Private students in matric exams | President's Talent Scholarship

Private students to appear in science matric exams in Punjab. Sindh education boards object over PBCC's decision
Karachi, Mar 16: The education boards of Sindh have criticised the education boards of Punjab for allowing private candidates to appear for the matriculation examinations of science subjects starting from next week.

The criticism surfaced during the 23rd meeting of the Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) held in Karachi. "The objection came from the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Larkana (BISEL) Chairman Prof Mushtaq Ahmed Sundrani who said that such permission should also be given in other provinces," an IBCC official privy to the meeting said. "Sundrani raised this point, while also drawing the attention of the IBCC members to the fact that this year, private candidates have been allowed to sit in the science exams in Punjab. He was of the opinion that the permission goes against IBCC's unanimous decision taken last year, which prohibited private candidates to sit in the science exams," the officer revealed.

"If permission has been granted on the matter, then it should be introduced in Sindh as well," Sundrani said, adding that as the time for appearing in the regular exams is now over, the permission should be applicable from the supplementary exams held in the province.

He also stated that students of madressahs should be allowed to appear in the science examinations, so as to facilitate their incorporation into the mainstream education sector. "In this regard, the administration of madressahs should be authorised to forward cases of their students to the education boards," Sundrani commented. However, the representatives of the Punjab Boards Committee of Chairmen (PBCC) defended the permission, stating that private students were allowed in pursuance of special directives of the Punjab government. "The PBCC had refused to allow private students, whether they from madressahs or any other institute, but after receiving orders by the provincial government in this regard, the authority was compelled to issue the directives," said a PBCC representative.

"This should not be viewed as a violation against IBCC's decision, as the permission for the private students is valid for this year only," he argued and added that from next year onwards, private candidates would not be allowed to sit for science subjects.

After the debate between Prof Mushtaq and the PBCC representative, IBCC gave approval to the Punjab boards, permitting them to let private students appear in the examinations of science subjects. However, IBCC reiterated its opinion that from next year, private candidates should not be allowed to sit in the examinations at any cost.

Whither Urdu literature?
As he sat reading his poetry, there was pin drop silence in the huge hall-like room. Panning the room one could see avid faces focused on Sarmad Sehbai as he uttered each line in his deep, resonant voice. It was quite obvious that the poems were being enjoyed by those present, and who seemed to have a penchant for all things literary in life.

But what was disturbing was the fact that all the faces present were above the age of 40, barring a few young people who belonged to the host family. It was a delightful evening that could have gone on for hours had it not been for the host, who stepped in to thank the poet and announce dinner.

Does this lack of attention and interest in the younger generation bode well for Urdu literature, a language so rich and expressive? One of the guests, noticing the lack of young faces, exclaimed that literary Urdu would die out with their generation as young people hardly had time to pay attention to literary gatherings. And with the kind of education they were getting rich and poor alike and with little time being given by the elders at home, how was the younger generation to know what the Urdu language was all about?

Channels aren't helping the cause either with the kind of language being used in serials and talk shows. And the Indian channels aren't much help either. Surprisingly, even the songwriters are not doing their job properly, using slang which is the 'in' thing these days. Gone are the days when film songs had melody and good poetry. The educational institutions are not far behind, hiring teachers who do not know the nuances of the language themselves most of them anyway.

Urdu literature seems to be doing better in the neighbouring country rather than in Pakistan. 'Minglish' is the order of the day.

Sindh goverment, CDGK vow to work for quality education
Karachi: Cooperation between CDGK and Sindh government is proving beneficial for the future of education in the metropolis and should be supported in other parts of the province, said the Adviser to Chief Minister Sindh, Sharmila Farooqui.

She paid surprise visit on Saturday to CDGK-run SITE Model School, developed by CMIS, and hoped that cooperation between the CDGK and Sindh government in education sector would change the destiny of poor masses when such type of projects would run across the province.

She was accompanied by Chairperson of Committee for Monitoring and Improvement of CDGK Schools (CMIS), Farhana Iqbal, Chairman, Social Reforms Committee of Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Muhammad Siddique Shaikh, Acting Nazim SITE Town, Badshah Khan, EDO Education Muhammad Ibrahim Kambhar, Representative of Hinopak Clerita, Nausheen Shahzad, Farnaz, DO Elementary and others.

Lauding the efforts of City Nazim Mustafa Kamal, Sharmila said that the City government was doing a marvellous job by revolutionising the education sector and an unbelievable change had been brought in the CDGK-run schools which are being developed under the Pilot project scheme in various towns.

These schools were unable to get too much consideration of the parents regarding the education conditions, but now with the efforts of CDGK and Sindh government, it is to set examples at broader level and have earned great interest of the guardians for the quality education for their children. Sharmila was delighted that now the environment of the school has been changed and all civic facilities are available including computer lab, auditorium, library, health clinic with appointment of a lady doctor and necessary medicines are also available here. These facilities are not available in hundreds of those big private schools of the City where high fees are being charged, she said. The Nation
