The government of Punjab allegedly chose to regularize all licensed educators across the country. More than 11,000 male and female instructors will become permanent workers.
As reported by the media, the School Education Department sent a summary to the joint office in this manner.
The new teacher recruitment policy also guarantees the regularization of contracted teachers, alongside the arrangement of new teachers.
The agreements of educators registered in April 2014 and 2015 had recently expired, following which the school education department granted them a one-year increase in the terms of the joint minister of education, Murad Raas.
Regularization approached in March-April of this year when the entire government apparatus was busy tackling the predominant COVID-19 pandemic.
In any case, the pastor then guaranteed the instructors that they would be regularized once the pandemic was over.
Raas said in an April 5 tweet:
Let me assure you that the choice of the question expressed will be in your favor. Workplaces are closed. We are currently working to prevent individuals from letting loose. I am stunned that saving lives and caring for the hungry is a necessity or a regularization.
Raas tweeted again on April 25:
The contracts of the SSEs and AEOs were extended for one year. I know this is not the solution. You all want to be regularized.
He also assured teachers to fix this issue permanently once the COVID-19 crisis is over.
