Tuition centres, academies compromising on security
Lahore: Academies and tuition centres have not taken the prescribed security
measures to secure their premises, evading the government and putting the lives
of students at risk, it has been learnt.
Due to a lack of government
regulation in this sector, the city has seen mushrooming of tuition centres in
recent years. Now, there is hardly a locality, posh or otherwise, without an
academy or tuition centre, with most such establishments operating in
It has been observed that despite steep tuition fees,
a large number of these academies do not implement the government-prescribed
security measures on their premises. Also, most of these academies are
co-educational institutions, and hence, more likely targets of a possible
terrorist attack. A student studying for the CSS
interview at an academy in Johar Town, said he had studied for four years and
had cleared the written exam on his second attempt.
"After putting in so much
time and money, I cannot just leave it in the middle due to the security
situation. The administration of the academy should ensure the safety of
students at their premises, especially when they receive Rs 20,000 per month
from every student," he added. Another student said that since all exams would
be conducted as per schedule, they could not afford to leave tuition centres
because of the law and order situation.
Many parents have also expressed
their concern about their children's security, but say there is no other option,
short of home schooling them. "I cannot let my children grow up illiterate, it
is for the professors running these academies to take security measures, since
we (parents) are already paying them a lot," one parent said. "There are
innumerable academies and tuition centres in Lahore and it is impossible for the
government to deploy security personnel at their premises. Academy owners should
invest in security because they are running commercial enterprises and making a
lot of money," Mazhar Shahzad, the father of an O-Levels student,
However, most academy owners refused to comment, saying the
security situation was bad across the board. "If terrorists can attack the
General Headquarters (GHQ), they can attack anywhere and there is no use of
taking security measures," the owner of an academy near Barkat Market
Main Market Station House Officer (SHO) Hammad Khan said police
had been given a list of standard operating procedures (SOPs) to be followed in
ensuring the security of schools. However, he said he had received no specific
instructions to ensure security for private academies, adding that no academy
owner had approached him for security so far. However, experts say that SOPs for
schools and colleges should also apply to private academies, because most
tuition centres are situated in residential areas. Daily times

Services Institute of Medical Sciences faculty shortage
Lahore: The Services Institute of Medical Sciences (Sims), Lahore, is
facing a shortage of senior faculty in various departments which is badly
affecting the quality of teaching and training as well as treatment of patients
in the Services Hospital.
As many as six professors, eight associate
professors and seven assistant professors are not available in several key
departments, and the situation shows the quality of education and training being
imparted on young doctors as well as the treatment given to patients in the
According to details, six seats of professors are lying vacant
in departments of Biochemistry, Forensic Medicine, Pathology, Psychiatry,
General Medicine and Radiology. Similarly, there is a shortage of eight
associate professors, including two vacant seats in the Department of General
Surgery and one seat each lying vacant in the departments of Anaesthesia,
Medicine, Psychiatry, Plastic Surgery, Paeds Surgery and the ENT. Besides, seven
seats of assistant professors are also lying vacant, namely four seats in
Community Medicine, two in Anatomy and one in Forensic Medicine.
Young Doctors' Association (YDA) on Sunday lambasted the SIMS administration for
the delay in filling the vacant posts of senior medical teachers in the key
departments, which was causing loss of academic activities of medical students
and practical training of young doctors besides badly affecting the standard of
diagnostic and treatment services to patients in the Services Hospital.
"The SIMS must immediately fill the vacant posts of professors,
associate professors and assistant professors in its various departments so as
to ensure quality education and training to students and doctors as well as
treatment to patients," said Dr Salman Kazmi, secretary general of the
YDA. Meanwhile the Young Doctors' Association said that as many as 400 young doctors,
currently engaged in two-year MCPS programme under the College of Physicians and
Surgeons Pakistan (CPSP), are working unpaid in all teaching hospitals in the
According to a press release here on Sunday, the YDA
office-bearers said that three months back, the Punjab government had promised
that 500 seats would be created to give pay to the doctors who were working in
hospitals without pay.
However, they said, the summary of the said seats
was still in the Punjab Finance Department. They said 400 young doctors demanded
the Punjab government to give them pay.

Need to modernise education system
Lahore: Rote learning is undoubtedly the biggest obstacle to the creation
of intellectual, creative and critical learning environment in educational
institutions especially schools.
Experts have stressed the need for a
teaching method promoting inquiry-based learning instead of rote learning. It is
a common practice that students are required to memorise a particular subject
matter instead of critically analyzing it.
The teaching method in use by
most schools especially public sector schools is believed to be highly rigid in
nature discouraging children from thinking critically and even snatching the
spirit of thinking independently.
Nonetheless there are schools
especially in private sector where rote learning is strongly discouraged and
emphasis is laid on creative and critical learning. A number of schools have
also gone for project-based learning with an aim to make children understand how
to apply knowledge in real world situations.
Some educational experts and
teachers are quite critical of the Punjab Chief Minister's Speech and Essay
Writing Competitions and even term it "a big show for promotion of rote
learning". They argue that rote learning is being promoted by making students
write and speak on pre-selected topics and that winning the competition would
merely be an exercise in memorising written material. "This hampers the process
of creative and critical thinking," said a senior professor teaching at a
"It is unfortunate to see students come on the dais and
vomit what they have memorised," he added. He said brainstorming sessions should
have been organised to involve students in creative and critical think process
and seek their points of view on different topics instead of organising such
competitions. This correspondent had the opportunity to visit various schools in
connection with these competitions last year and noticed students delivering
This year the CM Speech and Essay Writing Competition
2009 started on November 11. Urdu essay writing competition at primary level was
on the topic of "Safai Nisf Imaan Hai", middle level Urdu essay writing
competition on the topic of "Mehnat Mein Azmat Hai" and middle level English
essay writing competition on the topic of "Parents are the Best Teachers of a
Urdu speech competition at primary level was on "Subah Ki Sair"
and middle level Urdu speech competition on "Amal Se Zindagi Banti Hey Janat Bhi
Jahanam Bhi". Middle level English speech competition was on "Students'
A schoolteacher seeking anonymity revealed that most of the
time, speeches and essays were prepared by teachers or parents. "Students have
to learn these by heart only," he said. "Can this help a student sharpen his/her
critical and creative abilities," the teacher remarked.
Those who support
the ongoing competitions argue that such events do help a lot in grooming
leadership qualities among children besides creating among them much-needed self
confidence. They argue that such competitions equip young students with skills
that help them express themselves clearly.
The Punjab University's
Centre of Clinical Psychology (CCP) Director, Dr Ayesha Sitwat, and students
attended the 12th Asia-Pacific Regional Conference of Alzheimer's Disease held
the other day. A press statement issued on Sunday stated Dr Saima Dawood and
Mujeeba Ashraf also presented their papers in the conference.
