Coaching centre set up in govt school at Landhi

KARACHI, Feb 28(Dawn): Landhi Town has set a strange precedent of allowing a public sector school to be used for a commercial venture.

A coaching centre is offering computer science and English language classes.

An official in the CDGK education department when asked about allowing the school to be used by a coaching centre said he had no knowledge about the matter or who gave permission for the venture.

They said the law did not allow commercial usage of a public school's premises or its property by an individual or commercial organisation.

The Landhi town administration inaugurated a coaching centre recently on the premises of N.A. Abbasi Govt. Boys Secondary School, Landhi near Hanafia Alamgir Jama Masjid. A pamphlet distributed in the area offers coaching class for students from matric to graduation including English language of basic and advance and computer classes basic and advance courses.

The facilities offered are computer labs, practical labs, and other facilities available on the school premises. The pamphlet contains the official emblem which has confused some students and their parents who presume that it is a government's project.

According to details gathered by DAWN, the Landhi administration sent a letter to the EDO Education seeking permission to use the schoool's premises to impart computer and English language education to poor students free of cost. The permission was granted.

A pamphlet was published that says there is a Rs100 fee. The coaching centre operates from 3pm to 8pm.

Recently, more than 1,000 pupils studying in a school in Firdous Colony, were dislodged in a hurry and the building handed over to an individual. This individual then demolished the building.
