Meanwhile, sources told The Express Tribune that the additional secretary expressed displeasure over FDE for more than 300 incomplete annual confidential reports (ACR). The official said that non-completion of ACRs after seven years must be investigated.

The directorate instructed to complete the ACRs in two weeks and, in the meantime, refrain from organizing another meeting. The committee decided in principle to promote educators with single ACR to the next grades as well.
