Private schools against online education

Private schools against imparting education online
Karachi, Nov 5: The administration of private schools has rejected the idea of imparting education online due to the recent wave of terrorism. Thse institutions are seriously considering over the continuous threat of terrorism that may cause deferment in the educational activities. The facility of email cannot be ignored in term of giving home work to students at their home, besides some other sources are also being considered by some elite-class private schools, a Chief Executive Officer of a leading private school said on Tuesday.

She said that some private elite educational institutions in the City had already been sent threat-letters by unknown groups, but the government did nothing in this regard apart from issuing eight-point security plan to schools.

Talking about the issue of online teaching, an owner of a private school said that majority of schools have already rejected the idea of online teaching because of reluctance from parents who usually do not allow their children to use internet facility at home. However, the majority of school entities are agreed over the efficacy of the home work that can be given to students in case of any untoward situation to protect the academic time of the batches, he said.

The provincial government has no plan to save the educational institutions in the province, despite the fact that private institutions especially missionary and community educational institutions are on the real risk of terror activities, he claimed.

It is pertinent to mention here that a bomb hoax at the primary section of Saint's Joseph School few days back had created the immense panic and fear among the students and staff of the Saint Joseph School.

A lady teacher of a leading private school of city said that the school's administration had directed teachers to collect the date of students so that in state of any mishap such data can be used to cover the academic loss of the students.

Besides, parents have expressed their concerns over the presence of vendors outside the premises of the missionary schools where thousands of students are enrolled.

One of the complainers informed that vendors, some of them were Afghans, used to setup their temporary pushcarts outside the schools that was not only threat to the security of the institutions but also schools' managements. The nation

A shady reopening of ghost schools
Karachi: At a time when the country faces an economic crisis and the government needs to undertake austerity measures to tackle the situation, the Sindh Education Ministry-arranged trip for journalists to witness Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq reopen ghost schools in Nangarparkar is a perfect example of how taxpayers' money is being wasted. The two-day trip's sole purpose was that the journalists of Karachi and Hyderabad could witness the reopening of the schools first-hand. But despite that, the minister went on to inaugurate the schools with the journalists left waiting at the local administration office. The journalists were shocked when education ministry officials told them that the minister had already visited the schools and he would brief them about the reopening later.

When the journalists demanded that they should be taken to the 'reopened schools', the officials turned down their demand. Many journalists, irked by the attitude of the education ministry, refused to attend the minister's briefing. It is pertinent to mention here that there are around 8,000 ghost schools in interior Sindh and according to the education ministry's reports, around 1,400 of them have been reopened. Nangarparkar is a small town located in the Tharparkar district of Sindh. The media has highlighted the issue of ghost schools in this area time and again. The area's influential people are using many of these schools as their personal property.

Had the journalists been allowed to visit the schools, they could have provided an actual picture of the progress made on the rehabilitation of ghost schools to the public, however, the education ministry officials' reluctance in taking them to the schools has raised many questions. What is more puzzling is that apart from some close aides of the minister, no one knows which schools did the minister visit, how many schools are still closed and what happened at the time of the reopening. The education ministry officials later attributed the cancellation of the journalists' visit to the schools to miscommunication among different ministry officials. If this is true, it is a glaring example of how things work in the government departments.

"The taxpayers' money gets wasted in this manner. The journalists should have been taken to the schools so that the true picture of the situation could be presented to the masses," said Irfan Jan, a senior journalist, who has been working in the field of education for the last 12 years. One of the officials of the education department said the minister was angry with the officials who did not take the journalists to the schools. However, this was not enough. Daily times
