I am directed to refer to the subject cited above.
2. Quality education for all is the top most priority of Government of the Punjab. Keeping in view the advancement in the field of Information Technology. Government of the Punjab is emphasizing on computer education. The Government has established more than 04 thousand computer labs in the schools and Computer / IT teachers have been recruited to teach computer subject to the students.
3. It has come into the notice of the Department that Head Teachers and District Education Officers have allocated different duties to the Computer / IT Teachers which are quite irrelevant to their job description. There is only one IT / Computer teacher in the school and in caseile / she is assigned duties irrelevant to his / her job description that will certainly affect the computer education of the students. Teaching of Computer is a technical task and ho teacher other than !T / Computer Teacher can teach computer subject properly. The engagement of IT / Computer Teachers in assignments other than teaching of Computer Science to the Students will certainly affect the Government vision towards IT.
4. In view of the above, I am directed to convey that IT / Computer Teachers should primarily teach the subject to the students and the Head Teacher / District Education Officers should not assign them any task that can compromise.their core of duty of teaching IT / Computer Education, this regard, instructions may be issued to the all Head Teachers for strict compliance.
