Expensive schools in Peshawar | AIOU students problems

Expensive schools
Peshawar, Sep 09: The persistent loadshedding and non-availability of power generators in the high-priced schools, particularly the Beaconhouse and City School systems of the provincial metropolis is a constant source of nuisance for the students studying there and of course their parents, while the administration of the schools is least concerned about the miseries of their students.

Some parents, said that they had lodged countless complaints with the administration of the schools where their children were studying to arrange power generators, but to no avail. They said it was unbearable for their children to remain in the school due to scorching heat.

"Whenever, we complain to the school administration, they assure us that they would soon arrange generator, but none of their assurances could be materialised despite the fact the summer season is about to end," the parents said.

The parents, whose children were studying in Hayatabad branch of Beaconhouse School, said the school administration instead of making alternative arrangements for power supply pushed back the school timing curtailing the study hours of the kids. The school that was earlier closed down at 12.30pm its time has now been pushed to 12 pm. The parents have been informed they could take their kids back to their homes even at 11.45 am, the complainants added.

They were of the opinion the schools were heavily charging the students and were unable to provide generators in the schools even. The normal fee of each of the schools varies from Rs3,500 to 5,000 per student per month, while their yearly charges run from Rs25,000 to 50,000. The schools are also defiant to abide by the rules set by the provincial government regarding fee structure, brother fee concession and other directives. The parent demanded of the government to have a check on the schools and force them to provide necessary facilities to the students.

AIOU female students facing host of problems
Mardan: Female students of Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) Primary Teaching Certificate (PTC) course and Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) in Mardan tehsil are facing numerous problems in handing over their home assignments to their tutors, sources said.

There are total 2,100 female students out of which 1,800 are doing PTC course and 300 enrolled for B.Ed programme. 120 female tutors for PTC and 20 for B.Ed programmes are available in total.

Syed Wajid Ali Shah, a local representative of AIOU, has tried his best to hire competent and easily accessible female tutors in Mardan tehsil, but things were made complicated when students were randomly distributed between these tutors by the AIOU Islamabad's main office.

As Mardan is a big tehsil spread over a large area, the students and their tutors were mostly living far away from each other making their mutual contact difficult if not impossible. It may be reminded that AIOU's male and female students prepare their assignments in homes and later hand them over to their respective teachers for marking. It's mandatory for each student to get at least 40 per cent marks in these home assignments.

The AIOU also organises tutorial meetings with their pre-announced schedules and for this purpose some tutorial centres are also notified to facilitate their mutual contacts. Scores of female students or their relatives are seen wandering around these AIOU centres on the prescribed dates. There are no seating arrangements for the male attendants with the female students so they have to stand outside to bear the scorching heat in the open.

Relatives of some of the female students complained their dear ones were unable to handover their assignments either because the names of the tutors were communicated late to them or their addresses were incomplete.

Ajmal, the father of one of the female students, standing outside the Government High School Baghdada, a tutorial centre, said that problems arose also because some tutors had made it a habit of absenting themselves from tutorial meetings which was otherwise the easiest way to get in touch with tutors.
