Parents awaiting for Summer vacation in Punjab as Heat index is increasing.
As Ramazan is starting by end of May and also temperature index is going hight, the Punjab government has decided that summer vacations in public schools and colleges across the province will start from May 23.
The Punjab Education Department said the early start of summer vacations has been announced due to hot weather and the arrival of Ramazan in May last week.
On the other side private educational institutes have refused to accept the directives. They say that they have already scheduled exams until May 30 and this is why it would not be possible for them to close down from May 23.
Talks were held between the government and private schools representatives on the issue, but a consensus could not be reached. Hopefully government will ask private schools to start exams early and wrap up in next 2 weeks.
