Because of an increase in complaints about teachers’ absence, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has installed artificial intelligence (AI)-based camera devices in schools to monitor students’ and teachers’ live attendance.
Zarif-ul-Mani, Managing Director (MD) of the Elementary Schools Education Foundation (ESEF), stated that the AI-based attendance system in foundation schools will maintain educational quality and improve student performance.
He also described how the School Management Information System (SMIS) aims to ensure accountability, quality, and the simple transfer of scholarship funds to partners.
Furthermore, he praised the ESEF’s e-governance unit for redeveloping this previously mismanaged initiative.
The project would also work to reduce dropout rates while ensuring that classes start on time and teachers are present.
Previously, the Sindh government decided to take harsh action against teachers who receive their salaries while sitting at home and not performing their duties.
According to reports, the provincial education department has stopped paying over 2,000 ghost teachers across the province.
In response to the decision, Education Secretary Sindh, Akbar Laghari, stated that they have written a letter to the Auditor General (AG) Sindh to stop the salaries of 2,019 ghost teachers.
He also stated that the department will fire the ghost teachers and that it will go to any length to ensure that teachers attend school.
