Teacher’s absence reduces students to 15
From Our Correspondent
OKARA: The number of students has decreased to 15 from 150 in just two years due to continuous absence of the lonely teacher from Government Girls Primary School, Makianwala, Depalpur.
Villagers told The News that they had donated four kanals and a building to the Education Department and Government Girls Primary School was established in 1993-94. They said that a hard-working teacher was posted there and the number of students increased to 150 through her efforts. They said that the Education Department transferred the lady teacher and appointed Razia Bibi her place in 2006. She alleged that the teacher often remained absent from the school and they lodged several complaints against her, but to no avail. They said that students had reduced to 15 due to non-serious attitude of the teacher.
About a fortnight ago, over 50 villagers led by Rafiq Ahmad Dogar, Chaudhry Ghulam Rasool, Muhammad Jamil, Niaz Ahmad Dogar and Chaudhry Riaz Ahmad sent an application to the Provincial Secretary Schools and the application was marked to the DCO. They said that the DCO referred the application to the district officer coordination for probe. They appealed to DCO Ihsan Bhutta to take notice of the matter and order action against the teacher.
