LAHORE: Punjab Schooling Minister Murad Raas stated Wednesday that the province would improve as many as 800 secondary colleges to the elementary stage in a bid to enhance the training system.

Talking in the course of the “Subah Say Agay” present on Hum Information, Raas stated that below the “Insaf Afternoon School Programme” the training ministry has upgraded a number of secondary colleges to elementary ones already.

The minister added that he took the initiative to extend the colleges’ enrollment as he was knowledgeable {that a} “shocking” 70% of pupils dropped out after finishing main faculty training.

“So when I got the data, I thought that building schools would take us nearly 2-3 years and millions of rupees would be spent on it, which we don’t have,” he stated.

“To overcome this challenge, we upgraded primary schools to elementary and asked the teachers — who give tuitions in the evening — to teach classes 6,7, and 8,” he stated, including that as compensation, the federal government supplied them with an honorarium.

The elementary colleges that perform within the afternoon, in keeping with Raas, introduced 22,000 college students again to the classroom, including that almost all of them have been women. 

“We had to expand this pilot project and open 800 schools, but were unable to do so due to COVID,” he stated. “We’d open new schools this year.”
