'29,035 schools in Sindh without power'
Karachi: Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazhar-ul Haq has disclosed that 29,035 schools in the province are still functioning without electricity though Rs2.3 billion were allocated to district governments in the outgoing financial year for providing missing facilities to about 30,000 schools.

Of the total 49,028 schools in the province 7,572 were not functional, while among the rest 29,035 were running without power and 5,037 without furniture, the minister said in reply to the questions asked by MPAs Humera Alwani and Dr Muhammad Rafique Banbhan during the question hour in the assembly session on Monday.

He said the dilapidated condition of thousands of schools spoke volumes of corruption and mismanagement in the utilisation of funds. A high-level inquiry was being carried out into the acts of corruption and mismanagement of the previous government, he said, adding that if charges of corruption or inefficiency proved "no one would be spared". He said legal action would be taken against all the corrupt elements.

The minister explained that this government had planned to provide all missing facilities to the schools, including electricity and furniture. In the outgoing fiscal year (2007-08) Rs2.3billion had been allocated, including Rs100 million funds for each district, to provide such facilities, he said, adding that a similar amount would be provided in the financial year 2008-09.

Elaborating the details of foreign funding provided to improve the education system and its standard during the period from January 2006 to April 2008, he said the Asian Development Bank gave Rs397.047 million for the Decentralized Elementary Education Project, Sindh. The Canadian International Development Agency gave Rs392 million for the Sindh Elementary Teachers Training Project. The World Food Programme funded in the form of edible oil for assistance to girls' primary education in Sindh; the Aga Khan Foundation, USAID and the Royal Netherlands Embassy gave over Rs27.941 million for releasing confidence and creativity as well for early childhood development; the Toad Sector Development Directorate/Asian Development Bank gave Rs10.2 million for the road safety education project, US consulate gave more than Rs1.807 million for the project 'Access to English Language Education For All'; the Commonwealth Education Fund, Save the Children gave Rs3.305 million; Unesco provided Rs602,326 for Education for All, Rs1.204 million for Teachers Training Programme and Rs575,386 for Translation and Reproduction of Education Booklet; and the Asia Foundation gave Rs4.692 million for literacy, health care, skill development and early childhood education.

In reply to another question, he said the Sindh government intended to put a check on the high fees being charged by private schools in order to improve the overall education standard. He also said that the government would ensure that all private schools teach Sindhi language to their students when the schools would reopen after summer vacation.

Explaining the functions and responsibilities of the directorate of privately managed institutions, Pir Mazharul Haq said the directorate was fostering students success by facilitating, monitoring and evaluating the use of current, proven and effective instructional practices to ensure that each student acquire knowledge, skills and core values necessary to achieve personal success and enrich the country. Besides, he said, it's functioning to create a thriving, dynamic and inspiring educational environment in the privately managed institutions in the province that produces self-directed lifelong learners who can achieve full potentials in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development.

He said the directorate was responsible to monitor and assist about 12,000 private institutions from secondary to bachelor levels to improve the quality of education, registration and renewal of registration of private institutions and their inspection through committees constituted for the purpose.

Replying to another question, he acknowledged that some big and reputed schools charged very high fee from students and they raised the fee at their whim. However, he said, only those parents get their wards admitted to these schools who can afford high fees. Dawn
