Chitralis demand for separate education board
Chitralis seek separate education board
Chitral, Sept 03: The academic circles have demanded separate board of
intermediate and secondary education (BISE) for the district.
On Wednesday, they said that Chitral
qualified to have a separate education board due to its peculiar
geographical position and increasing number of candidates.
Residents said that the district remained cut off from rest of the
country for five months a year in winter when admission forms were
submitted to the BISE Peshawar. They said that both regular and private
students faced tremendous hardships and many students missed their
enrolment when flights, the only source of communication in winter,
Presently, they said, Chitral was
affiliated with the BISE Peshawar which was the largest board in the
NWFP and establishment of a new board would lessen its working load
apart from providing relief to the people of Chitral.
retired college principal said that the number of students in Chitral
had multiplied over the years. Currently the strength of candidates in
matriculation examination had reached 15,000 in the district.
He said that it was not possible to completely weed out corruption and
malpractices in examinations without the establishment of the BISE in
Chitral. The academician contended that Chitral was sparsely populated
district encompassing an area of 14,850 square kilometres. Only a
Chitral-based authority could fairly conduct examinations and solve
Locals said that a separate board would be
an authority to regulate schools and colleges in the private sector.
They sought upgradation of education standards at primary, secondary
and intermediate levels in Chitral.
They said that enrolment
rate in primary schools throughout the district stood at about 100 per
cent which meant rapidly increasing number of candidates for secondary
and higher secondary examinations. Local chapter of the Sarhad College
Teachers Association has already passed a unanimous resolution for the
establishment of a separate board in Chitral.
"The demand of Chitrali academic circles is fair and reasonable.It is also the voice of Chitrali students and its inhabitants.It must be approved on the grounds given above. "

Regularisation of teachers opposed
Peshawar: All CT Teachers Association NWFP Wednesday staged a protest
demonstration against the government decision of regularising all
contract teachers and demanded that the government should first promote
the in-service teachers. The teachers gathered outside the press club
and were chanting slogans in favour of their demands. They said that
the recent decision of government to regularise the contract and
fixed-pay employees would affect the experienced in-service teachers.
They said that many teachers were waiting for their promotions since
long and government should immediately announce their promotions. The
protesters threatened that that if their demands were not met, they
would start province-wide agitation.
"The regularization of contract employees is totally against the merit. The PSC should be abolished now to save the govt. money and time. The fresh candidates will now wait for 5 years for a lecturer job. The decision has been made by vacant minded persions bcz a sound person can not do so. It will be worst decision in the history of NWFP. "
