Has Punjab’s Chakwal banned co-education in public schools?: A ban was announced on co-education for girls and boys studying in classes six, seven and eight in the government schools of Chakwal by the deputy district education officer, Geo News reported Friday.
The Chakwal deputy district education officer issued an official notification to exclude the names of female students of grade 6, 7, and 8, studying in co-education setups from the enrollment lists of government schools.
But the Chakwal Education Authority chief executive officer took notice of the matter.
The authorities concerned gave an assurance that the names of the female students will not be excluded from the enrollment lists, but that they will be transferred to girls’ schools. They said that a reply has been sought from the deputy district education officer for issuing an incorrect notification.
