Physical classes resume once again

Karachi:23 January:Matters will be finalised after consultation with all stakeholders at another meeting of the steering committee to be held on January 30, he said.

The academic plan made last year had to be revised again due to the pandemic, said the minister, adding that although the curriculum was reduced by up to 40 per cent, schools were shut for another two months during the second wave of the contagion.

The 20 per cent discount in fees announced during the lockdown will be revoked now as the lockdown is over now, he said.

The difficulties of private educational institutes were also deliberated upon during the meeting and the demand to provide loans to private, especially small, educational institutions will be put before the Centre, he added.

According to the minister, a census will be conducted of all private educational institutions and the number of students in the province enrolled in these institutes will be counted as well. Besides, the literacy rate at private institutions will be tabulated, he said.

Replying to a question, Ghani said that the problems plaguing his department could not be resolved in a day or two. But steps are being taken to address the issues, he insisted. The process to appoint good officials in the department has been initiated, he added.

In response to another question, the provincial minister maintained that the Sindh Assembly had passed a resolution to revoke the ban on student unions back in 2019, but the Pakistan People’s Party-led Sindh government wants all political parties to agree that they will not use students for their own political purposes.

The steering committee’s meeting was attended by the education department secretary, chairpersons of all Sindh’s boards, the colleges and boards chairperson, experts, and others.

Earlier this month, on campus classes resumed across the province for students of Grade IX to XII after a nearly two-month long suspension due to the second wave of the pandemic. The NCOC is set to resume physical classes for the primary grades as well on February 1 after a review of the situation.The news.
