Women colleges facing problems in Sialkot

SIALKOT: The Sialkot city’s main government colleges for women are facing a lot of problems and the concerned officials of the Provincial Education Department have miserably failed to chalk out any effective strategy for the amicable solution of these problems, including the shortage of teaching staff and classrooms besides other basic facilities.Govt Post Graduate College for Women Sialkot has more than 7,000 students on role and there are only 55 teachers available to teach such a big number of the students in this college. The overcrowded classrooms present a scene of a public meeting, when some teachers give them the lectures.

As many as 110 posts of lecturers and professors of different subjects are sanctioned for this college, out of which the college has only 65 teachers and 10 teachers are on a long leave. Thus, only 55 teachers are available to teach more than 7,000 girl students in this college.The students and their parents have expressed grave concern over this critical situation and urged the provincial government to make sincere efforts for overcoming the shortage of teachers in this college. Meanwhile, there are only 14 teachers for more than 4,000 students of Govt Allama Iqbal College for Women Sialkot due to which the students were facing great difficulties in getting education.
