Major Shake-Up in Sindh Education Boards: Interim Government Removes Chairmen and Top Officials

The interim government of Sindh has undertaken a significant restructuring of the education sector, deciding to remove chairmen from three key education boards—Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK), Sindh Technical Board, and Larkana Board. The directive extends to various top officials, including secretaries and controller examinations of several boards. Dr. Prof Naseem Memon has been appointed as the head of the Board of Intermedia & Secondary Education Larkana (BISEL) until June 30, 2024. Additionally, audit officers in several boards have been replaced.

Notable changes include the removal of the interim controller of examination and secretary of BIEK, along with other officials in different boards. Sikandar Ali Miraj and Nadeem Soomro are returning to their original positions after being removed from BISEL. The interim provincial government has sought permission from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to make new appointments on the vacant posts, emphasizing the necessity of permanent appointments to enhance functionality. The letter to the ECP highlights the prevalent reliance on “stop-gap” arrangements in various education boards in the province. This move signals a significant shake-up in Sindh’s education administration, aiming to establish stability and improve the overall functionality of the education system.
