complaints received at the directorate reveal that numerous parents were bearing
extra expenditure due to this unjustified shifting.

children are studying in two branches of PECHS in different classes, told The

shifted his two children campus to PAF Chapter, hence he was suffering extra
financial burden of more than five thousand every month. However, school
management took this decision without any announcement, he added.

school sector reveals that the majority of private schools and schools
organisations are working only with an objective of minting money on account of

unregistered private schools are working in the city, which shows that private
schools perform as per their desires or objectives regardless of the rules and
regulations set by the government. When Director Private Institutions Sindh,
Mansoob Siddiqui was contacted, he said that the directorate was well informed
about the issue, while the explanation letter had already been issued to the

branches; the government will help parents to solve the problem, he stated and
added that the said school management had already challenged to the government
rules in the court. It is pertinent to mention here that the influential and
financially strong owners of private schools have several times exposed the
