Dilapidated: Rehabilitate govt school by May

SUKKUR:12 April:According to local residents Ghulam Qadir Mahtam and Nazir, only one teacher was taking classes at the school by 2014 and could not manage to teach all the students from class one to five. Consequently, parents started taking their children out of the school and there came a time when all the students had been shifted to other schools in Rohri. At present, the school has not been functioning for two years.

When visited, the school was in a deplorable state. The building was in a shambles while the boundary wall surrounding it had collapsed. Closure for two years had been enough to turn the place into ruins.

A teacher of the nearby Pyaro Khan Chohan Primary School for Boys, requesting anonymity, told The Express Tribune that two teachers are still officially posted at the closed school and are drawing salaries for services they do not perform.

He added that the director of primary education, Zaibunnisa Mangi, visited his school last week and ordered the administration to allocate one room of their school to the teachers of the closed school. “We have given them a room in the upper portion of our school but both the teachers remain absent,” he said.Express Turbuni.
