Sukkur college has 42 Teachers for Two Subjects

KARACHI:20 April:As public schools and colleges across Sindh continue to face a shortage of teaching staff, the government has posted around 23 lecturers to teach a single subject in Islamia Science and Arts College, Sukkur, it emerged on Tuesday.

Sharing details in the Sindh Assembly, Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) MPA Imtiaz Shaikh said, “Sindh government has broken its past record of mismanagement and nepotism. The example can be gauged from the fact that 23 lecturers for commerce and 19 for English have been posted at a single institute. I want to ask which rules have allowed the education department to appoint so many teachers for the same subject,” he said while moving an adjournment motion regarding Rs90 million spared by the government for the public schools’ up-gradation programme. Shaikh claimed not a single penny from this amount has been released so far.Dawn.
