PEF’s broke partner schools dread new semester

Fri, 08/04/2017 - 12:23
LAHORE:04 August: Partners of the Punjab government’s much-touted public-private partnership school programmes, under the Punjab Education Foundation (PEF), are in a fix because they have not been paid their full budget for the past three months. The timing is all the more crucial as schools are about to open across the province. The PEF provides financial and other assistance to its partners, which are private schools and NGOs. They in turn provide free education to children. The programme provides a monthly fee for each student, admitted under the programme, to private schools. K-P to ‘standardise’ education in 402 public schools Advertisement The Punjab government, calling the initiative a success, has recently announced to expand it further. The PEF, through its partners, outsources these public schools to its partners, who observers say, have been underperforming. The partners, on the other hand, say they are financially stressed and worried as they have not been paid for several months. After a warning by its private partners, the foundation released half of the due payments to partner schools across the province. However, the schools say only 50% of the money does not cover their expenses as they have to pay teachers and cover other costs. Public and private schools across the province will open from August 15 after summer vacations. Talking to The Express Tribune, a PEF partner school official, requesting anonymity, said the government should take note of these circumstances as there are no fees charged from students. “We are totally dependent on the partnership programme’s funding. Because of the delay, we are unable to make payments to our staff and are also behind on our utility bills.” Govt considering ‘smart boards’ at public schools He said that PEF partners announced a protest which was called off because of half of the payments were made and an assurance was given that the remainder would be transferred soon. He said, however, that the remaining payment was still pending and the schools were still waiting for the other half. “The month has ended and another payment is now also due, while the schools will have to be opened this month.” When contacted, PEF Managing Director Tariq Mahmood confirmed to The Express Tribune that half of the payments had been made and the other half would be released soon. Giving reasons for the delay, he said, “50% was made because we have not received our budget”.Published in The Express Tribune, August 4th, 2017.City: Lahore

Rawalpindi:August 4: ‘Madar-e-Millat’ Fatimah Jinnah not only played a leading role in Pakistan Movement by supporting her brother Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah but also played a pioneering role in the movement for revival of parliamentary democracy in Pakistan. This was stated by the leader of the House in Senate of Pakistan, Raja Muhammad Zafar-ul-Haq in his presidential address at a Seminar organised by Quaid-e-Azam Thinker Forum of Anjuman Faizul Islam, Rawalpindi. He said that the ideology of Pakistan should interrelated in the light of the sayings of the pioneers of Pakistan Movement to enable the young generation play due role in national integration. Earlier the President of Anjuman Faizul Islam Rawalpindi in his welcome address said that the Anjuman which had the unique honour of initiating its welfare activities at the behest of Quaid-e-Azam in 1943 has since been playing a purposeful role in national reconstruction and national integration by providing shelter, necessities of life and educational facilities to orphans and destitute children from all regions of Pakistan and by rehabilitating them in the society as useful citizens, practicing Muslims, patriotic Pakistanis and moderate human beings. The speakers of the seminar paid rich tributes to Mader-e-Millat for her commitment to national cause and democratic system. Prof. Dr Riaz Ahmed, a research scholar and author of a number of books on the Quaid-e-Azam and Mader-e-Millat said the Mader-e-Millat accepted to become a presidential candidate only to lead the movement for revival of Parliamentary democracy in Pakistan. Dr. Shoaib Malik, Chairman, Pakistan Studies, National University of Modern Language, Islamabad, said that Mohtarma Fatimah Jinnah is a role model for selfless service, integrity and commitment.

Prof. Syed Umer Hayat, Director, National Institute of Historical and Cultural Research, Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad, said that people should follow the footsteps of Madar-e-Millat by promoting democratic thinking and mutual understanding on the basis of equality and Islamic social justice. The consensus of the seminar was that Pakistan came into existence as a results of united struggle of the Muslims of all regions of South Asian Sub-Continent under the dynamic leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on the basis of a unique ideology. It was, therefore necessary to interpret this ideology in its true perspective, particularly in light of sayings of the Quaid-e-Azam and the solidarity and integration of Pakistan be maintained on its basis while planning to transform the country into an Islamic welfare state as envisaged by the pioneers of Pakistan Movement.The news.City: Rawalpindi

Wed, 08/02/2017 - 12:30
FAISALABAD :02 August:At least nine students of the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (UAF), who were expelled on charges of criticising the university administration and putting up ‘critical posts’ on social media, were allowed to continue studies after the vice-chancellor accepted their appeals. Those expelled included Sehrish Amin, Waqas Zia, Awais Shabbir, Muhammad Awais Ali Khan, Arabaz Hasan, Umar Bilal, Muhammad Isfandyar Javed, Ghulam Jelani and Zubair Iqbal. UAF – serving as a ray of hope for country’s agricultural woes While speaking to The Express Tribune, UAF Registrar Chaudhry Muhammad Hussain said, “The students were involved in spreading undesirable comments and remarks on social media against the university administration.” He added, “They were also involved in misleading the students’ community and in damaging the repute and bringing a bad name to the university.” He claimed all nine students were expelled after a brief inquiry in accordance with Clause IV of the Students Regulation 1978. However, the registrar maintained the students submitted appeals to the university administration to review its decision and restore them. “The VC reversed the decision of expulsion of the students and notification to this effect was issued immediately,” he pointed out. He said the decision was taken on the appeals and unconditional apology which was tendered by the parents and guardians of the appellants. “The vice-chancellor, exercising his powers under the university rules, decided to suspend major and minor penalties imposed upon the students on June 23, 2017,” he elaborated. He said the students will be allowed to enter the university premises and sit in exams. Muhammad Hussain mentioned the restored students had been asked to refrain from such activities and maintain good conduct and discipline during their remaining study period at the university. “An undertaking or affidavit, duly signed by them and their parents/guardian, has already been submitted to students’ office director,” he said. The UAF registrar remarked, “If these students were found involved in misconduct and violating the university rules then the suspended penalty will be re-imposed in addition to fresh penalties.” He said the results and certificates will also be cancelled by the UAF administration. When contacted, UAF Vice-Chancellor Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan told The Express Tribune, “No doubt, I have accepted their appeals and reversed the decision of the disciplinary commission relating to the expulsion but the same has been passed with certain conditions.” He said, “The punishment has been held in abeyance and all such students would remain under monitoring as well as on probation for the rest of their study period in the university.” He added, “We have taken guarantee and undertaking from their parents and guardians, who would be responsible to ensure their children would not involve in any activity that is against the interests and discipline of the UAF”. ‘Expelling students is against freedom of expression’ “I have given a clear cut limit while accepting the appeals of the restored students and they are bound to abide the same. I made it clear to the students and their parents that whoever is found crossing the limits will be expelled from the campus and their degrees would also be cancelled,” the VC warned. “I have observed that when parents take responsibility of their children, they focus on their studies and academic activities,” he added. Earlier on June 19, 2017, more than a dozen people were injured when security staff deputed at the university clashed with the journalists, who were covering the protest of the expelled students. After the incident, journalists continued protests for three more days and a case was registered against the UAF officials and security guards.Published in The Express Tribune, August 2nd, 2017.City: FaisalabadUniversity in FaisalabadAgriculture University Faisalabad
