Non-availability of textbooks irks capital's students
Islamabad: Students of educational institutions run by the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) are facing problems due to non-availability of textbooks as new academic session started two weeks ago.

They have received books of four subjects so far. Parents feared that their children would not be able to "cover the syllabus in time" if textbooks were not provided to them.

Shabbir Ahmed, a father of two children who are studying at Islamabad Model College for Girls (IMCG) G-10/2, said his children had been provided only four books so far.

It was the responsibility of the FDE to deliver the textbooks to the students before beginning of their classes, he said.

A 10th grade student at the Islamabad Model College for Boys, G-10/4, said, "I have only received books of three subjects till now and teachers are saying that rest of the books will be provided in few days."

"Our teachers keep us engaged in the classroom in different activities during those periods of which we do not have the textbooks," he added.

A father said: "My children studying in Model College have received only one textbook of mathematics while the teachers are saying that they have not received other books from the directorate and it will be difficult for the children to prepare for first term exams."

Model Colleges Director Tariq Masood said that the National Book Foundation was the book publishing authority and it had delivered 98 percent textbooks to the directorate.

The FDE was continuing the process of dispatching the textbooks to all the model schools and colleges and hopefully the textbooks would be handed over to the students until the last week of April, he said. The directorate provides free textbooks from class I to class X, every year, to facilitate the students. app
