Education ministry forms inspection committee for private schools
Karachi: The provincial education and literacy department has constituted a 16-member inspection
committee to check fees structure at the private schools and ensure that the
Sindhi Language is being taught.
According to an official notification
issued by the department, the committee, headed by the advisor to the Sindh
chief minister, Rashid Rabbani, will submit their recommendations on the fees
structure in private schools within 30 days.
The committee will inspect
private schools and check their fees structure, particularly because of the high
increase in fees witnessed recently. The committee will also ensure that the
Sindhi Language is being taught as per the law at private institutions and will
submit a report for each school they visit.
The department has warned
that those members who do not participate in these consecutive visits risk being
The members of the committee are the advisor to the Sindh chief
minister, Muhammad Ismail Dahiri, Special Assistant to the CM Waqar Mehdi, MPAs
Dr Salim Hingoro, Humera Alwani, Farzana Hanif Baloch, and others, Dr Mirza
Ikhtiar Baig, Saeed Ghani, Pir Abdul Rasheed, Shaukat Ali Shah, Khalil Qureshi,
Suhail Ansari, Lal Bux Bhutto, Najmi Alam and Salman Abdullah Murad. The
director of a private institution, Mansoob Hussain Siddiqui, will act as
secretary of the committee.
Private Schools Management Association (PSMA)
Chairman Sharafuz Zaman said that the Private Institutions
Regularization Act of 2001, amended in 2003 and 2005 discusses fees structure.
It allows the constitution of a six-member inspection committee, for which 2
members will be from the private schools' association, 2 from the directorate of
private institutions and 2 from civil society. It is beyond any reasoning why
political persons have been taken into the committee, as they do not have any
role to play. As far as fees are concerned, every private school is legally
bound to approach Directorate of private Institutions for final
The management of private schools will not stop any member of
the committee from entering their premises but it should be made clear that if
any hurdle is created, then all private schools will be shut down, warned
The ministry of education should have constituted a committee for
public schools to see why students are not provided free books and essential
facilities such as potable water, lavatory facility and playground, commented
The PSMA is concerned about the formation of a private schools
inspection committee because its legal role is not defined in the Private
Institutions Regularization Act of 2001. Private schools have contributed much
to the promotion of education, added Zaman.
Neither can the committee
issue directives to private schools as per the law nor will private schools
approach the committee seeking approval for an increase in fees because this
matter is legally fixed by private schools and the directorate of private
institutions, argued Zaman. Daily Times

Most of private schools without playgrounds
Lahore: It is believed that sports play an important role in the overall
character building and personality development of children but it is a bitter
reality that the majority of private and public schools lack playgrounds, which
affects students' physical and mental fitness.
The condition of public
schools is somewhat better than private schools as their campuses are built on a
vast piece of land unlike private schools operating in small buildings or even
houses. There are some private schools that offer playgrounds and sports which
public schools cannot afford.
Sadly, indoor games are uncommon in schools
owing to which students seldom find opportunities to spare time for
By and large, there is a lack of playgrounds in the provincial
metropolis which compels children to play in streets or on roads. The paucity of
play areas and fewer sports opportunities encourage children to rely on computer
games. The tendency to play computer games among children has been on the rise
over the years.
Academic circles believe that sports and games play a
significant role in character building. They say that students learn the
significance of teamwork, commitment to a job, sense of responsibility and a
spirit of tolerance and forbearance by taking part in sports.
that one of the major reasons for students' inclination to playing computer
games and internet surfing was a lack of sports facilities available to them.
They are also very critical of private schools, saying the commercialisation of
education had turned it from a divine mission into a business.
concerned citizen, said it was unfortunate that the majority of private schools
did not care about students' basic needs but charged handsome fees. He said
private schools operated in one or two-room buildings, adding offering
playgrounds to students was a huge challenge for such schools. He said in the
absence of any sports-related activities, students were compelled to find
Nasir, a government schoolteacher, said majority of
government schools were housed in big buildings and had playgrounds for students
unlike private schools. "The infrastructure of government schools, however, is
going to waste as they do not organise sports activities on a regular basis," he
said. He said the condition of education institutions for girls was even worse
as they did not at all encourage students to participate in sports.
Another teacher said that at a time when most of public schools in the
province were without basic facilities, the issue of sports was not important.
"For me the provision of missing facilities such as electricity, toilets and
boundary walls is more important than providing students with playgrounds," he
Commenting on the issue, Schools Education Department Secretary
Nadeem Ashraf said sports at school had been pushed into the background over the
years. He said the government was devising a strategy to promote sports at
schools. The News
