On the opposite hand, teachers of state universities have also announced a protest against the upper Education Commission. The Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) has said that the upper Education Commission of Pakistan has did not address the issues faced by education and academic institutions. Teachers will protest on October 14 in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Protests are going to be held in Sindh and Punjab on October 15, and in Azad Jammu and Kashmir on October 16. then , on October 21, teachers from universities across the country will stage a sit-in ahead of the upper Education Commission in Islamabad. The union, which represents the teachers’ union, has demanded that the deficit facing universities be addressed. The policy on teacher allowances, their placement and promotion should be reviewed. a crucial demand is to finish interference publicly universities. a while ago, the difficulty of reducing the powers of the Vice Chancellors of public universities in Punjab province was discussed. it had been suggested that the top of the university syndicate should be handed over to the Minister of Education or the nominee of the Chief Minister.
It was described by universities as an effort to deprive the vice-chancellor of his powers. Javed Sami, Secretary General of the Punjab University’s Academic Staff Association, says the story is into account once more . He said that this decision has probably been implemented in Sahiwal and Jhang University.
The Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association intends to carry protests and sit-ins to resolve these issues. One wonders why the govt and therefore the concerned agencies allow such a address come when on the one hand the doctors are signaling an extended march rather than treating the patients, while on the opposite hand the teachers are talking about sit-ins and protests rather than teaching students. ۔ Education and health are considered to be vital and sensitive sectors everywhere the planet . In our country, however, no special attention is paid to those areas. there’s no harm in taking the relevant stakeholders into confidence while formulating policy in both these areas.
Another decision of the upper Education Commission regarding education needs the eye of the authorities. We hear that when this matter was into account , the Vice Chancellors of most of the schools had opposed this proposal. Nevertheless, the commission formulated a policy. within the light of this policy, the upper Education Commission has issued an order to abolish the two-year private BA. it’s also directed that no public or private university will offer MA program from next year. it’ll get replaced by a four-year associate program. I had the chance to participate in some meetings and discussions during this regard. After lecture teachers and officials related to education , it became clear that the difficulty remains ambiguous.
It felt clear that this decision was made without proper consultation and planning. Has been consistent with the upper Education Commission, the most purpose of formulating the policy is to market marketable skills among the youth along side general education. The importance of this good purpose. But realistically, achieving this goal requires solid planning and a hefty budget. This noble goal can’t be achieved without teacher training, capacity building, and improving the infrastructure of educational institutions.
For years, we’ve been working to extend the amount of our graduate youth. pleased with this growing number and statistics. we’d like to understand that this number is thanks to the amount of scholars taking private exams. per annum , many candidates across the country take degrees after taking private exams. Where will the many students go if the private BA facility is abolished? Have we taken these millions?
