FR Peshawar’s girls schools see fewer students, teachers

A majority of girls schools in Hassan Khel have only been partially functional over the last two years in the absence of teaching staff, residents told The Express Tribune. Most women are reluctant—even fearful—to go teach classes even though they are residents of the area. This has adversely affected student attendance and academic activities at schools. “In one middle school for girls, the number of students has dropped to just 190. There were initially 350 students at the school,” a local elder told The Express Tribune. “I don’t know about any school in Hassan Khel where teachers are reluctant to come to work,” said FR Peshawar assistant political agent (APA) Muhammad Arif. “However, if we receive any complaints, we will ensure action is taken against teachers.”

Handover of college to Gujrat varsity opposed

Teachers in Rawalpindi have opposed the Punjab government’s decision of elevating the Post Graduate College for Women (PGCW), Satellite Town, to a sub-campus of the University of Gujrat (UOG). They say the college has been working well under the Punjab government and must not be handed over to UoG, which is an autonomous body. Punjab Professors Lectures Association Rawalpindi Chapter President Liaqat Abbasi said it would be an unwise move to hand over the college to the varsity. He said the university will implement its own fee structure, which is much higher than the nominal charges students currently pay, and that its women-only status will go away once it goes to the university.

Universal primary enrolment: As deadline looms, capital may miss targets

As the deadline draws closer, it seems that the government might not be able to achieve its universal primary education related millennium development goals (MDG) of attaining 100 per cent enrolment in at least the federal capital schools. Though the enrolment rate for primary education has steadily increased over the years, the federal capital still lags behind its goal. Education authorities hoped to achieve a 100 per cent gross enrolment rate (GER) for primary education, but with 2015 just round the corner, enrolment has only reached 85.9 per cent, says a report. The report cites different reasons for the capital’s failure to reach the goal, including poverty, law and order, weak governance and natural disasters that are making it difficult for the government to reach its MDGs.

Pakistan’s youngest Nobel laureate loves Physics. However, at a public school named after Malala Yousufzai in Saddar, the class six students only know 30% of their science and 13% of their math curriculum. In 2013, Sindh Education department’s reform support unit, in collaboration with the Institute of Business Administration in Sukkur, had conducted large-scale Standardised Achievement Tests based on the national curriculum in all 23 Sindh districts to gauge the students’ learning outcomes in math, science and languages prior to class six. Unfortunately, the attention Malala has received will not be enough to shame Pakistani leaders into doing more for education said by Alif Ailaan campaign director Mosharraf Zaidi.
