Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has announced that his government will soon launch an online portal for transfers and postings of school teachers.
He announced this in a tweet while stating that the portal will help eradicate corruption and ease the transfer of teachers. The provincial executive further stated that the system will spare the teachers from frequent visits to different offices.
The chief minister also said that the previous government had burdened the teachers with the responsibility of enrollment of students and their attendance. However, the present government is changing the rules by bringing reform programs in the education sector.
The department and the community will now bear the responsibility of enrollment of students. It is worth noting here that the provincial minister for Education, Murad Raas, had earlier announced the provincial education ministry will roll out an e-transfer policy to ensure that the teachers’ transfers are purely on merit and based on transparency.
