Future of students at stake, as fees not released

Rawalpindi

The future of scholarship-holder students is at stake, as the Punjab government has not been paying their fees for over a year while the concerned colleges and universities have issued notices to them to quit the institutions.

In Rawalpindi division, the concerned colleges and universities have issued notices to 188 students because of non-payment of fees for more than two years.

Talking to ‘The News’ students studying in different colleges and universities falling in Rawalpindi division including Islamic University, Muhammad Ali Jinnah University, Preston University, COMSAT etc. told ‘The News’ that they are facing humiliation at the hands of the managements of the respective institutions because the government did not pay our dues for more than one year.

“We are seeing our future dark because institutions have warned us to stop studying if the government further delayed payment of dues,” they said. Workers Welfare Board Punjab (Member) and Mazdoor Union CBA General Secretary Syed Sajjad Gardezi said that thousands of intelligent students’ future is at stake because the government not pay fees to the concerned colleges and universities for more than one year. He said that the Punjab government is referring us to the federal government while the later is referring us to the Punjab government but nobody is serious in resolving this matter.

“Some of the educational institutions have issued f

inal notices to 188 students in the Rawalpindi division for discontinuation of their further studies,” he said. He said that they met concerned officials to help resolve the matter on priority but nobody is listening to us.

When ‘The News’ contacted Muhammad Ali Jinnah University, Islamabad Controller of Examination Saqib Naveed, he admitting all facts said that the government is not paying us fees of students. “There is a fee balance of Rs35 million of Muhammad Ali Jinnah University, Islamabad, which the government has not paid yet,” he said.

Similarly, the government is not paying to several other universities, he said. “Today I am going to meet secretary Punjab board for release of the funds else we would take further line of action,” he said.

When ‘The News’ contacted Workers Welfare Board Punjab’s Secretary Tariq Javed Malik he admitted delay in release of funds. He said that they are continuously paying money but facing delay in releasing funds due to some necessary formalities in between the Punjab and the federal governments.

“I have forwarded the case to Islamabad and after necessary formalities we would release fees of the students adding it takes time to complete the whole process,” he said. He said that they had released Rs500 million to scholarship holder students this year. “We would protect the future of all students and nobody would rusticate them from any institution,” he assured.(The News)

Private schools commission welcomed

THE recent initiative of the Punjab government to seek input of students, their parents and teachers for the establishment of the proposed education commission is being termed a step in the right direction. The commission will have a mandate to regulate unbridled working of private educational institutions.

The initiative also shows seriousness of the Punjab government to address the longstanding demand of the stakeholders who over the years have been demanding an independent body for regulating the affairs of private schools, especially to tap their fee structure.

According to the Punjab government’s advertisements, the government plans to set up the Education Commission to protect the rights of students, their parents and teachers of private schools.

The commission will also take action against private schools on complaints. The government also plans to empower the commission to direct the private sector institutions to fix a quota for the poor but talented students under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) concept.

Over the years, the ever-increasing fees together with heavy registration and admission charges, compulsory purchase of stationery items and uniforms from prescribed shops in the private sector have been some of the major concerns of students and their parents. On the other hand, the unchecked working of private schools led to their mushroom growth in absence of any accountability which also affect quality education.

Similarly, exploitation of teachers by private schools in absence of proper service structure and their low salaries vis-à-vis workload assigned to them is also an open secret.

The recent move is certainly belated as the PML-N government, coming into power in Punjab in 2008, had announced setting up the regulatory body for private schools. But since “better late than never”, the stakeholders are still excited and all praise for the government and hope to see the body functional before the general elections.

According to Punjab School Education Department Secretary Muhammad Aslam Kamboh, the government would introduce necessary legislation after the completion of the process of consultation. He said a Cabinet Committee had been formed in this regard, adding that the government would receive suggestions from the stakeholders till February 10, 2012.

The department’s Deputy Director (Monitoring) Rana Abdul Qayyum, the focal person dealing with public feedback, said the move had received good response from the stakeholders. He said that so far, he had received around 800 emails from the stakeholders besides hundreds of phone calls and letters.

