Bains said that the government is trying to bring revolutionary changes in the education sector, in which along with the beautification of the school buildings, plans have also been made to improve the quality of education. On the other hand, Amandeep Sharma, the state president of the Chief Teachers Association of Punjab, said that teachers have been waiting for the promotion of master cadre from primary for a long time. However, the department is repeatedly saying that promotions should be done soon, but the issue is standing from where it started.
