FDE Director General Dr. Ikram Ali Malik announced that the E-filling system will introduce in all schools and colleges. The AEOs have already introduced with this system.
This FDE Director-General Dr. Ikram Ali Malik states that, while talking to the participants of a ceremony held at the Islamabad Model College for Boys (IMCB) G-7/2 to inaugurate a tree plantation campaign in educational institutions of the capital on Monday.
According to reports, the FDE and all area education offices have already been computerized. In the second phase, all colleges and higher secondary schools will be shifted to the e-filing system.
The DG told the teaching staff at the function that until an e-filing system is put in place, they can communicate with the FDE through emails, regarding any issue. He makes sure to respond to the queries and issues promptly.
FDE, area education offices already computerized, official says:
“No need to waste your time in physically visiting the FDE as you are supposed to focus on teaching.”
Moreover, he notified them that the longstanding issues of schools and colleges will soon be resolved. FDE is working on Seniority lists of teachers, promotion cases, pension, and several other issues of teachers. Teachers do not need to panic at all.
Another major issue of operating 200 buses has resolved, as recently the federal cabinet allowed the FDE to run these buses under a cost-sharing formula. The buses procured a couple of years ago but remained off the road due to the absence of a mechanism.
Under the formula, 40pc expenditure will be borne by the government and 60pc will be met through cost-sharing under the school management committees, he added.
The DG acknowledged that the excellent quality of education of the FDE-run schools and colleges till the late ‘90s faced a decline during the last 15 years. He directed the teaching community to fully focus on improving the quality of education.
About the plantation drive, he said that all the 423 educational institutions had directed to plant at least 100 saplings each.
“This season, we will plant 1t least 40,000 trees in schools and colleges.”
He said schools having sufficient areas should plant more than 100 trees. Also, those lacking space should plant saplings outside schools.
Ikram said all grounds of schools should be well maintained and there should be no excuse that the institutions were facing a shortage of gardeners and other supporting staff.
While talking to the media, Teachers’ Association President Malik Ameer said:
Pakistan is amongst 10 countries vulnerable to climate change.
Besides other citizens, it is also incumbent upon teachers and students to plant trees and play their role to make the country green and clean. He said teachers of all schools will make the tree plantation campaign a success.
