'0.6m students studying free in private schools'

LAHORE, Sep 3: About 0.6 million students are getting free education and books in private schools under the Free Education Scheme and the number would be raised to one million by the end of the year, Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) managing director Dr Allah Bakhash Malik said on Sunday.

According to a press release by the All Pakistan Private Schools Welfare Association (APPSWA), Malik was speaking at a gathering arranged in his honour.

APPSWA president Syed Zulqarnain Shah praised Dr Malik and said he had improved the performance of the PEF after taking over as the managing director. The Foundation was running several programmes and funding private educational institutions, he said. This, he added, had encouraged private schools.

Speakers at the gathering demanded that the PEF projects be expanded to other parts of the province.
