Beaconhouse School System exploiting staff and teachers

Beaconhouse Schools, funded by DFID UK in Pakistan, are exploiting its teachers and staff. We received a report from its branch in the Gujranwala district where teachers are asked to work more than their contracted hours with the non-payment of overtime. 

Teachers are handed over take-home work even after working for extended hours in schools. 

Bullying and harassment are rampant in schools by senior management. As a result, mental health issues are on the rise.   

There is no right to form teachers and staff unions at its campuses. 

PTUS stands in complete solidarity with teachers and staff at Beaconhouse School system and will raise the voice of staff in all international forums for the rights of teachers and workers in the education sector
