A teacher who included a contentious topic about the immigrant (muhajir) population in the province has been blacklisted by the Sindh Board of Technical Education (SBTE).
Details indicate that a teacher had asked the students to describe the issues caused by the province’s decision to accept a significant number of immigrants.
In the final paper for Islamiat/Pakistan Studies/Ethics, the students of DAE third-year were asked about the extremely divisive issue.
Dr. Masroor Sheikh, Chairman of the SBTE, stated that the instructor who created the test has been placed on a blocklist and that the Controller of Examinations SBTE has been instructed to guarantee that questions are checked before being finalized.
Additionally, Chairman SBTE expressed his regrets to the immigrant community and gave them his word that the board would take intense action to prevent future occurrences of this kind.
In the meantime, SBTE has just issued a circular to denounce the occurrence rather than sending out a notification to begin departmental proceedings against the concerned teacher.
