Ghani was speaking during a press conference at the Bilawal House Media Cell in Karachi, when he stated that he had already decided to hold yearly examinations for matriculation and intermediate courses in Sindh, but other provinces had still to make a decision.
He stated that following consultation with the steering committee, experts and other stakeholders in the education system, the Sindh Education and Literacy Departments had taken all the decisions.
The education department is currently working on 155 projects.
The minister went on to say that thousands of people had applied for the 37,000 open teaching vacancies.
The minister stated that he will go to the institute to assess the situation. Ghani stated this year that 155 education-related programs will be finished by June 2021.

Ghani stated that there was a severe lack of teachers in Sindh’s public schools and that the government had planned to hire 37,000 instructors through a third party.
They had made 2,247 shuttered schools operational by shifting instructors from other schools to the shuttered ones. The minister assured that the teacher shortfall will be addressed immediately following recruitment.
