Several complaints against private schools

Complaints paint grim picture of private schools

Karachi, Nov 05: Several complaints against private schools have depicted the real picture of irregularities, being faced by students and their parents in the metropolitan. These complaints were lodged before Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq, Sindh provincial minister for education and literacy, as he was listening the problems of the citizens at the Chief Minister House, following the directives of Sindh CM Qaim Ali Shah.
Majority of the complaints was against the private schools. The minister had issued directives to the authorities concerned to solve the civic problems on priority basis. One of the complaints was against a private school, namely Head Start Junior Shahrah-e-Faisal, filed by Syed Ghazanfar Hussain father of a student, Syed Irtiza Hussain, of Head Start Junior. According to the complaint, the said school has seized the security deposit worth Rs 10,000 at the departure of the said student.

The complainant had been informed by the administration of the school that his security deposit had been charged for the period to which neither his child had attained the classes nor it was informed to complainant in advance.

Ghazanfar, in the application, urged the education minister to consider his grievance and demanded that such schools and all the institutions should be dealt with severe punishment according to the law and for the sake of the safe guarding many parents who are been deprived and black-mailed. Haq directed the authorities concerned to get the complainant back his money from the said school as no school has a right to have any amount on account of security deposit, as per the rules. On the other hand it is a common trend at the private schools to do as per their desire or objectives regardless of the rules and regulations.

Nearly 3,000 to 3,500 private schools in Karachi are registered with the Sindh Education Department. Conversely, 3,000 to 4,000 unregistered private schools are working in the City. Despite the presence of the regulation and control authority of private schools, numerous private schools have carried on bothering students and their parents by charging excessive and unjustified fee.

Such private schools are charged of giving meagre salaries to their employees including teachers. Sindh Education Department is direly required to start effective campaign against such schools and form inspection teams to check admission policy, syllabus, fee and teachers' salary structure during their visit to private schools.

Students clash at SM Law College. 9 injured in clash between student bodies
Karachi: At least nine people were injured in a clash between the members of All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organisation (APMSO) and Islami Jamiat Taliba (IJT) at SM Law College on Tuesday, within the jurisdiction of Preedy Police Station.

Tension gripped the college as activists of both organisations attacked each other with batons and rods and even resorted to aerial firing.

According to details, tension has existed between both organisations for a long time now but the clash that took place on Tuesday was over the entry of activists from outside the college during student week.

IJT claimed that APMSO activists deliberately started the clash to sabotage a book fair organised by IJT, scheduled to start on Wednesday.

They further alleged that as per a pre-planned agenda, the APMSO workers came with sticks and rods to attack IJT activists, as a result of which four activists sustained injuries.

On the contrary, APMSO alleged that the workers of IJT have regularly been inviting party activists to terrorise other students of the college, adding that the IJT activists and their outsiders suddenly beat up two workers of APMSO and tried to take them out of the college on which other workers and supporters came to negotiate with the IJT workers but they started fighting and five of the APMSO workers sustained injuries and were taken to a hospital.

Eyewitnesses said that heavy contingents of police surrounded the college building for more than an hour but could not access the building and they tried to negotiate with both the parties.

DSP Salman Hussain said that the main reason behind the clash was the arrival of outsiders into the college premises. He added that both parties have been blaming each other for the clash however a settlement was made between the organisations but the college was evacuated. The DSP further said that the activists used weapons and resorted to aerial firing but none of the injured sustained bullet wounds. No arrest was made and no FIR was registered till this report was filed.

Summary to regularise 700 lecturers sent to CM
Karachi: The Sindh Education Department has prepared a summary for Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, to regularise 700 lecturers, who were appointed four years back but their services had not been regularised yet, said department officials.

They said that it is expected that the CM will sign the summary in the next few days and the lecturers will be given permanent status by mid-November.

It may be mentioned here that the Sindh Education Department had refused to pay heed to the federal government directive to make the appointments through the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC), recruiting the700 lecturers, during the previous regime.

A private educational institution conducted the test in mid-December 2003 and handed the results to the education department within ten days. According to the rules, only those lecturers appointed through the SPSC are given permanent status. Otherwise, the recruitment is made on an ad-hoc basis.

Representatives of the ad-hoc lecturers, Khan Mohammad Zangejo, Dilshad, Zulfiqar and others, observed that their services should be regularised within two years after working as ad-hoc lecturers.

Expressing their joy over getting a permanent status, they said that they had completed three years in service but they still await confirmation. They have also not been receiving their salaries and their families are starving, they maintained.

Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association spokesman Prof Iftikhar Muhammad Azami said that it was a good move to regularise the ad-hoc teachers. He added that however this could not be done through a summary as only the provincial assembly has the power to regularise the lecturers and said that the government should adopt a resolution in the Sindh Assembly to make these lecturers permanent.

Commenting on appointment through private institutions, Azami said that although it was an unwise decision, the lecturers should not be sacked and future appointments should be made through the SPSC to avoid another dilemma like this one, he suggested. Daily Times
