‘Uniform education system’

Islamabad

August 5, 2016

Islamabad

The Federal Government Teachers Association (FGTA) has warned it will agitate after the ongoing summer vacation if the Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) doesn’t ensure uniform education system in Islamabad’s government schools and colleges.

The capital city has around 400 FG and 20 model schools and colleges with the latter having much better facilities and staff than the former.

Former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani had approved the upgradation of all FG schools and colleges to bring them on a par with model educational institutions some five years ago but the plan had been awaiting execution since.

“CADD minister Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry had promised to introduce uniform education system in Islamabad but the promise has yet to be fulfilled. We’re going to see CADD secretary and relevant officials today (Friday) on the issue and if they don’t do the needful, we will give a call for protests as soon as classes resume after the ongoing summer vacation,” FGTA president Malik Ameer Khan told ‘The News’ on Thursday.
