Private schools rarely undergo mandatory inspection
Karachi: Several private schools continue to fleece students and
parents by charging excessive fee and pay meagre salaries to teachers and yet go
unchecked as the mechanism provided under the rules for the inspection of
schools is not properly followed.
Though the Sindh Private Educational
Institutions (Regulation and Control) Rules-2005 envisages constitution of an
inspection committee comprising at least three members – one each from the
provincial education department, education group of offices of district
government and civil society – it is not being implemented in the letter and
spirit for the reasons best known to the registration authorities.
are three registration authorities for private educational institutions,
according to a notification issued by Sindh Education department on April 17,
The Executive District Officer (Education) is the registration
authority for elementary schools and institutions from Montessori up to Class
VIII in his respective district.
The director of private schools
education and literacy department, Sindh, is the registration authority for the
secondary schools as well as O and A level schools, excluding Grammar School and
Jesus & Mary.
The education secretary is the registration authority
for higher secondary schools/colleges/degree-awarding institutions having
academic linkage/foreign collaborations/affiliation with any other institutions
of higher learning and teachers training, Grammar School, Jesus and Mary School
of 'O' and 'A' levels.
It is mandatory upon the registration authority to
constitute inspection committees for carrying out detailed inspection of
educational institutions at the time of their registration or renewal of the
After inspection, the committees are required
to recommend a fee structure of the respective school to the registration
authority for approval.
Such an obligatory requirement is seldom carried
out or remains on paper only as in most cases such formalities are fulfilled by
the officials of the registration authority themselves by using their
Insiders say that initially a registration
certificate is granted to a private school for a period of three years, but
neither the school nor the registration authority makes any effort to ensure
that the certificate is renewed after three years.
Most violations of the
Sindh Private Educational Institutions (Regulation and Control) Rules-2005 are
related to the fee structure and salaries of staff, the sources point
Under the rules, they say, the schools are allowed to charge only a
tuition fee and that too after seeking approval from the registration authority
concerned. But many private schools are charging fee in other heads as well,
most common being the 'annual charges', voluntary donations and charges for
Private schools can legally increase a tuition
fee up to five per cent of the previous fee schedule while in numerous cases the
annual fee increase ranges between 20 and 50 per cent and yet the authorities do
not take such schools to task.
Under the rules, the minimum salary and
allowances of a full-time teacher with 12 months of continuous service should
not be less than four times the monthly fee of a single student in the highest
class charged by the institution.
However, the sources say, it is a
common practice that private schools hire teachers on a six-month contract basis
to save more by depriving teachers of their two-month salaries of the vacation
Quoting the Federal Bureau of Statistics' Census Report of 2005
(published in 2006) whereby the number of registered privately-run educational
institutions in Sindh is stated as 11,865, sources in the education department
disclose that an equal number of private educational institutions are
functioning without registration.
They attribute the mushroom growth of
unregistered schools to a lack of proper mechanism for their inspection at the
directorate of private schools and EDOs (Education).
