teachers.
The plan was unveiled on the World Teachers’ Day by the Sindh education minister, who was speaking on Saturday at a ceremony held at the education and literacy department’s Reform Support Unit.
At the programme, Khuhro distributed offer letters among the successful candidates, who after passing the National Testing Service (NTS) examination were hired for the posts of high school teachers.
The schoolteachers would be recruited in a phase-wise manner purely on merit without wrongdoings in the process, said Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, as allegations of corruption had tainted the process of hiring teachers in the past.
He vowed there would be no nepotism or favouritism in the hiring process this time, admitting that in the past, there had been serious reports of malpractices to the extent that offer letters to favourite candidates were issued prior to the fulfilment of basic formalities, including filling of application form necessary for formally applying for the post.
Under the new “stringent criteria”, Khuhro said, it was compulsory for the prospective candidates to pass the test conducted by the NTS with high marks. No quota has been reserved for any quarter in the fresh recruitment drive.
The newly recruited teachers will remain in the government school, where their first posting is made for at least three years.
In the first phase, the offer letters for high school teachers are being distributed while in the second and third phases, the letters for the posts of junior school teachers and primary school teacher would be issued, respectively.
The education minister’s remarks come in the backdrop of reports of widespread irregularities in the hiring of a large number of schoolteachers in the previous tenure of Pakistan People’s Party.

 

The education department has launched a formal inquiry into the past recruitments of government teachers with the help of the anti-corruption unit.

 

Teachers’ day message

 

In his message on the World Teachers’ Day, Khuhro asked the media, civil society and parents to pinpoint the government schools and teachers who had not been performing efficiently.

 

“It is the foremost priority of the Sindh government to reopen dysfunctional government schools and it also expects the teachers to perform their duties with utmost honesty and sincerity,” he said.

 

The minister said he was willing to visit every village and town in Sindh to get such schools reopened. “No compromise would be made on the provision of quality education for school and college students.”

 

Khuhro said the statistics of schoolteachers working in the educational institutions across the province would be soon available online on the official website of the education department.The news.
