Call for deputationist educators to be hired

Teachers on deputation at federal schools should be permanently inducted into the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) under the wedlock policy, according to lawmakers in the National Assembly on Tuesday.

Deputationist teachers met with MPs and asked them to intervene after the FDE issued repatriation orders to certain teachers who stated they had worked in the federal capital schools for numerous years and were therefore entitled to stay.

Under the wedlock policy, many female teachers from the provinces, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan are working in Islamabad.

A group of lawmakers, including Qadir Khan Mandokhel and Tahira Aurangzeb, claimed that the Federal Education Department (FED) frequently returns teachers to Pakistan despite an earlier order from Islamabad’s High Court directing the FDE director general to listen to teachers on an individual basis and to assist them under the country’s wedlock policy and on humanitarian grounds if needed.

FDE is taunting and agonizing long-serving teachers by issuing orders for them to return home, according to MPs, who argued that it’s unnecessary.

Teachers who had worked in FDE schools for more than five years and received no objection certificates from their original departments were also favored for permanent abduction, according to the group.

According to a parliamentary secretary, he and his colleagues are hopeful that the education ministry would take efforts to release teachers’ held-up salaries and that the situation will be resolved once and for all According to Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Speaker of the National Assembly, the education ministry needs to be proactive in this problem and an investigation should be launched.
