BISE Lahore Matric results case

BISE barred from announcing Matric results
Lahore, July 29: The Lahore High Court has called report from the Lahore Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education by July 31 on a petition requesting to restrain the board from announcing the Matric result scheduled to be announced on August 1.

The court passed this order on a petition moved by a student, Abbas, who through his counsel Khawar Ikram Bhatti submitted that the petitioner appeared in the exam and answered all questions according to the syllabus and course recommended by the board.

The counsel said the board as per routine provided answer sheets to all examiners, which were not in accordance with the syllabus and course. He said this anomaly would badly affect the marking of petitioner's and other students' papers because the examiners would mark questions as per answer provided to them.

He said the board had announced the date for results and the present marking could cause serious damage to the petitioner and thousands of other students.

He requested the board should be restraint from announcing the results and it should be done only after providing answer sheets to the examiners according to the syllabus and course. The Nation

Increasing the effectiveness of public spending on education
Islamabad: The Institute of Social and Policy Sciences (I-SAPS) and Campaign for Quality Education (CQE) are jointly organising a policy dialogue on 'Effectiveness of Education Spending: Post-Budget Scenario' here on July 30.

The aim behind the policy dialogue is to share an analysis of the education budget for the fiscal year 2009-10 and to stimulate an evidence-based discussion on increasing effectiveness of public spending on education. The dialogue aims to engage parliamentarians, educationists, media, civil society and other key stakeholders in a process-oriented approach to enhance the effectiveness of public spending on education. It will focus on federal and provincial education budgets 2009-10, although comparisons with previous years will also be drawn for important issues.

The speakers at the post-budget policy dialogue will include experts in the fields of education, budgeting, and political economy. The dialogue is being organised with a view to creating and sustaining a vibrant interface with policymakers and other key stakeholders on education spending. The policy proposals finalised in the dialogue will be shared with respective governments. Further, it is envisaged that, apart from more issue-based policy dialogues, I-SAPS and CQE will track the education budget 2009-2010 and concurrently engage the government along the 2010-2011 budget cycle for improving the budgetary process, allocations and spending.

Budgetary allocations and spending have a direct impact on access and quality of education. Pakistan's educational performance has been marred by recurrent problems in education budgets of the federal, provincial and district governments. Overall, government spending appears to be too low when considered in the context of huge gaps in access and quality of education at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels. Ironically, national spending on education as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has been falling consecutively for the past two years: 2.50% in 2006-07; 2.47% in 2007-08; and 2.10% in 2008-09.

The problem is aggravated by misplaced priorities, low spending rates, mislead distribution of funds, system-wide leakages, poor oversight mechanisms, high administrative costs, delays in fiscal transfers and lack of transparency, to name a few. These problems are undermining citizens' access to quality education as a basic human right on one hand, and are limiting Pakistan's capacity to leverage the role of education in poverty reduction and human resource development, on the other.

In this context, I-SAPS has conducted an analysis of federal and provincial education budgets for 2009-10. The analysis unpacks the budgets in non-technical parlance and identifies issues, which entail significant implications for access and quality of education.

The findings reveal important issues. For example, Punjab has cut education budget by 6% over the previous year. While the employees-related expenses (salary) have been increased by 22%, the non-salary expenses (stationary, teaching aids, operational expenses) have been cut by 25%. These allocations do not conform to the Punjab government's plans for improving educational attainment in the province. Likewise, an unpacking of the federal budget shows an increase in allocations by 36%. At the same time, however, cuts in expenditure on various heads are likely to constrain the key institutions in performance of their core functions. For example, the costs of 'Project Pre-investment Analysis' have been reduced

from Rs0.2 million in 2008-09 to Rs0.05 million in 2009-10 for National Education Management Information System (NEMIS). Similarly, allocations for 112 un-approved projects of Higher Education Commission, scholarship schemes and cadet colleges are some of the budgetary priorities, which call into question, the equity and effectiveness of public spending on education in Pakistan.

The policy dialogue is being organised in collaboration with the Department for International Development (DFID) and will be held at Serena at 3:45 p.m. Minister of State for Education Ghulam Fareed Kathia will be the chief guest on the occasion.
