The PTI chief asked the provincial government to take steps for making the college level educational institutions fully autonomous and responsible.He said that since colleges were feeding universities, therefore, their standards must be raised to the optimum level. To achieve this goal, he added, principals of the colleges must also be made answerable.

Imran Khan stressed the need for strengthening HED at the strategic level to ensure that skills of graduates are highly employable. He said the present KP government must make difference in its performance compared to the other two parties which had been in power for six times.

The PTI chief also proposed to showcase the implementation of “School Improvement Plans” in 64 schools by Rs 33.29 million which were raised through donations, for further fund mobilization through social media.

Thanking DFID for helping the KP government to improve the standards of education, the chief minister said the provincial government was making all required financial resources available for the education sector and spending 29 percent of its budget for improving the state of education and it did not get even a single penny loan for this purpose.

The chief minister directed the HED to accelerate the work on the establishment of university in Chitral. He ordered transport facility to the teaching staff of government colleges within this month.

Sahibzada Muhammad Saeed said that merit would be ensured for school-based recruitment of teachers. “Posting and transfers will be checked and availability of teachers will be ensured through another proposed law which had been sent to the Law Department for vetting and it would be implemented by the next April,” he explained.
