KP Assembly Adopts Resolution to Have Psychologists in Schools & Colleges

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) assembly has adopted a resolution to have psychologists included as faculty in schools and colleges to cater to the students’ emotional, behavioral, and educational needs.

Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Ayesha Bano presented the resolution which was passed with majority approval.

It stresses on the need of having a psychologist as a permanent staff member to improve students’ ability to learn and the teacher’s ability to teach.

The resolution says that in this competitive world, the students have so much pressure to deal with that it often ends up overwhelming them.

Due to lack of awareness, children are prone to drug abuse and suicide attempts. Such incidents are on the rise in society.

The resolution demands that the province’s schools charging Rs. 5000 or more in fees should appoint a permanent psychologist for students; whereas, schools charging less should at least arrange a weekly session.

  • Suggestion to the proposal from the Honorable MNA Madam our current majority issue is literacy, education to the poor/Lower Middle Class youth for their literacy/wellness.
    Recitation of Holy Quran from day one with translation should be the first step to mental awakening of the youth/child.
    Already the fees are beyond the reach of common population, the psychologists spirit is excellent. But we cant afford them.
    Yes counselling of students, they run from school, they’re not inerested in schooling, attitude issue, a lot of things are heriditery from family/parents.
    With blessings for your initiatives, and volunteering spirits.
