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
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.
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.
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.
