The school education department has decided to give preference to science teachers in the teacher recruitment process. Recruitment of Drawing, Arabic, Physical Teachers posts stopped. The step is taken to promote science education in the schools. However, the authorities may have missed that only a healthy body can have a healthy mind. Students need to be physically active to perform better in their studies.
Similarly, the importance of drawing cannot be ignored as it polishes the abilities of the students having creative aptitude. Social sciences are being ignored at the higher education level already, now the decision of the school education department will only add to the problems faced by the nation by neglecting one of the most important domains of studies.
According to the details, the School Education Department has changed its recruitment policy for teachers. It has decided to give priority to science subjects instead of arts. The posts have been changed to PST, EST, and SST. The next teachers will be recruited in grades 14, 15, and 16. Education Authority officials say some seats have been changed to promote science. In the future, science teachers will be hired who will also specialize in drawing, Arabic, and physical education.
