Punjab to merge primary schools that have less than 20 students

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The education department in Punjab is going to merge government primary schools with less than 20 students. It will merge these schools with other government schools located within a kilometre.

However, the department will not merge the schools if there are no other government schools within a kilometre.

The Punjab government wants to ensure that no student has to travel farther than one kilometre to reach a primary school.

The government has also directed that pre-primary classes should begin in government schools.
