Quetta’s education department wants teachers to stand, and not use their mobile phones while they are teaching in the classroom.
A notification was issued on Monday to all schools in the city, barring teachers to sit on chairs or use their cell phones during class.
The move came after Balochistan secondary education department secretary, along with district education officer visited various schools on September 5.
In their visit, they observed that teachers did not have a serious attitude towards educating students and were more involved in their phones, using WhatsApp, Facebook and messaging.
All principals and headmasters were instructed to not provide chairs or tables to teachers and to keep an eye on the people who are violating the government’s orders.
The government said the strict orders were imposed to improve the quality of education and said action will be taken against those who do not abide by them.
