PEF to collect teachers’ salary certificates from school partners
Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) has planned to collect teachers’ monthly salary certificates from its school partners. The partnering schools would also confirm that teachers are genuine school employees, and not relatives.
This was decided in a meeting of program directors which held on Wednesday at the head office with MD PEF Tariq Mahmood in the chair. The meeting held a detailed review of different programs’ expansion including teachers’ salaries. The meeting noted that PEF has already implemented a well- designed teachers training mechanism to sufficiently improve their professional capacities to give quality education in conducive atmosphere.
The meeting was apprised that Rs. 100 raise was made in student’s monthly fee by the PEF last year. It was, then, directed to the partner schools that half of the additional income would be used for increasing their teachers’ salaries so that they may feel encouraged. The meeting proposed that teachers’ salaries should be given by schools through the bank accounts. The meeting further proposed that schools should also state increase in teachers’ salary after the previous increase i.e. Oct. 2015 to March 2016.
