It is relevant to mention here that nearly 3,000 to 4,000 unregistered private schools are working in the city, which shows that private schools perform as per their desires or objectives regardless of the rules and regulations set by the government. When Director Private Institutions Sindh, Mansoob Siddiqui was contacted, he said that the directorate was well informed about the issue, while the explanation letter had already been issued to the school management.
