Many schools open today (27-Oct)

Karachi, Oct 27: Many private schools will open on Saturday, October 27, in order to complete coursework in time as they remained closed for almost 15 days.

Firstly, during Ramazan, most of the school management announced extended holidays against the scheduled official holidays, which were only four days starting from October 13 to October 16. Secondly, as the schools in the city reopened on Wednesday, October 17 were again officially shut down for a day owing to the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) rally on October 18 to avoid any inconvenience faced by parents and students due to the traffic mess.

Later, the government had to announce another holiday as violence gripped the city due to the twin bomb blasts. Thus, schools remained closed for whole week after Eid. Finally, the schools opened on Monday, October 22.

Keeping in view the academic loss, the management of private schools have decided to open schools on Saturday, as private schools work five days a week. The teachers are wondering how to cope with the situation, as in the past, the city remained closed for almost three to four months in total, whenever violence erupted.

With such incidents, the work load on school children automatically increases with students attending school normally for five hours a day and then having to rush to tuition centres. Furthermore, the entire day of a child is spent completing his homework and tuition work.

Consequently, students are unable to sustain pressures, which ultimately affect their productivity and presentation. The concept of giving homework during festivals and especially during Eid has also been opposed by many students and parents. As mid-term exams are often scheduled after Eid, students and teachers faced a severe blow, who are wondering how the syllabus will be completed in such a short span. Most teachers are unhappy with the decision of the school being opened on Saturday, as the extra effort put in by them will not be counted nor will they be paid over-time by the school management.
