The Punjab School Education Department (SED) on Tuesday announced launching a transgender school in the Barkat Market of the provincial capital.
The department has decided to turn the Government Girls High School, Barkat Market, into a transpersons school. It will be the first school for the marginalised community in the city.
The first separate public school for the transgender community was opened in Multan in July last year.
The District Education Authority (DAE) has started work on turning the girls school into a transgender persons’ school. The school staff will be appointed under the rationalisation policy or measures will be taken to recruit new staff.
