Criticism of private schools baseless
Karachi: The criticism against private schools by Chairman National Assembly Standing Committee for Education Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali is totally baseless and the fact that he referred to the private schools as a 'mafia' is condemnable.
This was said by Chairman All Private Schools Management Association Sindh (APSMA) Syed Khalid Shah during a press conference held at the Karachi Press Club on Thursday.
Shah said that the language used by Sher Ali against the private schools was not appropriate at all. The statement given by him was seriously noticed by the managements of the private schools, and they condemn it, he added.
Shah said that Ali Sher had criticised the role of the private schools in a television programme. He added that during the television show, Sher Ali had alleged that the private schools receive huge amount in lieu of tuition fees and other charges but pay only Rs1500 or Rs2000 to the teachers. Sher Ali was also of the view that private schools collect fees during the summer vacations but do not pay salaries to the teachers for the two months and take action against those who ask for the salaries, Shah added. Shah said that Sher Ali's claims were baseless, and the private schools in the country are providing standard education.
According to the chairman APSMA, private schools were declared 'mafia' which was a character assassination, Shah said. Shah added that Sher Ali had also demanded that Rs6000 should be the basic salary of the teachers in the private schools, and any school who gives less than Rs6000 should be shut down.
