Govt schools yet to introduce science subjects in English
Peshawar: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Elementary and Secondary
Education (E&SE) Department is yet to introduce English as medium of
instruction for mathematics and science subjects from grade-6 onwards
in government schools though it had taken the decision to this effect
one and a half years ago.
Sources said that the introduction of English as medium of
instruction from grade-6 was aimed at preparing students to smoothly
continue their science education in the higher classes.
A notification to this effect was issued on January 30, 2012 and
according to it the decision should have been implemented in the
government schools with the start of academic year 2012-13, the sources
However, teachers of government schools in Peshawar told Dawn that
the government had not provided English medium books to the schools and
they continued to teach the science subjects in Urdu.
When contacted, a prominent educationist wishing anonymity praised
the previous government's decision, but questioned who would teach
mathematics and science subjects in English in government schools.
"I think the government school teachers can not teach in English
because they have no such experience," he said and added that it would
be a disaster for the students if English was made medium of instruction
without imparting proper training to the teachers.
Wishing anonymity, a principal of a government higher secondary
school told Dawn that English as medium of instruction for all science
subjects should have been introduced much earlier, which would have
enabled the students of government schools to compete with that of
private schools. He said that students of government schools were mostly
from poor background and couldn't afford private school fee, so if
English was made the medium of instruction such students would not be
He said that the subject matter of science books being taught in Urdu
was actually translated from English. The science students qualifying
the secondary examinations start getting education in English from
intermediate level in continuation of their previous education in Urdu.
For instance, at matric level the government school students learn a
word 'Khulia', but after promotion to college they would use the English
alternative 'cell" for the same thing. So during the lecture at college
level, the same students tends to translate many words in their minds
into English due to which they miss many things and get puzzled at the
end of the lecture.
He said that the scientists had explained every topic in English with
a particular taste and flow, which was virtually lost when translated
to another language. Such things become hard to understand, he said. He
said that English language had more market value compared to Urdu
because all the research and modern education had been documented in
With the change of medium of instruction, conceptual clarity of the
students would be initiated from the early stage, said an educationist
serving on a senior position in the education department. He, however,
said that the students of intermediate classes would have no English
problem in higher classes. Directorate of Curriculum and Teachers
Education (DCTE) director Bashir Hussain Shah, when contacted, said that
without prior training of teachers, English as medium of instruction
for science subjects could not be introduced. "Medium of instruction
will be changed after imparting proper training to the relevant
teachers," he said.
Asked when the teachers training will start, he said that the DCTE
had completed all arrangements of funds and support materials for
"Let's see what the new provincial government decides about it," he
said. Mr Shah said that the training would be started when they would
get go-ahead from the government in this regard.Dawn
