Opinions/ Editorials

 

Study On Teachers

The Voice of Teachers, a study conducted by the Society for the Advancement of Education (SAHE) in partnership with Alif Ailaan, offers useful insights on the subject of education, with a special focus on school teachers employed in government and private institutions. The study serves to reaffirm the view that there is plenty to be done on the education front. The sense of emergency, that ought to be seen in a country with rampant illiteracy and unemployment, is not visible. While teaching, as a profession, commands considerable respect in most communities within Pakistan, not much is done for the development and improvement of teachers. Lack of training and facilities, and the burden of non-teaching duties, prevents them from meeting reasonable standards. The government shouldn’t be looking inside classrooms to carry out such duties. Surely, it can recruit from elsewhere. This is especially true for primary school teachers, who interact with students during the early years of schooling, which makes it all the more troublesome. How children are introduced to an educational environment has quite a role to play in their subsequent approach towards studies.

The literacy imperative by Hassan Amir

A little over a year ago, there was a big hullabaloo about a foreign group investing billions in Pakistan and dizzying talk about erecting the world’s tallest tower in Karachi which was supposed to promise employment opportunity for 2.5 million people. Then the group backed out and was replaced by a Miami-based developer wanting to inject another few billions into elite island communities off the coast of Karachi. That it all petered out even before the ink was dry on the MoUs is not the point. The question to be asked is that had these mega projects been built, could they have been maintained by an illiterate and primarily untrained work force?

The HEC: turning ‘scholars’ into ‘slaves’ by Shaheen Ashraf Shah

My experience with several international scholarship donors suggests that they make every effort to facilitate scholars during their study, and pay special attention to specific circumstances of individual students. Apart from providing financial resources, what is also important is the scholar’s peace of mind and a conducive environment. The HEC needs to treat scholars as its ambassadors and stop penalising them unnecessarily. Otherwise, scholars may find it difficult to play any post-PhD role or feel any pride in representing the HEC.

Madrassa reforms by Saad Rasool

A perusal of the history of Islamic civilization bears testament to a time when educational systems across the Muslim world, the ‘madrassas’, were unchallenged cathedrals of religious and scientific advancement. We are told of a time, at the turn of the eleventh century, when Muslim, Christian, Jewish, and even atheist scholars from the farthest corners of the world would brave harshness of the desert and perilous months long travel to flock to Isfahan and learn from Ibn Sina himself at the leading madrassa of the time. Here under the tutelage of the great Ibn Sina, they would study mathematics, medicine, and astronomy in addition to the study of religion and theology. Within the corridors of this great Islamic madrassa, the first human surgery was conducted, even at the time when it was banned by orthodox religion.

Quality education or bust by Syed Bakhtiyar Kazmi

The plan for this week was to write about the forthcoming demonstration at the end of the month and the government’s very recent and intrepid response thereto. I even thought up the title, ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me’. However, as is the case with all manmade plans, a disturbing comment at a networking gathering changed all that: “One out of every three children not in school on this globe is a Pakistani.” On the lighter side of the phrase, this brings to mind a joke from a television sitcom where, upon the expected birth of a fifth sibling, a child suggests a Chinese name with the logic that every fifth person in the world is Chinese. On a serious note, however, the statement has sinister connotations.

Letter to the editor

 

Students welfare funds       

VARIOUS public and private sector universities collect a handsome amount from students under the account of students welfare fund every year. The amount so collected, along with the fees, is estimated to be in the millions. But how and where this amount is spent by the university management has become debatable.

Sindh’s ghost schools

It is a well-known fact that hundreds of ghost schools exist in Sindh. These are premises or structures set aside for education, but which, have over the years, been converted into cattle pens or guest rooms by landlords in the province. The situation is so bad that according to official figures, around 5,600 such ‘ghost’ schools exist in the province. The Millennium Development Goals target of universal primary education by 2015 is obviously not going to be reached, least of all in Sindh.
