Private schools told not to shorten summer vacation

KARACHI, May 23(Daily Times): The Sindh Education Department has warned the management of private schools to refrain from commencing the academic session on August 1, which will shorten the summer vacation by 15 days, PPI learnt Tuesday.

The education department has asked educational institutions, including privately-run institutions, to observe summer vacations from June 1 to August 15. However, the administrations of private schools are opposed to this.

According to an All Private Schools Management Association (APSMA) spokesman, the private schools have decided to resume the session on August 1, 'in greater interest of the students', as there has already been a lot of casual holidays this year.

This was stated by APSMA Chairman Khalid Shah, along with other office bearers, at a recent press conference. Shah said that any violation of the Sindh government's rules from private schools was acceptable to them if they are ready to pay any penalty in this regard.

A well-placed source in the education department said that the department issued directives to all public and private schools to commence the academic session from August 16. No compromise will be made on this issue, he added. He said that the decision was taken on the basis of prescribed rules and no one would be allowed to violate them.
