In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, one hundred and fifty schools have been sealed as they reopened without taking any permission from the authorities.
All the sealed schools are not allowed to conduct any online classes or charge any fee from the students. The authorities have also prepared new Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for educational institutions.
Many private schools were against the decision of reopening schools in different phases. Therefore, the government took action against 150 schools that reopened without permission and violated the order.
Moreover, twenty-five institutions were sealed in Swat as well. Their principals got arrested but on the command of the Chief Minister, all the principals were released. Two schools in Abbottabad, Karak, Bannu, and Haripur were also sealed, forty schools were sealed in Charsada, and twenty were sealed in Peshawar. The government also imposed penalties on different schools.
More than a hundred schools in Swat, Nowshera, Karak, Abbottabad, Peshawar, Haripur, and Mardan have received notices.
On the other hand, the Inter-Provincial education ministers’ conference on Monday has finally allowed all colleges and universities to reopen from September 15th.
