72 percent children out of school in Sindh

72pc kids out of school in Sindh
Karachi: Provincial Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq said on Wednesday that 72 percent children are out of school in 10 districts of Sindh, where 1000 closed schools are being opened under public-private partnership.

The service of private and missionary schools to the promotion of education could not be ruled out. "We are not against private schools but are acting against unregistered private schools that must get them registered. We will not allow anyone to make education a business," he said.

The Education Minister said that cheating is the killer of merit; therefore, stern action will be taken against cheating mafia and those supporting this dirty business.

The future of students getting success on the basis of their hard work is bright. The teachers and parents also deserve congratulations for providing better education training to them, he said.

The students getting success with hard work will be encouraged at every level as they would be provided all educational facilities, he said while addressing an award distribution ceremony for students who got distinctions in the Matriculation examinations of Hyderabad and Karachi Boards.

The provincial minister said that today's successful students are the precious asset of the future and those getting success with hard work will be a guarantee to the prosperity and stability of the country. The nation

School vacated for mausoleum expansion
Karachi: The City District Government Karachi (CDGK) Elementary Local Bodies Boys and Girls Primary School RS17, located next to the Alam Shah Bukari mausoleum on M.A Jinnah Road (Union Council-5, Saddar Town), has been closed down temporarily to give way to expansion work at the mausoleum and the mosque. Work at the mausoleum was launched during the school's summer break.

There were reports that the mausoleum's management was trying to encroach the land which belongs to the school. Sources said that people from the mausoleum visited the school's officials and asked for permission to demolish the wall which separated the two plots, so that they could store construction material within the school's premises. They, however, did not honour the agreement to reconstruct the wall before the end of summer vacations. Instead, the mausoleum management reportedly approached the Auqaf Department and shared their plans to expand the mausoleum, sources said.

The Auqaf minister and administrator have, however, given the surety that the project will be completed on time and schooling will resume on the campus adjacent to the mausoleum.

As per the agreement between the authorities concerned, the mausoleum's management will give a new building for the school within three to four months. The school will use the first floor of the new building, while the ground floor will be used by the mausoleum management for a Langer Khana (charity food centre) and as an extended praying area, sources said.

There were only five to six rooms in the old school building, while the institution will have eight to 10 rooms in the new structure. These rooms will also be bigger in size. There is a possibility that the school's management will apply for lower secondary or secondary school registration as well, sources said.

The school is sandwiched between the Eidgah Jama Masjid (Central Mosque) and the mausoleum, which lies adjacent to the tombs of the Nishtar Park blast victims. Students and teachers used the main gate of the central mosque to enter the school premises.

The contractor for the mausoleum project said that work will be completed before Eidul Azha and schooling in the new building will resume after Eid vacations.

However, the transfer of the school was not easy, authorities said. Earlier, students and teachers were directed to report at an Elementary School in Rat'an Talaab, Saddar, and only a few students along with four teachers and the school principal reported there. The parents of the students lodged a complaint, saying that Rat'an Talaab was far from their houses, and it was difficult for children to cross the roads during business hours.

In response, the Saddar Town education department shifted the school staff to the CDGK Elementary in Usmanabad (RS20/21), where they have stayed till date.
