KP Private Schools Association Warns of Protests if Schools Don’t Reopen Next Week

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Private Schools Association (PSA) has warned to protest against the provincial government if it doesn’t resume academic activities before mid-June.

In a meeting of private school owners and teachers at Garhi Habibullah, Mansehra, Chairman PSA Muhammad Naeem Awan said:

If the government wants to prolong the lockdown of schools and colleges in the province, then it should pay us buildings’ rents, teachers’ salaries, and exempt educational institutions of tax at least for one year, otherwise we are going to launch an agitation by June 15. KP government has allowed businesses and shops to reopen under strict SOPs. It should do the same with schools and colleges.
