Primary school teachers recruitment

Teachers recruitment, flawed list taken back after protest
Karachi, March 18: Candidates qualifying for the post of Primary School Teachers (PSTs) are faced with double dilemma missing of names and the change in order in the merit list displayed at the EDO (Education) Office. However, the whole exercise appears in futility as the powers responsible are yet to strike a cord.

The affected candidates blocked the Karachi-Larkana road near Police Training School for sometime on Wednesday to register their resentment over the blunders. The protesting candidates raised slogans against the discrepancies in merit list.

They showed burnt pages of the merit list displayed on Tuesday which then was replaced but with the missing 'yes' and 'no' column which has created further confusion.

SPO Irshad Bhutto forced the candidates to call off their protest and clear the road after threatening them of action.

Yasir Bhatti said that a list of candidates was displayed in the office of the EDO Education on Tuesday with remarks 'yes' and 'no' mentioned against the names of candidates to be 'recruited' or 'rejected'.

The advertisement initially stated no conditions but announced of providing jobs to candidates securing 60 per cent marks in test but later recruitment was linked with extra educational qualifications, he said.

EDO (Education) Syed Rasool Bakhsh Shah said that he displayed the unsigned merit list on Tuesday only to identify mistakes which was replaced on Wednesday. He said that education officer Akhtar Korejo should be contacted for correction if a mistake was traced.

EDO further disclosed that not a single vacancy of PST was announced at the time of advertisement but later, MNA Faryal Talpur got sanctioned 1,158 seats under special SNE, and another 120 were created thus pushing the number to 1,278.

The World Bank and Sindh's Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq are yet to agree on student-teacher ratio as former stresses on 50:1 and the later on 45:1 with the aim to accommodating the maximum number of candidates.

Talks between the World Bank officials and education minister are scheduled for 25th & 26th of this month in Karachi for finalisation of criterion while the District Recruitment Committee (DRC) headed by DCO would meet next week to "prepare" merit list, he said. The EDO evaded the query as to what compelled him to prepare a merit list which has caused confusion among candidates when the matter among the World Bank, Education Department and the DRC were yet not finalised.

Protesters smell a rat behind the whole exercise.

Source said that the number of candidates qualifying for the post of PST was 3,600 and 3,100 among them had additional educational degrees to qualify for the seat.

The candidates securing 60 per cent marks have been protesting for months to press the education department to issue them job offer letters.

BSEK decided to stop accepting any form
Karachi: In a shift from its previous year's practice of accepting forms even during the examination, the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) has decided to stop accepting any form for the SSC (Class IX & X) exams 2010 after March 18, five days before the starting date.

BSEK Chairman Anzar Hussain Zaidi said on Wednesday that the decision had been taken to avoid the problems that had cropped up last year. He said no extension in the date for the submission of forms would be given.

He was briefing newsmen in the board's conference room about the arrangements made for the examinations. The board's Secretary, Ms Hoor Mazhar, and Controller of Examinations Kalim Asghar Kirmani were also present.

Mr Zaidi said that more than 300,000 candidates had been registered for the examinations and 431 centres (241 for boys and 190 for girls) set up for them at various government and private schools.

He said that the board had requested to the Sindh home department to ensure proper security arrangements at and around the centres in order to maintain law and order.

To ensure the holding of the exams in a transparent manner and checking use of unfair means by candidates, the BSEK had set up more than 100 vigilance committees, he said, adding that the provincial education secretary and he himself would monitor the exam process.

He said that among the registered candidates, 160,000 would appear in Class X and 110,000 in Class IX exams in Science group. More than 33,000 regular candidates would appear in Class X exams and 32,000 regular candidates in Class IX in General group.

In addition, about 14,500 candidates would take their Class X and IX examination as private candidates, he added.

Mr Zaidi said that an 'examination reporting cell' had been set up at the board's office to immediately attend any complaint received from examination centres.

Replying to a question, Mr Zaidi said that the Class-X marks sheets carrying the candidate's photograph would be introduced from next year.

LUMHS students clash
Hyderabad: Two medical students suffered injuries in a clash between two groups of activists belonging to student organisations at a canteen at the Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences on Wednesday.

The groups were just joking away their time when a group took offence at some remarks and vented its anger. They exchanged hot words and later clashed using motorcycle chains as their weapons.

Mukhtiar Wassan and Imran Leghari suffered injuries and were taken to Jamshoro branch of the university's hospital.

Police have registered an FIR on a complaint lodged by a student against eight accused. Police surrounded hostels to avert further clashes. The situation at the campus remains tense. Dawn
