LARKANA: Sindh Gazetted Officers Associations of School Administration Central Vice President Manzoor Ahmed Mangi on Sunday said that there were no Taluka Education Officers (TEOs) for primary and secondary schools in the entire province.
He said that over 400 posts, each of basic pay scale (BPS) 17, were vacant. He also said that due to the non-posting of TEOs, it was vividly clear that mismanagement was at its peak in the school management department and only higher education officials were responsible for that.

The concerned government authorities should take notice of that, he added.
He said that the education system was being destroyed in a planned manner in Sindh.

He demanded that proper postings be made without loss of further time to save the future of the children of Sindh.
