Unavailability of textbooks irks students of Rawalpindi & Islamabad
ISLAMABAD, Sep 2: Students of Rawalpindi and Islamabad are facing
difficulties due to unavailability of new textbooks of the Federal Board
(Class-9) in the markets. Teachers have started forcing students to bring
textbooks from their own sources.
It was announced that the schools would
provide textbooks to its students but students, are still waiting for the books
as they have not been published so far.
Owners of old bookshops have
doubled the prices of second hand textbooks, as they are not available in the
market. Students alleged that taking advantage of the situation, teachers were
forcing the shopkeepers to sell books at double the rate. Shopkeepers and
wholesale dealers are also facing losses due to the shortage of textbooks in the
market. The shopkeepers and wholesaler dealers said it was not a serious problem
and added that a wrong policy formulated by the Education Ministry was the only
reason for the shortage of textbooks. Daily times
