Lack of education, skill hinders workers
Islamabad: South Asia has the largest working population in the world but the region's education system - the core of every development effort - is impractical and more theoretical, thus lagging far behind in meeting critical challenges.

These views were expressed by speakers at a two-day workshop on 'Strengthening the Education System in Saarc Region to Integrate with the Global Education System', organised here Monday by South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation's (Saarc) Human Resource Development Centre (SHRDC).

The purpose of the workshop is to promote knowledge and multiple skills in the Saarc region that comprises a wide range of work related knowledge, and technical and behavioural skills.

Bala Bahadur Kunwar, Ambassador of Nepal to Pakistan, in his address said in this competitive environment, only those nations could produce goods in an effective manner, compete and progress well whose labour force is equipped with demand driven knowledge and skills. He said it is necessary that the education system caters to the needs of business and society, and empowers learners to thrive in the 21st century.

"Despite geographic proximity and cultural affinity, the South Asian countries need to look for ways and means to integrate their educational institutions with the global education system," the ambassador said.

He said low quality skills and poor technological base is increasingly affecting the capacities of the South Asian countries to be competitive in the global market, achieve sustainable growth, move from primary goods to high value added ones, and attract foreign private investment.

Bala Bahadur Kunwar hoped the workshop would help understand issues regarding education policies, education financing and learning best practices of the world in a comprehensive manner.

Director SHRDC Dr Muhammad Aslam Khan said the education system must be technology driven, supported by networks and provide a level playing field for all. "The education system must work beyond boundaries to involve all groups that influence learning including partners, business enterprises, educational institutions and decision makers at all levels," he said.

Shifting of Razmak Cadet College demanded
Peshawar: President Parents Association Cadet College Razmak Prof, Iqbal Ahmad has held an appeal to Governor NWFP to shift the college to a suitable location so as to start regular classes without any further delay. In an emergency meeting of the association here on Monday, Iqbal Ahmad said that Cadet College Razmak was close since June 1st, 2009 since the students were abducted by the militants and the chances for the opening of the college were bleak due to the security situation and the on-going military operation in Razmak and the adjoining areas.

The meeting passed a unanimous resolution demanding of the government to take emergent steps for shifting of the venue of the college so as to start regular classes as the future of hundreds of students was at stake due to the prevailing uncertainty. The association suggested that the college could be temporarily shifted to Durrani College or the newly constructed Judicial Complex before a permanent building for the college could be obtained. The temporary arrangement would help safe the precious time of the students, who could not afford any more delay in initiation of their studies, they argued.

Schools open to thin attendance
Islamabad: Schools had a thin attendance on Monday on the first day after summer vacations end. Some students have left capital to visit their relatives and are yet to come back to resume their studies. Persistent summer heat kept others away from schools. "Today class attendance is thin so combined classes have been arranged to keep students busy," Shagufta Shahid, a teacher in Islamabad Model College for Boys (IMCB), F-8/4 said.

The students normally joined schools two to three days after the end of vacations, she said. Islamabad College for Girls (ICG), F-6/2 Principal Shaista Peerzada said only a few students came to college. The students were adapting to opening of the college, she said. "It is good that the college has opened now and there will be full attendance in the coming week," she said. Classes for Intermediate Part I and graduation have not started, which is also a reason for thin attendance. Summer vacations started on June 8 in all federal educational institutes. Last year, vacations ended in the second week of August but this year the schedule has been revised. Teachers hope that the students would take part in Independence Day celebration with full zeal.
