Private schools to move SC against ban on science students
Rawalpindi: The heads of private educational institutions on Tuesday decided to move the Supreme Court (SC) and launch a protest campaign against the ban imposed by eight educational boards on private science students for appearing in matriculation examination.

The future of thousands of science students is likely to be affected by the decision as the heads of private institutions have informed them that they could only appear as private candidate with arts subjects for the matriculation examination 2010, sources said here on Tuesday.

The Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Multan, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Sargodha, DG Khan and Bahawalpur have imposed a ban on private candidates on appearing in matriculation examination with science subjects. In a bid to save the future of the students, the heads of private educational institutions would not only move to the SC but they will launch a protest movement, the sources added.

They believed that it would be very difficult for the students to switch over from science subjects to the arts subjects at the eleventh hour. It may be mentioned here that each year, a large number of students get admissions in private educational institutions after failing to get admissions in government schools. APP
