Chandigarh, November 23 :
With an aim to bolster the school education system, School Education Minister of Punjab Harjot Singh Bains has launched campaign to bring back the teachers assigned other duties or deputed in different offices instead of teaching in schools for a long time
Giving the information, Minister Bains said here today that he has received reports from the field that some employees of the school education department are assigned jobs in different offices instead of teaching the students in the schools, which is causing a lot of damage to the education of the students in the state.
Mr. Bains said that in this regard complete data has been sought from the district education offices and they have been directed to furnish details about the name and position of the employee who left the school and how long they have been on duty outside the school and also by whose orders this appointment was made.
After collecting all the information, they will be brought to school with immediate effect.
Education Minister Mr. Bains also said that if any school head or district officer tries to conceal the data of an employee, a stern departmental action will be taken against them. He said that teachers will solely concentrate on teaching work and not be assigned any other task.
Reiterating his commitment to raise the standard of education in Punjab and develop a best school system in the country, Bains said that he is working diligently to improve the education system to yield good results in the future.
