Social Science Teachers Teach English in Schools?
There is a lack of the teachers who are specialised in teaching English and therefore, Punjab has a policy of employing the Social Science teachers in order to teach students English subject which is also sometimes against the wish of the teachers.
This has resulted in a bad performance of the students in both the subjects. This year, as many as 63,000 students have failed in the Social Studies subject which is the second highest number followed by the 89,000 students failing in the PSEB Class 10 English Board Exam 2018 in Punjab.
