CAP committee's slow action delays first-year admissions
Karachi: The process of admissions to the first-year classes in the city's government colleges and higher secondary schools has been further delayed as the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) committee did not issue the placement lists of the pre-engineering (female), pre-medical (female), commerce and humanities groups till Thursday.
Meanwhile, the CAP committee's chairman on Thursday issued the placement list of 2500 male candidates admitted to first year pre-medical group in the city's 51 public sector colleges. The placement list pertaining to pre-medical (female) candidates will be issued on Friday, he added.
According to a decision of the Sindh education department steering committee, the process of admissions to the first-year classes in the city's public sector colleges under the CAP was to be accomplished by Sept 4 while the classes of fresh entrants for the academic year 2010-11 was scheduled to begin on Sept 6.
Senior college teachers expressed the fear that if the process of admissions to the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools of the metropolis continued to linger on with such a slow pace, regular classes for the fresh first-year students would not begin even in the first week of October.
The CAP committee which was assigned the task of placing matriculates in the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary schools has so far managed to display the placement lists of just five groups - home economics, computer science, pre-engineering (male) and pre-medical (male) - exclusively on its website.
However, most of the successful candidates belonging to these categories have been facing immense difficulties in acquiring forms of colleges/higher secondary schools as a number of educational institutions have not yet been provided with the copies of the placement lists and, as such, unable to display them for the convenience of admission seekers.
Unlike the previous years when the placement lists of successful candidates used be posted on the CAP website after making proper announcement through media and the copies of the lists used to be provided simultaneously to the institutions concerned, the present CAP committee which seemed to be working in isolation was neither making any public announcement prior to posting placement lists on its website nor issuing any related statistics such as the cut-off marks or number of students accommodated in a particular group to the media.
Since the CAP committee is not making any announcement regarding the placement lists, candidates of even those categories whose placement lists have already been posted exclusively on its website, are still unaware that placement lists of their groups have been issued and up to what date they are required to complete the remaining admission formalities.
SPLA opposes donation 'order'
Karachi: The leaders of the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) have described the education department's regional directors' act of pressurising principals of government colleges to arrange flood relief funds from their students "caution money" and other funds as "unlawful and breach of trust".
In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, the SPLA office-bearers including Prof Ather Hussain Mirza, Prof Hemat Ali Pitafi, Prof Muzaffar Ali Rizvi, said that since the caution money and other funds were considered to be a trust money and was given back to students upon their leaving educational institutions, withdrawal of any amount from the fund not only amounted to breach of trust, but also a grave violation of provincial finance ministry's rules.
The SPLA leaders alleged that when regional directors of education who had asked principals that each college was required to deposit 50,000 in the flood relief fund were asked to show whether they had any written orders in this regard, they replied that they had received verbal instructions from the office of provincial directorate-general (colleges).
The other signatories to the statement are Prof Iftikhar Azmi, Prof Yaqoob Chandio, Prof Shafquat Jokhio and Prof Shamim Bhutto. Dawn

Private schools urged to encourage scouting
Karachi: All private schools should boost scouting along with extra curricular activities as it would help in assisting flood affected people, said All Private Schools Management Association (APSMA) Sindh Chairman Khalid Shah. He was addressing a press conference at the Karachi Press Club on Thursday.
Talking about the current flood situation he said there is a sense of insecurity and unhealthy trends among school going children. "As a nation we are facing the most horrible situation in the history of our country and it is affecting mostly our new generation and casting negative effects on their personality," he said. He said that scouting and introducing other healthy activities can play a very positive role in changing the habits and trends among children. "Our media is highlighting losses of natural disaster, scuffles of politicians, corruption scandals of national heroes and commercials carrying negative messages, particularly advertisements of mobile phone service companies convincing the youth for chatting through the night.
All these situations are creating uncertainty and psychological problems among students," Shah said. He said that many negative changes in the behaviour of students have emerged during the last decade, including the rising trend of using toy guns and pistols among children; therefore introducing constructive activities would help curbing that. Office bearers of APSMA Sindh Arshad Ali Khan, Jameel Athar and others were also present on the occasion. ppi
