Chitralis demand for separate education board

Chitralis seek separate education board
Chitral, Sept 03: The academic circles have demanded separate board of intermediate and secondary education (BISE) for the district.

On Wednesday, they said that Chitral qualified to have a separate education board due to its peculiar geographical position and increasing number of candidates.

Residents said that the district remained cut off from rest of the country for five months a year in winter when admission forms were submitted to the BISE Peshawar. They said that both regular and private students faced tremendous hardships and many students missed their enrolment when flights, the only source of communication in winter, remained cancelled.

Presently, they said, Chitral was affiliated with the BISE Peshawar which was the largest board in the NWFP and establishment of a new board would lessen its working load apart from providing relief to the people of Chitral.

A retired college principal said that the number of students in Chitral had multiplied over the years. Currently the strength of candidates in matriculation examination had reached 15,000 in the district.

He said that it was not possible to completely weed out corruption and malpractices in examinations without the establishment of the BISE in Chitral. The academician contended that Chitral was sparsely populated district encompassing an area of 14,850 square kilometres. Only a Chitral-based authority could fairly conduct examinations and solve academic problems.

Locals said that a separate board would be an authority to regulate schools and colleges in the private sector. They sought upgradation of education standards at primary, secondary and intermediate levels in Chitral.

They said that enrolment rate in primary schools throughout the district stood at about 100 per cent which meant rapidly increasing number of candidates for secondary and higher secondary examinations. Local chapter of the Sarhad College Teachers Association has already passed a unanimous resolution for the establishment of a separate board in Chitral.

"The regularization of contract employees is totally against the merit. The PSC should be abolished now to save the govt. money and time. The fresh candidates will now wait for 5 years for a lecturer job. The decision has been made by vacant minded persions bcz a sound person can not do so. It will be worst decision in the history of NWFP. "

Teachers threaten to boycott classes
Peshawar: To press the university administration for acceptance of their demands, the teachers of Institute of Business and Management Sciences, NWFP Agricultural University, Wednesday staged a protest demonstration and threatened to boycott classes if they were not given their rights.

The protesters were demanding service structure, regularisation of service, autonomous status to the institute and allowances and hike in salary like other teachers of the university. Holding banners and placards, the protesters marched through various departments of the university and gathered at the main lawn, where a protest gathering was held.

The speakers alleged that the university administration had started victimising them after they moved court for rights. The employees said they were deprived of 15 per cent ad hoc relief announced by the government despite the fact the administration had informed the inspection team of the Peshawar High Court in writing that the ad hoc relief had been provided to the IBMS teachers. They said the university administration had committed contempt of court by providing wrong information to the honourable court.

The speakers also criticised the alleged harassment of some of the faculty members by the university administration and warned that such steps should be stopped forthwith otherwise they would go on a complete strike. The protesters also condemned the abolishment of BIT Programme and said it was a continuation of the revengeful activities of the varsity.

The speakers declared if the university administration did not accept their genuine demands they would start boycott of one class a day till Eid and after Eid they would start complete strike. The news
