As soon as the government was changed, the issue of recruitment of 30,000 teachers in schools came to a head. In the first phase, 16,000 teachers were to be recruited in Punjab and 776 teachers in Lahore.
The issue of recruitment of 30,000 teachers in schools has come to a standstill. The number of vacancies for teachers in schools is 150,000. Recruitment of 30,000 teachers was planned in the previous government. And 776 teachers were to be recruited for Lahore schools.
A total of 2990 posts of teachers are lying vacant in the schools of Lahore. The present government has not taken any decision yet to fill the vacancies of teachers. There is an urgent need for recruitment to meet the shortage of teachers in schools.
According to the school education department, advertisements for the recruitments will be issued as soon as approval is received from the government. A summary for 16,000 recruitments has already been sent to the Punjab Chief Minister.
