Hyderabad schools to remain shut by 27: Administrator
Hyderabad: All the educational institutions in Hyderabad District will remain closed by August 27 in anticipation of flood threat, said administrator Hyderabad.

According to district administration sources, on account of constant surge in flow of water at Kotri Barrage for last some days, the fears of anticipated floods in urbane areas abutting district including Qasimabad, Hussainabad, and some units of Latifabad have grown dramatically.

Super flood of over 9,00,000 cusecs of water is passing through Kotri Barrage what is being seen as more than its capacity which is below 8,75,000 cusecs, endangering urban localities in Hyderabad at risk of inundation.

Meanwhile, many a Kutcha areas in Hyderabad District have already been washed away by floodwaters, stranding and displaying hundreds of villagers.

Moreover, high deluge in Indus River has kept mounting enormous pressure against two sides of safety embankments in River Indus built along Hyderabad, which may be eroded at any time, sources feared.

Teacher forces DO Education to sign posting order
Karachi: District Officer (DO) Education, Elementary (Male), City District Government Karachi (CDGK), Muhammad Siddiqui Baloch has complained to the executive district officer (education) that two teachers misbehaved and used abusive language against him at his office.

According to Baloch, Muhammad Saleem Memon, a Sindhi language teacher, was working on detailment basis at Shamsi Islamic Government Boys and Low Secondary School (GBLSS) in Gulshan-e-Iqbal Town. He visited Baloch's office and insisted that he signs an application so that he could remain posted at Shamsi Islamic GBLSS.

"He is not interested in going back to his previous office and wants to retain his current position. I am responsible for primary and lower primary schools. I told Memon that he belongs to the secondary section and hence he should visit the concerned office in this regard," Baloch said.

However, Memon pressurised Baloch to sign the application despite the fact that he belongs to another section and is not entitled to signing such documents.

Memon was long working on detailment but after the cancellation of all detailments, he was relieved from his duties by the assistant district officer, Gulshan-e-Iqbal Town.

Memon was directed to report back to his parent place of posting but he did not act according to the orders of the office(s). Last week, Memon along with a person named, Siddiq-ur-Rehman, an Arabic language teacher of Khatri Islamia, GBLSS, visited the office of DO Elementary (Male), sources said.

"Both Memon and Rehman are the office-bearers of a teachers union called Shah Latif Teachers. At Baloch's office, they once again tabled the application and asked him to sign it.

Baloch again advised Memon to join his former school or meet the authorities concerned to get a No Objection Certificate as he (Baloch) was not the right person in this case," sources said.

"Due to the cancellation of detailments, the staff was asked to report at their former offices. However, both teachers refused to pay any attention towards the instructions and started shouting and abusing the DO Elementary (Male) and his senior authorities. The teachers claimed that they would involve some high-ups of the education department and press into the matter," the sources added.

Baloch also confirmed the incident and said that Memon and Rehman used abusive words in front of his staff and added that the two again entered into his office and brought a new application which was marked by the executive district pfficer (EDO), Education.

According to sources, it has not been confirmed whether the signature on the application is genuine or not. The sources further added that Baloch made a written complaint at the office of the EDO Education.

In his letter, Baloch has said that it would be difficult for the office to implement the orders of the Education Department if people keep abusing them.

He further requested the EDO Education to suspend both Memon and Rehman on the account of misbehaving with the seniors, they added.

Meanwhile, despite repeated attempts by this reporter, Rehman and Memon were not available for comments.

Plan devised to restore flood-hit education system
Karachi: The Sindh government has decided to make arrangements for imparting education to the children living in the relief camps as well as those whose schools have been turned into relief camps.

For this purpose, some space at the relief camps would be reserved where children would get education up to the primary level.

Evening shifts would run in the institutes of the Sindh Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (STEVTA) and also on the premises of some private educational institutes.

The government's efforts in this connection would be supplemented by the donor agencies and some NGOs who would establish their own "tent schools", sources in the Sindh government said on Tuesday.

These decisions were taken at a meeting held in Sukkur recently and chaired by the secretary of Education and Literacy Department and attended by the representatives of Unicef, the National Commission for Human Development (NCHD), the Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) and some senior officials.

The participants at the meeting exchanged views on how to facilitate the education of flood-hit children as well as of those whose schools had been turned into relief camps.

They decided unanimously that those children who

had been affected by the floods directly or indirectly would not be left to suffer academically.

It was also decided at the meeting that adult IDPs would also be provided "literacy education" by the directorate of non-formal education in collaboration with the NCHD and the SEF.

The directorate had been told to provide a contingency plan for all the affected districts to the education department for this purpose.

The managing director of Sindh Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (STEVETA) would be requested by the Education Department to provide an institution to the EDOs Education for running the schools there for the flood affected children in the evening shift.

Unicef would be requested by the department to provide some nutritional items like milk and biscuits to the flood-hit children at the camp schools to be established by them. The news
