Kohat BISE Board professors on strike

KARAK: The members of the Association of Retired Teachers (RPA) have threatened to go on hunger strike against the proposed merger of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary (WI) Kohat with Peshawar.

Speaking to reporters here on Monday, Secretary General retired RPA Prof Isam January Khattak said that the government had decided to abolish WI Kohat and Peshawar BISE merge with. It is a wise decision because it would not be possible to deal with computer science enterprise Peshawar with so many students, he added.

He said that the merger of the two education councils would create problems for remote students to resolve their problems instead of Kohat, Peshawar. He said that the government retain the experience in the fields of education, because it does not serve the students.

Mr Khattak said the government focus on the quality of education and for reform rather than testing the system to remove a plant. He said they would soon Kohat and Hangu associations contact areas to form a jirga at the divisional level and develop a common strategy that the government stop the merger of the two plates.