It is pertinent to mention here that the stakeholders can send their suggestions to the government at ddm@schools.punjab.gov.pk

Illiterate students portray dismissal picture of our education system

Illiterate students portray dismissal picture of our education system

Everyone acknowledges that our educational situation is a miserable one, particularly the public sector institutions, with official figures still putting the overall literacy rate at under 60 per cent in the country.

Unfortunately, this is radically lower in some parts of the country, with vast regional differences pioneering their own set of issues.

A fresh survey states that even children who do go to school, in a significant number of cases, remain unable to read or perform basic mathematical works.Simply they are emerging illiterate from uneducated the institutions they go to.

A survey-based Annual Status of Education Report 2011, prepared by the South Asia Forum for Education Development, ascertained that our education system stood at a critical stage.

It found that on only 41.8 per cent of children between the ages of 5-16 can read a sentence in Urdu or their regional languages. Furthermore, merely 25.8 per cent of those assessed children are able to read a sentence in English, which reveals the entire story.

The situation at ground is messier what we are thinking, as even at class five levels, 52.6 per cent of children fail to read class two level stories in Urdu or their mother tongues. It is vital to note here that a total of 146,874 children in 2,502 villages and 97 urban blocks were covered by the survey.

The children calculation was even more terrible as 40.1 per cent children could solve two-digit totaling sums, while only 23.6 per cent children could do three-digit separation arithmetic.

Despite the fact Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani declared 2011 as the year of education in Pakistan, nothing noteworthy happened in the education part.

Shocking as the findings are, they do not come across as a major disclosure. ‘Literacy’ has long been evaluated by the aptitude to write ones name — a largely worthless exercise.

At the same time,  volunteers who work at government schools report an alarming number of children who basically cannot read even after five years or more of schooling.

Additionally, the finding identifies teacher malingering as a major problem, it is also true that teaching methods are reasons behind this.

The trend of rote-learning means that there is no clutch of the actual means to read, while syllabus devise at the primary level is so outdated that children have problems moving from one stage of reading to the other.

The situation is being further deteriorated due to inadequate teacher training and poor motivation. The need of the hour is to address the problem at the earliest without attempting to turn away from it.(The News)

Pakistan secures WFME membership

Islamabad

World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) has granted membership to Pakistan Medical and Dental Council in recognition of its being a distinguished medical and dental regulatory body in the region.

WFME issued its membership to the council hoping that Pakistani medical and dental regulator will help play a key role in the strengthening of medical education in the Eastern Mediterranean region, according to a statement issued here.

WFME is the global organisation takes care of education and training of medical doctors with a mission to strive for better healthcare for people and enhance the quality of medical education worldwide with promotion of the highest scientific and ethical standards in medical education.

PMDC Registrar Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar has been made member of WFME Regional Executive Committee. Of late, the registrar PMDC was placed at the top of the list of speakers and modulators of the International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities.

To mark the award of WFME membership to PMDC, a function was organised at the Cabinet Secretariat on Friday where Cabinet Secretary Nargis Sethi presented a shield to Dr Akbar.

The secretary said Pakistani doctors were the pride of the nation and that PMDC should take encouragement from WFME membership and other international achievements and continue providing maximum opportunities of excellence and employment to medical and dental professionals.

Dr Akbar welcomed WFME membership and said health professionals and regulatory bodies from Pakistan and abroad had appreciated the PMDC role in regulating the country’s medical and dental sector.

“This great achievement will help Pakistani doctors get better job opportunities and do post-graduation abroad especially after the US and UK governments recently made it mandatory for all regulatory bodies to be WFME members to maintain eligibility of their doctors for license of practice examinations or postgraduate studies for these countries.

Meanwhile, PMDC has announced its National Examination Board (NEB) examination results. According to it, 429 of the 1,297 foreign medical and dental graduates remained successful in the theory examination. The exam was held on January 8 this year to check professional competency of foreign medical and dental degree holders.

Now, the successful candidates will appear in the PMDC-NEB clinical theory examination to be held in March. The results are posted on the official PMDC website.(The News)
