DJ college's geology dept gone
Karachi: Due to shortage of teachers, many departments of government colleges are being shutdown. The recent example is the Geology Department of DJ Science College, that was closed six months back after the retirement of its lone teacher, said Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) spokesman Prof Iftikhar Azmi here on Monday.
He said the provincial education department is not giving due consideration to the problems of colleges in Sindh and not only colleges, teachers are facing immense problems, putting thousands of students at stake. He said government colleges in Sindh face acute shortage of teachers, especially in humanitarian sciences. Many departments in government colleges have already been closed due to this severe shortage.
He told PPI that thousands of college teachers await promotions from BPS-17 to BPS-18, and BPS-8 to BPS-19 but the bureaucracy is sitting over their cases. "Corruption and mismanagement has marred college education in the province, including Karachi, but the government is not ready to solve the lingering issues of college-teacher community, raising anger and unrest amongst them," he explained.
Prof Azmi said the last government slashed or ended many college fees; resultantly, almost all government colleges face deep financial problems. He said government grants do not cater to the day-to-day expenses of colleges and the government should revive the former fee structure. He said senior teachers should be posted as college principals and the culture of posting junior teachers on senior slots must be stopped to ensure rule of merit.
The SPLA leader demanded from the education department to announce promotions of college teachers from BPS-17 to BPS-18, and BPS-8 to BPS-19 without further loss of time. ppi
