Qaim constitutes committee to solve contract employees' issues
Karachi, Feb 23: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has announced formation of a committee to look into issues pertaining to the employees appointed on contract basis in the Education Department.

He was addressing the Sindh Assembly session on Monday on a point of order raised by MPA Nusrat Saher Abbasi belonging to the Opposition benches.

The Sindh CM clarified that there was no plan to dismiss the employees appointed on ad hoc basis and that there was at the same time no programme to immediately give permanent jobs to the 0.1 million employees appointed on contract.

He said that the committee will submit its report within a week and added that the provincial government has to look into its financial repercussions.

Shah said that the province was already facing a financial crisis due to the floods last year and added that development funds have also been curtailed by 3 percent in this context.

"It is our effort to give employment to those on contract while abiding all the laws," he said while referring to various orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

The committee, formed in this connection, will comprise Education Minister Pir Mazhar-ul- Haq, Finance Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and MQM representatives including Syed Sardar Ahmed. app

"To, The Minister of Education, Government of Sindh Karachi. Subject:JUNIOR SCHOOL TEACHERS' 12 MONTHS PENDING SALARY R/Sir, It is a matter of great grief to say that we, teachers who are considered to be the torch bearers, nation builders and most reverend persons of the society are in great trouble and also the victim of injustice, carelessness and ignorance and there is no body ready to listen and console us. Basically, we poor teachers belong to District Jacobabad and have been facing very crucial problem of not having our salary since our appointment dated I.e. February 2010 to till date. We have been appointed on purely merit basis through the test which was conducted by University of Sindh. From the very beginning, we have been kept time by time in pseudo contentment continuously for issuing of our salaries but yet not paid and kept us in pending by giving us lame excuses by our concerned authorities and Reformed Support Unit (RSU) Sindh Karachi. First, before job, we were the victim of unemployment which is considered to be one of the great social problems and a curse for any nation. Due to this nuisance, we under went many more problems and crises of life and were thoroughly in the lap of poverty which is called the mother of all crimes. We were hand to mouth and never took the breath of basic comforts. It is a great blessing of Allah Almighty Who made us successful candidates on merit basis through the test, but our higher authorities seen to be unhappy finding us with these jobs and are interest less, careless and even not serious to release our salaries of more than 12 months. Secondly, after a long cry against injustice and negligence, we, poor teachers became the victim of flood which not flew away our each and everything but also destroyed us completely. Now we are not labeled only flood affectees but also salary affectees. Even knowing these all crises and problems, our cruel higher authorities and R.S.U are playing the game of hide and seek with us and have no any sympathy with us to solve our problem and at last compelled us to come on the roads for hunger strikes and protests. Thirdly, we appreciate the step which was taken by our reverend Education Minister, Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq who not only ordered the higher authorities and R.S.U but also gave them ultimatum to solve the problem and release our salaries within a week. But it is to be said with great sorrow that a week has passed away but even they failed to solve our problem of salary which is hanging like a sword of Damocles and disobeyed the respected concerned Minister of Education by not full filling his order. Therefore, once again we, poor teachers are supplicating a minute plea with our august hands and conveying our message to the reverend Education Minister and World Bank, please for God's sake, take our matter seriously if you respect the teachers and have a pity on us by taking a concrete step to solve and release our salaries of more than 12 months. ALL JUNIOR SCHOOL TEACHERS DISTRICT JACOBABAD"

700 private schools to open in Sindh
Karachi: The Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) has launched the third phase of its Promoting Low-Cost Private Schooling in Rural Sindh (PPRS) project under which at least 700 additional private schools will be opened across 10 targeted districts.

The project was launched during a seminar at a local hotel on Tuesday.

Speaking on the occasion, Director SEF Aziz Kabani said that their foundation was working for the promotion of public-private partnership for providing access to quality education in underprivileged areas of Sindh.

The efforts of the Adopt-A-School Programme (AASP) and its partners for public school reform were highlighted on the occasion. Two of the SEF's flagship initiatives working with public and private sectors were also showcased at the event.

Senior Manager SEF Ambreena Ahmed presented the SEF portfolio, introducing the interventions undertaken in the public, private and community schooling sectors. SEF officials Adnan Mobin (Senior Manager, Learning Support Unit), Tauseef Latif (Manager, Assessment Unit) and Noman Siddiqui (Senior Manager, Monitoring and Evaluation) highlighted SEF's work in various areas.

SEF's PPRS Coordinator Sana-e-Zehra Haidry presented the PPRS project model as one of SEF's primary public-private partnership initiatives in Sindh. The project aims to promote long-term public-private partnership through providing per child fee subsidy to 1000 private schools catering to 250,000 direct beneficiaries across Sindh.

"Enrolled students would not pay any tuition fees while the management of the schools will receive Rs 450 per female student and Rs 350 each for male student studying at these schools," she said.

During 2009 and 2010, entrepreneurs for 300 schools under PPRS project received the offer letters for establishing new private schools in 10 districts of Sindh, where dropout rate was higher than other districts. The project was being funded by World Bank and UNESCO.

She also shared the experiences of earlier phases and invited the private sector for partnership in the process of extending free quality education to children from marginalised communities in remote areas.

Senior Manager SEF Sadaf Junaid Zuberi highlighted the AASP milestones since its inception in 1997.

"The results have been noteworthy both in terms of infrastructural improvements in the school and support and improvement of the teaching-learning process. To date more than 350 successful adoptions have been made that benefited thousands of children belonging to marginalised areas," she said.

Aziz Kabani presented the AASP's future plan, saying that the SEF with the commitment of education minister and secretary education was ready to take the public school reforms plan a step forward.

He also underlined that school adoption will be contractual and linked to students learning outcome.

During the question-answer session, the adopters highlighted various challenges they faced and requested for government support in facilitating a more effective reform program in public schools.

Senior Minister for Education and Literacy Pir Mazhar ul Haq was the chief guest on the occasion. He had to face harsh questions, however, he blamed former regime and local government system for the poor condition of education sector in Sindh.

He lauded the efforts of the SEF towards promoting lasting public-private partnership for the provision of quality education to marginalised children across the province. Later, he gave token of appreciation to the school adopters. The news
