Universal Primary Education: Pindi schools enroll 17,000 children
Rawalpindi: The government schools of Rawalpindi district enrolled 17,000 school-age children between August 14 and 31 under Universal Primary Education (UPE) programme.

Of these children aged below nine, 8,400 were boys and 8,600 girls, District Officer (Monitoring) Muhammad Awais said on Wednesday.

Awais said teachers deployed in rural area schools put names of the newborn babies into a register maintained at union councils under the UPE programme.

He said government had launched the programme in 1987 with the help of UNICEF. He said National Commission for Human Development (NCHD) and NGOs had been mobilising parents to send their children to schools.

Awais said the Education Department had been trying to enroll all children below nine in the province in line with Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif's instructions.

He said it's for the first time that the department had engaged teachers for enrollment of school-age children. He said the teachers' involvement had resulted in massive enrollment of children under the UPE programme.

Punjab Teachers' Association, Rawalpindi, President Saghir Alam said registering students in schools was as important as reducing high dropout rate in the district.

He appreciated the provincial government for providing poor students with free education, free books, free stationery etc.

He said in some backward areas, people were given Rs 200 per head for sending their daughters to schools.

He said these initiatives had increased school enrollment in the province in general and in Rawalpindi district in particular. "These steps will greatly improve literacy rate in the district," he said.

Bilal Abbasi, a social worker, said it was seen that many children left schools due to parents' disinterest in their studies.

He said in most of the cases, poor people preferred work to education for their children.

He said frequent migration was another reason of children not receiving formal education.

Abbasi said children stayed away from schools when their teachers remained absent from schools. He said absentee teachers deserved stern punishment.

Punjab Education Secretary (Schools) Nadeem Ashraf expressed concern that 38 per cent people in the Punjab didn't send children to schools every year. He said teachers could discourage dropout rate of 30 percent among schoolchildren by performing their duty diligently.

He said the education budget for 2008-09 had Rs 10 billion extra funds for the welfare of teachers and students.

EDO (Education) Chaudhry Muhammad Yousaf said the department had been trying hard to increase enrollment in Rawalpindi schools. He said things at schools would considerably improve by the end of next month. Daily Times
