Regularization of AEO and SSE Punjab
Assistant education officers (AEO) and Secondary School Educators (SSEs) from all districts of Punjab are protesting in Lahore for the regularization of services. For the first time in the history of the province, these officers were posted in all 36 districts of Punjab through competitive examination. The National Testing Service was a testing agency. The policy directed the District Recruitment Committees of all the 36 districts of Punjab to interview the successful candidates in the written examination of NTS and to hire Assistant Education Officers on a contract basis. Candidates who scored at least 60 marks out of 100 in these exams were eligible to submit an application. There is no doubt about the qualifications of those who pass this rigorous test. In addition, transparency and merit were ensured by the Department of School Education.
Third-party verification teams also deployed which checked the recruitment process in all the districts to ensure merit. Now Government Punjab demanded these candidates to give the examination of PPSC. The question arises, what is the justification for re-examining/interviewing the officers posted after conducting a written examination and interview for a post? They are fed up with the government slogans and repeated promises of permanence for the past two years. There are all-out protests in Lahore on 19-03-2021 and we will continue sit-in till permanent of services.
The Assistant Education Officers of Punjab want unconditional regularization through PPSC or any other institution without any further test/interview. Furthermore, through effective communication and cooperation with their teams, they have effectively changed the ground realities of the School Education Department Punjab.
