Peshawar primary secondary schools registration

Registration of primary, middle and high schools
Peshawar, Nov 13: Every street in Peshawar is humming with schoolboys and girls as many people have set up schools there taking it as a lucrative business to earn easy money. These public schools are following their own laws without any fear and fleecing the public by charging heavy fee from the students.

Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has said that "seek knowledge from the cradle to grave". According to a survey, many people know that education is key to progress therefore they want to educate their children however high the cost they may have to pay.

The opportunists are thus busy in exploiting this basic urge of the parents and have opened schools almost in all the localities of the City. But dozens of these schools have their own agendas and are minting money on the pretext of imparting education through different tactics.

They are working without any fear with the connivance of officials in the relevant departments. Although majority of the private schools are registered with the Education Department and Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) even then there is no check on them. There is a laid-down criteria for the registration of primary, middle and high schools prescribed by the Education Department and Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) but mostly it is not followed in true spirit.

Up till 2003, the registration of primary and middle schools was done by the Education Department but since 2004 this authority has been transferred to the BISE. After registration, the concerned authorities have no time to check any public school and when the school owner applies for yearly renewal of registration he gets it automatically without any inspection.

These schools are being usually run by nonprofessional and unqualified people who loot the poor in the name of providing education to their children. Most of the private schools indulge in other activities also to make money. They force their students to use only those books, copies and stationery items provided by the management of the school. The students are also advised to buy school uniform from the fixed stores.

In this way the owners get commission from the booksellers, earn much more by getting the notebooks, diaries and badges printed in their own names at cheap rates and selling those to the students at much higher cost thus pocketing the profits. Admission and monthly fee of these schools are not fixed and vary from student to student with the status of the family.

Rich people pay more than the less affluent. Most of the schools have no admission policy as they allow admission to any student to any class of his choice without any test and consideration of his age. The only motto is to earn more money. The monthly fee of these schools ranges between Rs 200 per a month to Rs 1500 per child in Nursery and varies with promotion into next grades.

The admission fee is from Rs 500 to Rs 5,000. Few schools have also started charging huge amount in the name of providing security to the students. These schools also earn by selling stationery items and foodstuffs to the students through tuc shops set up in their premises. The parents have complained about the quality of food items available at tuc shops which charging high rates for these items.

The main problem for the parents is acquiring text books for their wards. Despite repeated claims of the government that only a prescribed course should be taught in all schools every public school has its own course without any check of the government department. There are many types of courses available in the market like Oxford Books, New Century Books, Al-Gaba Books, Star Books, Al-Hadi Books, Green Books, Taj Books, Gohar Books, Millat Books, NWFP Text Books in the market. These schools teach only those courses the publishers of which provide more commission.

Public circles allege that private schools get handsome share from such publishers raging from 20 to 45 per cent. The pirated editions of high standard and quality books are also available in the market and most of the schools are using these books. The books are provided to the schools without any money which is paid later after collection from the students.

In many schools the students of two different classes are accommodated in a single room and only one teacher teaches both the classes at a time whereas both the classes study separate courses. The classrooms also lack proper facilities and the students have to sit on broken desks. There are no fans in summer and no heating arrangement for winter.
