RBISE unlikely to announce SSC exam results on August 2
Rawalpindi: The Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (RBISE) has compiled about 60% of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Annual Examination 2011 results and it would be difficult for it to announce the results on August 2, the set deadline, sources said on Monday.
According to sources, the board employees have compiled about 60% of results so far and it would take more time to announce the results.
Sources revealed that the RBISE employees were not given proper training to work with the online system. The concerned authorities had introduced the new system without educating staff members that's why students have faced many problems, including mess of roll number slips and now delay in the announcement of results, they said.
Sources said that despite announcement of the date for results, a good number of students daily visit the office of the board to get an update on results. Students are worried about their admission in government colleges.
They said that induction of online system was a good decision but there is a dire need to train the staff members first. Now the board administration is facing an embarrassing situation because of poor management.
RBISE Spokesman Irslan Cheema, when contacted said: "We haven't received any notification so far to announce SSC examination results on August 2. All boards are still waiting for the result announcement date from the education department.
He said that the RBISE still has to compile its SSC results and it would take some time to compile results.
He further said that the education secretary and the RBISE chairman would take a decision on the announcement of results in a meeting scheduled for today (Tuesday).
It may be mentioned that all education boards in Punjab were scheduled to announce SSC examination results on July 21, but it was postponed at the eleventh hour. The news
Schoolteachers association alleges malpractices in transfers, postings
Rawalpindi: The Punjab Secondary Education Schoolteachers Association (PSESTA), Rawalpindi Chapter, has accused the school managements of violating the government orders in transfers and postings of male and female teachers.
PSESTA President (Punjab Chapter) Mohammad Shafiq Bhulwalia and PSESTA Central President Chaudhry Mohammad Aslam Gujar said that the Punjab education secretary has issued clear orders for following merit while making postings and transfers of teachers-instructors, but managements of schools were not following the policy.
The School Education Department of Punjab, through a circular, lifted ban with immediate effect on postings and transfers of teachers in government schools, on June 30, 2011, which would remain imposed till July 30, 2011. While issuing directives, the Punjab government has directed managements of concerned government schools, including primary, secondary, middle and higher, to follow the conditions and merit while making transfers and postings.
However in violation of the provincial government orders, the managements of educational institutions are creating hurdles and problems for teachers, who want transfer and posting to their desired are, they alleged.
The PSESTA representatives alleged that merit is not being followed due to political intervention by parliamentarians. The parliamentarians provide list of their candidates (teachers) to school managements for posting and transfer. They alleged that teachers, who don't have any approach or connections with MNAs and MPAs of their respective constituencies, are finding it hard to get their services transferred to their desired stations. The school managements direct teachers-instructors to get recommendations from the concerned parliamentarians, if they really want their work done. Otherwise, their cases are being rejected, the PSESTA officials alleged.
They alleged that during last 25 days over 400 transfers and postings have been made and all have been done on political intervention. While the remaining teachers whose cases are genuine for transfer to their desired stations are suffering, as they have no connections.
They appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to intervene into the matter so that miseries of teachers could be alleviated.
When contacted Punjab Education Secretary (Schools) Aslam Kamboh for his comments on allegations levelled by PSESTA representatives, he termed it nothing but rumours. "It is only being aired by some teachers. MNAs and MPAs have nothing to do with postings and transfers of teachers. Rather teachers who fail to get their case approved, approach MNAs and MPAs to seek their recommendations. No parliamentarian could provide list for transfers or postings of teachers to school managements," he added.
He said, "Rather transfers and postings are done by the city district government under the supervision of the concerned DCOs. The concerned DCO enjoys the power of making transfers and postings of teachers up to scale 18 and grade 19." Dawn

Islamabad: The Stanford University Linear Accelerator Centre (SLAC) has acknowledged the research work of two students of the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), who are currently working on a joint project at the university by acknowledging it through a write-up published in the SLAC Magazine.
Sadia Rehman and Amber Madeeha Zeb are pursuing their master's degrees in Communications Systems at the NUST. They are the first females to join the SLAC as part of a joint project aimed at improving the country's internet connections.

The Nust students proceeded to the Stanford University for one-year research under the HEC sponsored PERN project being jointly pursued by NUST and SLAC. The significant contribution made by these researchers has brought home pride and honour.
The story published in the magazine highlights the significant contribution made by the young researchers to the joint project.

Zeb's analysis recently determined that intermittent power outages are the biggest problems.
