Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said here today that the present State Government was contemplating to eliminate the longstanding condition of having a minimum of 100 students in government middle schools of the State for the recruitment of drawing teachers and physical education teachers.
It is pertinent to mention here that the previous BJP Government imposed the condition of enrollment of a minimum of 100 students for appointment of these teachers in the Government Middle Schools on 19th November, 2018.
He said that at present, Government middle schools were required to maintain a minimum enrollment of 100 students to appoint drawing teachers and physical education teachers. However, the present government is now dedicated to prioritizing the youth’s interests and ensuring that every student receives a comprehensive education.
The Chief Minister said that the Education Department has been directed to swiftly begin the process of eliminating the same. This proposed change is aimed at expanding educational opportunities and strengthening the teaching workforce throughout the state, he added.
