CHITRAL: 64 teachers and staff of the Langlands school and College have through a resolution demanded replacement of the School Principal Mme Carey Schofield by 9th October failing which they will boycott classes and launch protest. They also demanded dissolution of the sitting board of governors and the school be taken over by the government and government educational policy be implemented.
Meanwhile a high level meeting chaired by the Chief Secretary KP and attended by members of the Board of governors and DC Lower Chitral considered the matter at length and said a follow up meeting would be held next week on the matter. Meanwhile the meeting decided to support the existing setup during the interim period and resolved that no one would be allowed to take law in their hands at any cost.
Though reportedly many teachers and parents of students support Mme Carey’s performance as principal, but their point of view has not come up as vigorously in the media compared to those who are opposing her. .. CN report, 04 Oct 2019.
