One Education System: All Maktab schools in Mansehra closed down, teachers adjusted into regular gov!
The district education department, Mansehra, has closed down 120 Maktab schools, which were established in mosques, and teachers of these schools are being adjusted in regular schools of the department.
“We have wrapped up 120 Maktab schools as there were no or few students there, but teachers had been receiving salaries,” said district education officer Gohar Ali while talking to Dawn.
He said that Maktab schools were opened in different parts of the district, but there were no or very few students in these schools for last many years. “When we evaluated overhead expenses and teachers’ salaries being incurred on these schools we decided to wrap up these schools and adjust students in the nearby government schools,” he said.
Mr Ali said that the education department had been spending almost Rs1.8 million annually on these schools besides teachers’ salaries.
DEO says students of 120 such schools being adjusted in regular govt schools
He said that teachers who were posted at these schools could now play an important role in promotion of education in regular schools.
The DEO said that ending absenteeism in schools by teachers was his top priority and it was why nine circle heads in the district had been served with notices for the first time and their explanations sought in cases of teachers’ absence from duty.
“We want officials working as circle in-charge to perform their duty with honesty as teachers’ absenteeism would not be tolerated,” he said.
20 CASES SETTLED: The district reconciliatory committee (DRC) constituted by the police department to reduce burden on local courts has settled 20 cases since its establishment last month.
“We received 35 complaints about various issues and 20 of them have been settled after both parties accepted decisions taken by the committee,” said Sheraz Mehmood Qureshi, chairman of the committee, while speaking to mediapersons here on Friday.
The DRC chairman said that people from different walks of life approached the committee with their written complaints.
“We are satisfied with the performance of the committee which provided out-of-court settlement of cases submitted to it by the complainants,” he said, adding that issues related to property, marriage and other disputes were being brought before the committee for their resolution.
A member of the committee, Mazhar Hussain, said that office of the committee was established at the city police station where complaints were received and then put up for their resolution
