Distance and male/female school Issue:
* Male teachers sent to female teachers’ schools. The SED HAS transferred teachers 40 to 70 km away. School education has rationalized senior-most teachers.

* In 2014, under the guise of rationalization, hundreds of EST teachers have shifted to primary schools. So, Later, after severe protests by teachers’ organizations, these teachers have sent back to their first schools but in different districts of Punjab including the Attock district. Many EST teachers have posted in primary schools since 2014. They should be sent back to their first schools.
* The Punjab Education Minister has also said that the teachers have to take their Corona test out of their own pocket before the school opens. So, In this era of inflation, an additional economic burden has been placed on poor teachers. If the corona test is mandatory, the government should officially conduct the corona test of teachers at its own expense.
*However, If the government of the time really claims education-friendliness and certainly wants to raise the standard of education, then it is imperative to take the teachers’ organizations into confidence, otherwise the fight for their legitimate rights against this pedagogical policy will continue. Yes, success and failure are in the hands of Allah. With his help, we will continue our struggle.
