Govt school teachers protest against posting out of district

PESHAWAR    -    Peshawar Schools Officers Pres­ident Jaddi Khan Khalil on Mon­day demanded of the Khyber Pa­khtunkhwa Government to stop discrimination against the senior teachers of government schools in Peshawar by posting them out of the district. 

He said that many senior teach­ers in grade 17 and above, who are residents of Peshawar, had been posted in the government schools of other districts while many such teachers from other districts were posted in Pesha­war. He said that it was an injus­tice for the teachers of Peshawar to serve in the far-off districts of the province without the facility of the official residence. 

Mr Jaddi Khan further said that it was almost impossible to trav­el from Peshawar to other dis­tricts daily while teachers from the rest of the province were posted in Peshawar because they had a political background. “Now we have established an associ­ation of senior teachers of Pe­shawar to make efforts for our rights,” he said. 

The teachers have elected Per­vez Iqbal as Senior Vice President, Muhammad Ayaz as General Sec­retary and Gul Shad Khan as Press Secretary of their association. They said that the teachers should serve the students in their respec­tive districts in a better manner.
