Rawalpindi: Decision has been taken to send the teachers of government schools of Rawalpindi district home on pre mature retirement if  they are found suffering from chronic diseases. Punjab government has decided to re-conduct medical test of male and female teachers of all primary, middle, high and higher secondary schools of district Rawalpindi in this connection and directives for arranging medical test have been issued to EDO Education Rawalpindi. If any teacher is found suffering from any chronic disease he or she will be sent home under pre-mature retirement mode. The teacher’s organizations have voiced strong protest against these orders of provincial government. They termed this step anti education and rejected it  demanding that if any chronic disease is detected during medical check-up then government should arrange treatment of the teacher rather than sending him or her home. We will resist this decision and will stage protest rallies if teachers are sent home, they added.
