Rawalpindi:Students of the Government Viqar-un-Nisa College for Girls have complained about the shortage of English teachers, as more than seven sections of different classes were without any English teacher.
According to college sources, students of five sections of second-year and two sections of first-year don’t have any teacher for English.
A second-year student told ‘The News’: “Almost one month has passed since the college opened after summer vacation, but so far the college administration has not been able to hire English teachers for various classes.” She said that the majority of students spend their time of English period either in cafeteria or playing.
A first-year student said: “We haven’t started studying English and it will become very difficult for us if the situation prevails.”
The mother of a student said: “We requested the principal to provide English teachers to students, but over a month has passed and no new teacher has been appointed yet.”
When contacted by ‘The News,’ Government Viqar-Un-Nisa College for Girls Principal Bilqees Akhtar said: “I have asked the director colleges to grant permission for recruiting new teachers.” She admitted to the fact that many sections of the college were without English teachers. According to her, some internee teachers were trying to fill in the gap temporarily. However, she was confident that the matter would be resolved soon.
Talking to ‘The News,’ Director Colleges Dr. Muhammad Ashraf said: “The orders for new recruitments are being issued from the secretary’s office. As soon as we receive the orders, we will recruit teachers on vacant posts.”THE NEWS
