Punjab Schools Public Holiday 2024

Govt holidays in 2024 in Punjab, Punjab govt holidays 2024, The study has identified a number of factors responsible for lower schooling in rural areas. It is found that the government doesn’t pay attention to rural areas.

After Eid-ul-Fitr, the notification of new school timings was issued. The Punjab Education Department has issued a notification regarding the new working hours of schools after Eid. According to the notification, from April 26, schools will start at 7:15 a.m. while schools will be closed at 12:45 p.m. Schools will close at 11:15 a.m. on Friday. However, the double shift schools will open from 6:45 to 11:45 while the second shift will start at 12:15.

The government needs to make some policies that will cover rural areas. Pakistan’s standing on this front has historically been poor in the context of the public sector’s spending on education as its percentage in GDP is only 2.1 which is the lowest as compared to the other country of the region. Pakistan needs to increase the percentage of education in GDP it’s very low compare to Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and India they have more percentage in GDP than Pakistan.

This is a very big issue for Pakistan we can compete without education now education no development. If the government makes some policies for education then employment creates in education sectors and employment will increase then people will get a job and then their living style will change then society starts to change their thinking fashion everything.

Private education has a monopoly in rural areas they providing education but they are charging high it’s very difficult for villagers to pay high fees for their children. Due to high fees, many children cannot get their education then they reject the education go to the field with their fields, or doing the job on a low wage.

Then child labor involves in society and becomes the cause of the increasing illiteracy rate. Pakistan is one of the developing countries it should make some strong policies to control the illiteracy rate and for rural development. Rural development is necessary for Pakistan because most people live in rural areas. Raising the educational levels of the adult members in the household and increasing public awareness can have a significant positive impact on rural development.

Exams were suspended after March 13, but now institutions wishing to take the exams can do so from the second week of July. Examinations for university admissions have been directed to be extended to two days so as not to create crowds. Examinations will be held in an open field, the distance between students will be Six feet. Examinations will be monitored, examinations will be stopped if SOPs are not followed.

Instructions for parents: –
1. Send children to school wearing masks, even if it’s just clothes.

2. Never send children to school if they have a cough or symptoms.

3. If the condition worsens, the child should be tested immediately. The school should be notified if the corona test is positive.

It may be recalled that last month, it was announced to open educational institutions in the country from September 15, but it was made subject to the recommendations of the National Command and Operations Center and the approval of the Inter-Provincial Council of Education Ministers.
