People question donation collection by private schools
Lahore: As more and more people have been opting to send their kids to
private sector schools in the wake of low quality education and deteriorating
standard of public schools, many are getting upset because of certain "unwanted"
practices of these private institutions.
Besides complaining about heavy
amount charged at the time of admission, people have been expressing concern
over heavy fee structure and collection of extra funds under various heads on
The compulsory purchase of books, uniform and other
stationery items from prescribed stores by some of the elite schools are some of
the other practices, which have been inviting stakeholders' criticism over the
However, there are different opinions over collection of donations
on part of private schools by students for various noble causes such as helping
flood or quake affectees.
There are those who favour the move saying such
practices motivate the young minds to help people caught in trouble. "It teaches
students that how to contribute for rehabilitation and welfare of fellow human
beings," believes Aleem whose son goes to a leading private school.
further said the school management, where his child was studying, used to ask
students to bring donations in case the country faced a catastrophe like recent
earthquake in Balochistan and floods in various parts of the country.
added, "Though most of the students do not donate from their own pocket yet they
learn how to help those caught in trouble."
Nevertheless, there are those
who are against the collection of donations by students saying no one should be
forced to contribute.
"It is unfortunate that most of the schools make
it mandatory for students to bring donations, which is totally wrong," believes
Ali whose children go to an elite school too.
He said schools must not
make it compulsory for students to bring donations, adding in case someone
donates less than others he/she is faced with inferiority complex. "This may put
students into an embarrassing situation if they cannot arrange money because of
one reason or the other," he added.
"I don't mean that one should not
help those who are in trouble but the point is no one should be compelled rather
one should be let to share as he/she likes to," he further added.
said, "The elite schools generate huge funds then why their management do not
Academic circles are also critical of unbridled
working of the private schools. Referring to the Punjab government's ongoing
efforts to amend the Punjab Private Educational Institutions (Promotion and
Regulation) Ordinance 1984, they have urged the government to take into account
all the factors in this connection.
At the same time, they have also
urged the government to uplift standard of government schools. They believe it
is unfortunate that at present the competition is among private schools only as
far as quality education is concerned, saying efforts should be made to ensure a
comeback of government schools in this competition.
