High fee of private schools problematic
Peshawar: Majority favours private schools for their children but high fees are problematic for them. According to a recent Gallup survey a majority (62%) of urban Pakistanis believe that the quality of education in private schools is better than in government schools. But only one quarter (26%) of them are satisfied with the fee structure, whereas 67% complain about high fees in private schools.
A small number of 3% believe that fees are very low while 4% did not give a response. Nearly forty percent (40%) of urban Pakistanis also believe that all schools should be run by government, 56% said private schools should be permitted to function and the remaining did not express a view. The Gallup survey on education was conducted with parents and it asked them a series of questions on the education of their school going children. The survey findings also indicated that each year nearly one million urban children enroll themselves in urban schools and about half as many change a school within the same city or move elsewhere.
Sixty-four percent (64%) of parents who admitted their children in class one said they did not face any problem; however 26% said it was quite difficult to obtain admission for a child in first grade. The survey was conducted by Gallup Pakistan, among a representative sample of more than 1000 men and women in the major urban areas of the country. The sample included a cross section of people belonging to various age, income, education and linguistic backgrounds. F.P Report
Committees to stop regularisation of ineligible teachers
Peshawar: The elementary and secondary education department has formed scrutiny committees to ensure that ineligible contract teachers seeking regularisation of their services in Grade 16 and 17 are not confirmed, sources said.
After the government announced regularisation of services of contract employees, many contract teachers, who had not joined their respective schools under the agreement, also applied for confirmation of their services, they said. In view of shortage of teachers, the provincial government had appointed teachers on contract basis in 2005 and continued to extend their contracts for six months or one year.
Due to meagre salaries and temporary nature of the job, many teachers had opted not to join their duties and preferred working somewhere else. Each scrutiny committee is led by a chairman and has two members, which will look into the details of teachers in the designated districts.
Swabi Government High School principal Liaqat Ali has been appointed chairman of the committee that will look into cases of contract teachers in southern districts, including Kohat, Hangu, Karak and Bannu. Ahmad Jan, principal of Government High School at Charsadda Khas, is leading the committee which will examine the documents of contract teachers in Peshawar, Charsadda, Mardan, Nowshera and Swabi districts.
The committee headed by Hameedullah Jan, principal of Government Higher Secondary School at Pezu, Lakki Marwat, will scrutinise applications of contract teachers in Dera Ismail Khan, Tank and Lakki Marwat. Similarly, Abdur Raqeeb, chairman of another committee, will conduct scrutiny of cases of contract teachers in Lower and Upper Dir and Chitral.
Sultan Mehmood and his team will visit Malakand, Swat and Buner to do the job. Sharif Gul and Ghulam Mustafa, who lead their respective committees, will decide the eligibility of teachers in Haripur, Abbottabad and Mansehra, and Battagram, Shangla and Kohistan, respectively.
The committees will carry out scrutiny of appointment orders of teachers concerned from the list supplied to the directorate of elementary and secondary education by executive district officers concerned. Dawn
E-learning web portal
Islamabad: The Roots School System has launched a special online home study web portal http://www.rootsschool.edu.pk/homestudy.
The objective of the web portal is to ensure that 'learning never stops' and the basic facets of learning continue to be fulfilled even if students are at home for any reason. The online outreach programme by Roots refers to the instruction at home through curriculum posted on the web portal.
The Roots home study portal contains grade-wise printable worksheets, virtual assessments, comprehension sheets, activity sheets, descriptive writing sheets, guided writing sheets, supplementary sheets and assignment sheets for all subjects for each age group. Moreover, it offers teaching guidelines for parents and students, virtual Q-A forms for asking home questions, and a host of web links with teacher advice. The worksheets are divided into levels, which include Montessori to Grade 7.
Online learning potentially allows students and parents' access to specialised learning resources and materials, and greater flexibility in scheduling self-study time and resources. The best part is that parents can be with their children during the online study sessions and sponsor an extended classroom at their own doorstep.
Addressing the launching ceremony of the web portal here on Wednesday, Chaudhry Faisal Mushtaq, director of the Roots School System e-Learning Programme, said the goal of the portal is to provide resources that our students could actually use to supplement their learning while at home. It also aims to provide for self and home study guided learning opportunities in parental and self-supervision to catch up with lost teaching and learning hours at school in the current circumstances. He said young students are the future of the country and we must work together to make them succeed even at home.
