KARACHI: Minister for Education Sindh Sardar Shah said Thursday the government plans on introducing licenses for teachers of schools and colleges across the province.

“Every profession — be it lawyers, doctors, engineers, and others — have licenses, and unfortunately, teachers don’t. We aim to change that and issue mandatory licenses,” he said while speaking to journalists after meeting a delegation of education reporters in Karachi.

The education minister said the government would soon complete the legal prerequisites and make it law in the coming months but did not give an exact time frame.
