When teachers don't make the grade
Karachi: With their reservations regarding the role of university teachers, senior professors believe that drastic changes are required to improve the standard of education.

Dr Muhammad Qaisar, Vice Chancellor of Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST), is wary of teachers' performance, especially in terms of their ability to guide and lead the students. "Since I have assumed the charge of VC, I am aggrieved to see that teachers are either involved in eliciting benefits from the university or indulging in petty politics."

A survey of the university reveals how true the allegations made by the VC are. In one case, the chairperson of a department in the Faculty of Science displayed poor understanding of his subject while speaking to us, a state which could not have been expected from a university teacher.

A senior administrative staff member of FUUAST was not surprised at this state, he explained that most university teachers "lack professional knowledge, communication skills and are seldom able to influence students in a positive manner."

Dr Shahana Urooj Kazmi, Professor at the Department of Microbiology and Dean, Faculty of Science at the University of Karachi (KU), believes that drastic changes are required to improve the standard of education. "Restoration of student unions, introduction of a full-fledged semester system and a change in the attitude of teachers are essential if we are serious about our university (KU)." Meanwhile, she adds, that even students are not happy because they do not have representative unions while the teachers have failed to create a rapport with the students." Kazmi criticised the culture of Red-Tapism in the university and the unfortunate emergence of a separate class of vice chancellors, deans and chairpersons. "There is a tendency among teachers that they do not conduct their classes in the first period. Upon inspection I discovered that in the morning only a few chairpersons were present in their departments while classrooms were locked and students were waiting outside."

Dr Zahida Maqsood, Professor in the Department of Chemistry, complained about the appalling behaviour of teachers with each other and especially mentioned a chairperson in the Arts Faculty who was removed from office on the complaint of her staff members. "I was surprised to find that the chairperson was running her department like an estate. She has a sister there as a lecturer and was about to induct her daughter in the same capacity," she said.

Both Kazmi and Maqsood were highly critical of 'cooperative teaching' at the university and described it as a form of corruption that allows the chairpersons and senior professors to hire co-op teachers of their own liking while obstructing others from entering the profession. The co-op teachers act as the 'mules of burden' while the permanent staff lounges in their rooms and enjoy their salaries and perks.

Meanwhile, Beenish Tabrez, Ahmer Hayat and Afshan Begum - students from the Department of Applied Chemistry - were of the opinion that the accusation that students lack discipline is unfounded. "We know that most students here are serious about their studies." On the other hand, she added, "we feel that most teachers here are unable to inspire the students and provide them enough guidance mainly because their own knowledge is superficial."

Salam Bano and Javed Hayat Malik from the Department of Education talked about the presence of Rangers in the university and the insistence of most teachers to retain them for security reasons. Most students wonder from whom the teachers need protection?
