Sardar Bahadur Khan University Convocation

The literacy rate of Baluchistan is far below the requirement, in the four provinces, Baluchistan is the least developed and least educated. The largest province, in terms of land but least in the priority lists, this province is now under critical spectrum of militancy. That’s why the chances of any special package for development are very rare.

Education is one of the primary reasons for the destabilized situation of the province. Never, in the history, education was priority and the local government also hesitated to promote the importance of education in far flung areas.

The students that are low in number now prefer to migrate towards other provinces for the education needs and the numbers of admissions in the provincial universities are below the average.

The girls from the remote areas are much away from the concept of school education and the biggest challenge of the education in the province is bringing the girls to schools and colleges.

Recently, the Governor of Baluchistan attended the convocation of Sardar Bahadur Khan Women University as chief guest. In his speech, he emphasized on the role of women education in the society and why a society can’t be developed without educating its girls.

He said that Baluchistan government can only achieve the education goals by the promotion of education among women.
He congratulated and encouraged the parents, who are sending their daughters to University. He called the increase in girl’s enrollment as a silent revolution.

He praised the university and said that this university has produced well educated and modern women.  The governor, after the speech, distributed the medal to the toppers and certificates’ to other students.

In the ceremony, the speaker of the Baluchistan Assembly Raheela Durrani, Vice chancellor of SBKWU, VC of Baluchistan University, Dr. Javed Iqbal and large number of participants including teachers, students and government officials took part.

After the address of governor, the VC Rukhsana Jabeen told the participants about the achievements of the university and the future projects on which the university is working.

Two points of the governor’s speech were important: one, his view that government can’t achieve education goals with the girl’s education and second when he quoted the word of modern women during the praise of university.

The acceptance of these realities by such figure of Baluchistan government is encouraging; the need is to practically taking the steps for the girl’s education. The government should use the graduates’ of this university to convince the parents and door to door campaign would be very beneficial.  For the areas under the critical influence of feudal lords, the government role is crucial and local government official must play their role here.

FATA Education Campaign

Under the constitution of Pakistan, education is the basic right of every child from age 5 to 16. The government is responsible for providing quality education with as near as possible. However, like other laws, the compulsory education requirement has never been given the required attention and the development is just restricted to road, bridges and dams. The situation is remote areas can jolt you where the school buildings are just the storage houses and children wander here and there and feudal lords have the complete occupations of their property and lives.

The situation in FATA is just same as other least developed areas and with the ongoing fight against terror, the education sector is also one the victim of time. The families had to flown to other areas after the war and it is third year to their migration. The families have to leave home and with many Childs now it is extremely difficult for them to live at some other place in such financial constraints.

The schools enrollment ration was earlier an issue and the local community was reluctant to send especially girls to schools. Now the infrastructure has been destroyed completely. The government in the centre has launched a nationwide campaign to enroll the out of school to schools and the provincial governments have been taken into the line of action. On the same effort, the newly appointed governor of KPK, Zafar Iqbal Jhagra launched the school enrollment campaign in FATA to ensure the 100 % attendance in schools. The analysts are of the view, that in case, his efforts ensure the enrollment of 100 %, many issues would automatically be resolved. They also say that this enrollment will not help to enlighten the tribal people with the light of education but it’s a golden opportunity to bring them into national mainstream.

The terrorism and extremism is the main problems of the FATA and can be solved with only development and education. The speed at which the people would be brought to national sphere, similarly at such speech the terrorism would be decreased.
The governor’s initiative is welcoming but we have to see that to what’s extent the launch is carried out practically. In many areas, the army is still finding out hideouts of terrorists and the schools infrastructure has been vanished.

The entire stakeholder community must be taken into confidence to solve this issue. It can’t be done, just with the inauguration of launching ceremony. The networks of road, the rebuilding of schools, the hiring and training of teachers and peace and stability are the need to the hour, to stop the areas for being the victim of radicalization again.

Private school’s new strategy

The dilemma here in our country is; people don’t want to obey law and any new law teases them because they are not educated about the importance of law making and its impact on society. In last September, when parents are protesting with suns on their heads and banners on their hands against the final hooliganism of private schools, the government acted and stopped the private schools cum business to cancel the notification of fee hike. The government was working on the issue and now in 2016 at last the law has been devised and passed by the provisional assembly of Punjab, which carries all the details to tackle private school issue.

The private school bodies are not ready to accept this, the representation has been divided as some private schools have made their own body to safeguard their interest (financial most expectedly). The schools were closed on 8th and 9th March 2016 as protests and government showed its intention to negotiate on demands.

The things did not seem clear as the government will not compromise on the clause of “pre-permission” for fee hike which will be maximum 5 %.

Now, both parties have joined hand; All-Pakistan Private Schools Federation (APPSF) and Pakistan Education Council (PEC). In a joined press conference; they took the point in their favor that with such inflation rise in security management it is easy for them to run schools with hurdles as imposed by law.

The representatives argued that rents increase minimum with average of 18 to 20 % and salaries with 15 % ratio. Schools in private sector are providing education to 60 % of population and help government with their efforts.

An interesting fact now comes in media attention that some schools have sent letter to parents in which they alarmed them with the consequences of such law, which is imposed on schools. They conveyed to parents that in case of implementation the schools have to ban all extracurricular activities, they have to increase class size and various facilities will be suspended because of financial pressure.

The schools need the support of parents to pressurize government but the way they are doing by cautioning the parents; it is completely not understandable. As mostly schools are in profit and especially the protest leaders are elite schools where the fee is above 10,000. The sizes of classes are already large. The point, they are arguing that they increase salaries 15% is totally absurd. The teachers are paid much low salaries and their increments are usually stopped in the name of performance and evaluations.

What extracurricular activities they are threatening to close?? Do they have any play ground, where they offer daily physical activity? Mostly schools are working in short area or rented buildings and rely on annual sports day. So which extracurricular activities they will close. Pet day and color day? That is mostly the elite schools luxurious idea.

They know that their strategy of threatening government and parents with two day strike is not working, so they started to work for step 2 of their protest.
