Groundbreaking study on teachers launched by Alif Ailaan Teachers in Pakistan,

Especially government school teachers, are often blamed for virtually everything that is wrong with the country’s education system. In fact we know very little about ordinary Pakistani teachers, the challenges they face and the support they need to jo their jobs properly. A new study launched today by the education campaign Alif Ailaan aims to change that. The Voice of Teachers, a groundbreaking study of Pakistani teachers, talks to the men and women who are charged with the task of educating this country’s children, often under the most difficult circumstances. Conducted by the Society for the Advancement of Education (SAHE), in partnership with Alif Ailaan, the study is based on an extensive survey of more than 1,250 teachers and head teachers in government and private schools across the country.

`Universal Children`s Day a reminder to ensure their well-being`

Shah Bibi is seven years old. Her father once worked as a painter but now his kidneys are failing and he can no longer work. Shah Bibi comes from a home drowned in financial woes but that does not stop her from coming on top in every exam she takes at school. Her school, Mashal Model School in Bari Imam, offers free education to disadvantaged children in the capital. On Thursday, hundreds of children at Mashal Model School participated in celebrating the 25th anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), organised in collaboration with a non-governmental organisation, Right to Play (RTP) Pakistan. `Universal Children`s Day on November 20 is not only a celebration of having an international treaty to endorse children rights but a reminder for all of us that children are our future and we need to do everything possible to ensure their well being,` said Iqbal Jatoi, Country Manager RTP. `My school gives me free books, uniform and sometimes lunch as well. I always get the first position, and also get prizes from the school management,` she said.

Bare Pyar se Samjahien: Drive to end corporal punishment launched

A national campaign to end violence against children was kicked-off here on Thursday.

The launching ceremony of the drive, ‘‘Bare Pyar se Samjahien’, a joint initiative of the Ministry of Law and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF),was held at a local hotel to mark the Universal Children’s Day. The three-month campaign aims at reaching out to millions of people across the country through various mediums, incorporating messages on adverse effects of corporal punishment. The programme was part of the celebration of 25 years of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Pakistan is also one of the signatories but lags far behind in fulfilling its obligations. Talking to The Express Tribune, an official of the law ministry on condition of anonymity revealed that though during the past 25 years a few child protection laws have been made but have not been as effective in controlling violence against children. “Pakistan lacks the budget allocation for the implementation of many laws effectively,” he said.

Village school: Untold story of times bygone

The story of village school in Punjab that existed in the first two decades after independence may sound like a piece of fiction born of a mind obsessed with the past; past that has no contemporary relevance and thus offers nothing to our young generation. The story needs to be narrated precisely for the reason that it has no relevance to the school being run these days by the government in rural areas. During 1950s a primary school used to be equidistant from two villages in Vehari, the then one of the most backward sub-divisions of Multan district in South Punjab. The school was spread over more than two acres. It had a mud boundary wall with two gates in the middle. Three mud rooms served as classrooms. Theopen space was neatly divided into assembly ground, playground and two types of sitting areas for students; one for the summer season with lot of shady trees and the other for the winter that allowed sun all the day. The compound had two wide brick-lined paths that formed a cross. Along the paths one could see riot of colours throughout the year as the carefully marked and nurtured flowerbeds gave you a sense of being in a sort of garden.

Let down, again: Teachers perturbed by new law

The Sindh government has yet again perturbed academia by enacting a second successive bill for the regulation of the government universities, which is being considered ill-disposed to the academic growth of institutions. The Sindh Universities and Institutes Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2014, has further curtailed the academic oversight and has supplanted it with more bureaucratic control, the teachers argue. “It is just another controversial bill passed without any consultation with the stakeholders,” remarked Dr Azhar Ali Shah, the vice-president of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUSASA). “The only obvious purpose seems to be to give more authority to the bureaucracy over the varsities.”

‘With 83pc graduate teachers,Sindh still lags behind in education’

Even though 83 percent of government teachers in Sindh have at least a bachelor’s degree, the province keeps lagging far behind in education. This is because the teachers are also stuck in a system that does not provide them with any institutional support to do their jobs. This was revealed in a report titled ‘The voice of teachers’ released on Thursday by Alif Ailaan in collaboration with the Society for the Advancement of Education. More than 1,200 teachers from 15 districts of the country were interviewed and observed in their schools for gauging the issues they face and the factors affecting their performance. The study concluded that poor learning was a result of systemic failures rather than the issue of teacher absenteeism. It stated that government policies focused on a minority of teachers who shirked work, and ignored the real issues faced by those who were dedicated but did not have the required capacity to bring better learning outcomes from their students.

 Facebook revolution

There is a lesson to be learned from the Facebook campaign against ghost teachers that has created a much-needed stir in Sindh’s education department. Names of teachers who are enrolled with the education department, but are not showing up to work have been published on the campaign’s Facebook page, along with their photographs, by the residents of these areas. These profiles end up being shared and cross-shared so many times, that in no time, the teachers get to know that they have been caught. The power of social media is finally being utilised for a good, meaningful cause. Students who are fed up with their teachers’ absence have taken the matter in their own hands and are now able to shame them into doing their jobs.

Another important issue that this campaign has highlighted is how a large number of journalists, politicians and other prominent personalities have been exposed as ghost teachers. By exposing these prominent names, especially those of journalists, this campaign has ensured its effectiveness.
