Sindh govt urged to ensure availability of textbooks

HYDERABAD, Aug 12: District Coordination Officer Aftab Ahmed Khatri, on Saturday requested top authorities of the Sindh government to take notice of non-availability of textbooks in the district.

The DCO, after visiting government schools in various parts of the city, said that the students of class 6th to class 10th had not received textbooks because of negligence of the Sindh Text Book Board (STBB), Jamshoro. He recommended to the Sindh government to issue strict instructions to the STBB for early supply of textbooks in the market so that students' precious time could be saved.

The DCO visited the city schools following instructions by the district Nazim to timely implement the new district education plan 2007-08. The DCO, to his surprise, received complaints from students and teachers of various schools about non-availability of textbooks while the new academic session had already started. He said he was in a touch with the STBB and also writing to the provincial government on the matter.

Our Khairpur correspondent adds: Educational institutions opened on August 9 across the province but it is still unclear whether students would be able to receive their free textbooks as per the announcement of the Sindh government.

The Sindh Education Department has recently reiterated its commitment to provide students with free textbooks up to the 10th standard. Parents said that their children were not going to schools because books were not available even at bookstalls. They added textbooks were provided last year for students after four months had gone in the educational year. The news
