Large-scale transfer of teachers begins
Karachi: Transfer and posting of a large number of teachers from one college to another has been started with the commencement of the new academic year.

As many as 27 teachers were transferred on Friday and, according to sources, another 50 are to be transferred in a couple of days.

Out of the 27 teachers whose have been transferred on Friday, 10 were posted until now at the PECHS Girls College, nine at the Govt Nazimabad College, seven at the DJ Govt Science College and one at the Adamjee Govt College.

The sources pointed out that transfer and posting on such a big scale at a time when the new academic session had just commenced was bound to create administrative problems for the managements of the colleges concerned. The staff at the colleges where the process of admission to the Class-XI is still under way are particularly disturbed by the move, according to the sources. Resentment prevailed among the teaching staff at some of these colleges when the transfer letters were handed over to the teachers concerned, they said.

The sources also pointed out that since the Sindhi language teacher of DJ Science College and Mathematics teacher of Ship-owners Govt College had been appointed only recently as principals of a newly-established colleges - the Govt Jamshed Road Girls College and the Manghopir College -, the colleges of their previous posting were now left with no teacher for the subjects. Similarly, one of the two Zoology teachers posted at the Adamjee Govt College has been transferred to some other college and the college administration was in a fix over how to teach a large number of students of Class XI and XII students with only one teacher at its disposal.

Commenting on the move, Prof Iftikhar Azmi of the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) said that transfer of teachers on such a big scale amid a shortage of no fewer than 2,000 teachers across the province was bound to disturb the peaceful atmosphere in educational institutions.

"Had the education secretary and director-general (colleges), Sindh, been sincere about offsetting the shortage, they would have posted the 650 teachers already recommended by the Sindh Public Service Commission and given appointment letters five months back," he argued, adding that the recent government moves were only aggravating the problem at the colleges which were already facing a dearth of teachers.

Prof Azmi accused the officials of taking certain steps to ruin the atmosphere of the colleges. In this regard, he also mentioned the recent move to hand over control of two colleges to an NGO.

Admission process
A number of students who have been offered admission to the Govt Boys College, Gulshan-i-Bihar, Govt Boys College, Qasba and Govt Boys College, Sector 11, Orangi Town under the Centralized Admission Policy (CAP) have been facing immense hardship in completing the admission formalities owing to the non-availability of the staff concerned.

The Sindh education department has established five colleges in the city which were inaugurated by provincial Minister for Education Pir Mazharul Haq recently. But the department has, so far, failed to appoint teachers and other staff in the required number. The staff available at the Govt Azam Basti Boys College and Govt Jamshed Girls College has been provided on a "detailment" basis in violation of a ban announced by the provincial government.

It has also been learnt that although the five newly colleges have Commerce and Arts faculties, they offered admission to first year classes only in the Commerce faculty. Dawn

'Benazir Bhutto Chair at University of Karachi soon'
Karachi: A Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Chair is likely to be established at the University of Karachi and Sindh University, Jamshoro, to carry out research on her struggle for democracy, the oppressed people of the world, and different aspects of her personality, according to Sindh minister for culture and tourism, Sassi Palejo.

Speaking at press conference at her office on Friday in connection with Tourism Day, she disclosed that the chief minister Sindh, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, had approved a summary in this regard.

She said that the late Benazir Bhutto was a leader of international calibre whose struggle for democracy and against oppressive rule would be remembered forever and her peaceful pursuit for the resolution of problems provides guidance for the people to follow.

The minister said that the culture department would launch a public-private partnership scheme to promote tourism in Sindh, which could generate jobs and money.

She regretted that Sindh lacked "eco-tourism". She announced that they would establish a National Park at Karoonjhar Hills while another national park named after Dolih Darya Khan would be set up at Makli, Thatta district.

She said a magazine would also be launched to provide information about tourist sites in the province.

College academic activities suspended against hand over 2 government colleges to an NGO
Karachi: The Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) suspended academic and non-academic activities at all city colleges as an action against the inappropriate attitude of the Sindh Education Department and their decision to hand over 2 government colleges to an NGO.

This took place at a meeting chaired by Prof. Athar Hussain on Friday, held to review the Sindh Chief Secretary's intervention in the privatization of Khatoon-e-Pakistan Government College and Raana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics. SPLA leaders appreciated the intervention and the fact that a committee was formed to investigate the matter, however, they demanded that the privatization decision should be nullified instead of being suspended.

Criticizing the Sindh education secretary and Sindh colleges director, SPLA leaders stated that these officials should resolve the problems faced by teachers instead of creating more problems.

The teachers have not been promoted for the last five years and this has really affected their performance. SPLA leaders asked the education department to give importance to teachers' promotions.

The female students and teachers of Raana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics will stage a demonstration against the privatization of the college. SPLA leaders revealed that protests will continue until the notification privatizing the colleges is cancelled. Daily Times

Demand for strict security at KU
Karachi: While expressing satisfaction over the vice chancellor's decision to debar a student accused of thrashing three university teachers on Aug 26, Karachi University Teachers' Society has warned the administration that its persistent failure to improve the law and order situation on the campus could force teachers to abandon their services.

The vice chancellor took the decision on the recommendation of the university's discipline committee.

Kuts, in a statement issued here, has appreciated the vice chancellor's move, but, at the same time maintained that the administration needs to take more tough measures to prevent recurrence of such violent incidents.

"The teachers are concerned over the increasing incidents of violence and hooliganism on the campus and warned the university administration that if effective security measures were not taken, teachers would not be able to continue their work," the statement said.

Referring to the many meetings held to sort out the campus security issues, Kuts has urged the vice chancellor to immediately order implementation of the proposals that had been discussed and agreed upon.

It has also called for unity among teachers, while urging students and their parents to demonstrate responsible behaviour and stay away from 'violent and criminal activities'.

Kuts' statement has come against the backdrop of a notification issued by the university on Friday. According to the notification, a student of International Relations Department, Mohammad Qasim, has been 'debarred' till the final decision of the discipline committee against which he had failed to appear despite many reminders.

The student was also found responsible for misleading the university authorities by providing a false residential address.

Due to the above reasons, the notification says: "Mr Qasim shall remain deprived of all benefits and privileges of a bona fide student of Karachi University except to the extent provided otherwise in the debarment order."

It may be mentioned here that three students were also killed in campus violence on the same day, August 26. Dawn
