Education ministry forms inspection committee for private schools
Karachi: The provincial education and literacy department has constituted a 16-member inspection committee to check fees structure at the private schools and ensure that the Sindhi Language is being taught.

According to an official notification issued by the department, the committee, headed by the advisor to the Sindh chief minister, Rashid Rabbani, will submit their recommendations on the fees structure in private schools within 30 days.

The committee will inspect private schools and check their fees structure, particularly because of the high increase in fees witnessed recently. The committee will also ensure that the Sindhi Language is being taught as per the law at private institutions and will submit a report for each school they visit.

The department has warned that those members who do not participate in these consecutive visits risk being excluded.

The members of the committee are the advisor to the Sindh chief minister, Muhammad Ismail Dahiri, Special Assistant to the CM Waqar Mehdi, MPAs Dr Salim Hingoro, Humera Alwani, Farzana Hanif Baloch, and others, Dr Mirza Ikhtiar Baig, Saeed Ghani, Pir Abdul Rasheed, Shaukat Ali Shah, Khalil Qureshi, Suhail Ansari, Lal Bux Bhutto, Najmi Alam and Salman Abdullah Murad. The director of a private institution, Mansoob Hussain Siddiqui, will act as secretary of the committee.

Private Schools Management Association (PSMA) Chairman Sharafuz Zaman said that the Private Institutions Regularization Act of 2001, amended in 2003 and 2005 discusses fees structure. It allows the constitution of a six-member inspection committee, for which 2 members will be from the private schools' association, 2 from the directorate of private institutions and 2 from civil society. It is beyond any reasoning why political persons have been taken into the committee, as they do not have any role to play. As far as fees are concerned, every private school is legally bound to approach Directorate of private Institutions for final approval.

The management of private schools will not stop any member of the committee from entering their premises but it should be made clear that if any hurdle is created, then all private schools will be shut down, warned Zaman.

The ministry of education should have constituted a committee for public schools to see why students are not provided free books and essential facilities such as potable water, lavatory facility and playground, commented Zaman.

The PSMA is concerned about the formation of a private schools inspection committee because its legal role is not defined in the Private Institutions Regularization Act of 2001. Private schools have contributed much to the promotion of education, added Zaman.

Neither can the committee issue directives to private schools as per the law nor will private schools approach the committee seeking approval for an increase in fees because this matter is legally fixed by private schools and the directorate of private institutions, argued Zaman. Daily Times

Most of private schools without playgrounds
Lahore: It is believed that sports play an important role in the overall character building and personality development of children but it is a bitter reality that the majority of private and public schools lack playgrounds, which affects students' physical and mental fitness.

The condition of public schools is somewhat better than private schools as their campuses are built on a vast piece of land unlike private schools operating in small buildings or even houses. There are some private schools that offer playgrounds and sports which public schools cannot afford.

Sadly, indoor games are uncommon in schools owing to which students seldom find opportunities to spare time for sports.

By and large, there is a lack of playgrounds in the provincial metropolis which compels children to play in streets or on roads. The paucity of play areas and fewer sports opportunities encourage children to rely on computer games. The tendency to play computer games among children has been on the rise over the years.

Academic circles believe that sports and games play a significant role in character building. They say that students learn the significance of teamwork, commitment to a job, sense of responsibility and a spirit of tolerance and forbearance by taking part in sports.

They argue that one of the major reasons for students' inclination to playing computer games and internet surfing was a lack of sports facilities available to them. They are also very critical of private schools, saying the commercialisation of education had turned it from a divine mission into a business.

Faisal, a concerned citizen, said it was unfortunate that the majority of private schools did not care about students' basic needs but charged handsome fees. He said private schools operated in one or two-room buildings, adding offering playgrounds to students was a huge challenge for such schools. He said in the absence of any sports-related activities, students were compelled to find alternatives.

Nasir, a government schoolteacher, said majority of government schools were housed in big buildings and had playgrounds for students unlike private schools. "The infrastructure of government schools, however, is going to waste as they do not organise sports activities on a regular basis," he said. He said the condition of education institutions for girls was even worse as they did not at all encourage students to participate in sports.

Another teacher said that at a time when most of public schools in the province were without basic facilities, the issue of sports was not important. "For me the provision of missing facilities such as electricity, toilets and boundary walls is more important than providing students with playgrounds," he remarked.

Commenting on the issue, Schools Education Department Secretary Nadeem Ashraf said sports at school had been pushed into the background over the years. He said the government was devising a strategy to promote sports at schools. The News
