The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly has passed legislation in order to regularize over 38,000 teachers in the province.
The bill ‘KP Teachers Appointment and Regularization of Services Bill, 2022’ was passed on Monday.
Addressing the floor of the house, the Provincial Minister for Education, Shahram Khan Tarakai, congratulated the teachers and urged them to fulfill their duties with commitment so that the newer generations can work for the development and growth of the country.
In June, the KP administration announced to regularize thousands of school and college teachers, hundreds of doctors, and ex-FATA project staff.

In addition, the District Education Department (DED) Mansehra had also promised to issue appointment letters to the hundreds of teachers recruited in the public schools and colleges.
The development came after the KP’s Directorate of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESD) allowed DED Mansehra to issue appointment letters to 900 teachers.
