Meanwhile, the local chapter of all primary teachers association has demanded of the Bannu educational board to pay remuneration to the teachers who performed duties during the fifth and eighth grade assessment, last year.
The demand was made at a meeting held in Tajazai on Saturday with association’s district president Haji Abdul Rahim in the chair.
The participants expressed resentment over delay in payment of remuneration to the teachers.
On the occasion, Mr Rahim said the provincial government had conducted assessment of fifth and eighth grade students through educational boards last year, but the teachers, who performed duties as superintendents, deputy superintendents and invigilators were yet to be paid their remunerations. He said different teachers’ bodies had repeatedly requested officials of the educational board to ensure payment of remuneration to teachers, but to no avail.
