DEA to seal schools not following security SOPs

Rawalpindi:December 11: District Education Authority (DEA) have decided to take action against public and private schools, particularly those not following Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), issued by the Punjab Government to ensure security of the students. It was decided in a meeting that the schools, violating orders of the government and not sufficient security arrangements, would be sealed. Special teams have been formed to conduct raids and check security arrangements of the schools. The teams would start inspection and monitoring of the schools from Monday. All the teams have been directed to compile data of the public and private schools at Union Council level within one week and the schools found violating the rules, would be sealed. It is pertinent to mention here that a number of public and private educational institutions of the city, particularly schools have not followed SOPs in true spirit regarding security arrangements. The emerging situation after recent attacks had warranted strict measures and necessary directions were also issued from quarters concerned in this regard but it seems it was somehow ignored by concerned quarters.The news.
