Delay in hiring of teacher assistants costs students heavily

CHITRAL, Oct 24: In order to facilitate teaching and learning process on a temporary basis in government colleges, the KP government introduced the selection of teacher assistants through ETEA tests. Applications from the candidates were collected in April and the test for the posts were held in May 2014. Since conducting of the test in May 2014, the candidates have been waiting for their appointment by the Higher Education Department. It is pertinent to mention here that the academic session starts in Malakand Division in the month of August and continues up to April of the next year when examinations are held for FA and F.Sc. Hence the academic session is at the peak from August to December in the whole Malakand belt. Three precious months of students have almost wasted in the area due to non-appointment of teacher assistants by the Higher Education Department and the problem is still persisting and students are still facing shortages of faculties in their colleges. The higher authorities are requested to expedite the selection process of the teacher assistants as three precious months of students have already wasted and further delay in the appointment will leave the purpose of the new posts meaningless. Because from December 23rd up March of the next year all the colleges will be close. Nasir Mehmood]]>
