Minister for Education, Naeem Akhter Monday said that the government will “redesign and rejuvenate” the entire education system for which “Policy is being formulated”.
Referring to new Transfer Policy, Akhter said, “Policy is just and pragmatic and will redress the problems of our teaching community who feel being held hostage to transfers.”
The Minister also reviewed the functioning of Education department in an officers meeting at Government College of Education and said that the diffused focus has adversely affected our education system as infrastructural development got all the attention and education system’s potential was not optimally used.
“Teaching atmosphere needs to be made conducive by giving proper attention to both teacher and taught,” he said.
