Private schools defy summer vacation schedule
Lahore: Defying the Punjab government's instructions to observe summer vacation from June 1, most of the private schools remained open on Tuesday.
A notification of School Education Department, issued on May 31, clearly mentions that the schedule of summer vacation would be observed in all the schools (government/privately managed) in Punjab w.e.f June 1 to September 9. However, contrary to the notification, most of the private schools remained open on the first day of June.
Meanwhile, the Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) made the issue more complex, allowing its partner schools in 29 districts of the province to hold free summer camps for the students.
The stakeholders argue that, on the one hand, the government is against summer camps by private schools during summer vacation while, on the other hand, its own organization is promoting the same.
There is a general perception that most of the schools did not observe the summer vacation from June 1 as they have yet to collect tuition fees. The stakeholders argue that most of the private schools schedule exams and tests in early June every year, a ëgenuineí excuse for failing to comply with the government instructions.
The recent move of private schools not only mocks the governmentís decision but also puts a question mark over the much-talked about uniformity in education system. One wonders when the government can not ensure uniformity in administrative affairs how the much-needed initiative of uniform education system would be achieved.
The stakeholders have been demanding the establishment of a regulatory body for privately managed schools in order to streamline their affairs, being quite critical of provincial governmentís role in this connection.
The general public is concerned over many initiatives of private schools, like compulsory purchasing of stationery items from prescribed shops and collection of funds under various heads.
It is pertinent to mention here that Punjab chief minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif had formed a committee to give suggestions to set up an independent regulatory authority for private schools. However, despite the lapse of over one and a half years, nothing practical step has been taken so far. Earlier, the Punjab government under PML-Qís regime had also raised slogans of bringing private schools under some kind of regulation but to no avail.
Lahore Education EDO Dr Muhammad Arshad said some private schools were still open because they had to collect fee. He said some schools had been issued warning notices, hoping they would start observing summer vacation soon.
A number of representatives of private schools said the government took the decision of summer vacation in isolation every year, ignoring the plans and activities of private schools. They said the government should also consult private sector before making any such decision. The news
