With education, an identified priority of the provincial government, the chief minister on Friday directed to fill as many as 3,500 vacancies in the 600 schools in the newly-merged tribal districts before the next session starts on April 1, 2020.

However, this has been instructed with directions to relax the rules for recruitment.

This was directed by the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Friday while chairing a high-level meeting on the progress of development portfolio in the education sector of the erstwhile federally administered tribal areas (Fata).

The chief minister expressed concern over delays in implementing developmental schemes in the newly-merged tribal districts (NMTDs).

He directed the education department to regularly conduct surprise visits of educational institutions in the tribal districts through the independent monitoring units (IMUs) to ensure the provision of quality education. Further, CM Mahmood directed the department to take steps for terminating all those teachers who provided fake documents and those who have been absent from their assigned educational institutions.

Expressing concerns over the quality of oversight officers in the tribal districts, the chief minister directed the provincial education department to appoint competent District Education Officers (DEOs) and formulate a policy for shuffling of all clerical staff who have completed at least two years of service on their current posts.

He also sought a report on the facilities available in educational institutions in these areas and the missing facilities.

The chief minister directed that all recruitments in the NMTDs should be from local communities. In this regards, he said that recruitment tests for teachers should be held in the respective districts, instead of conducting them in the provincial capital.

Curiously, Mahmood directed the education department to relax the rules for upgrading schools in the district and in hiring teachers. Furthermore, he directed that once appointed, posting and transfer requests from these teachers will not be entertained.

The Chief Minister also directed the newly elected representatives from NMDs and the education department to mutually identify cases related to schools up-gradation and establishment of new schools.

Recently-elected representatives from NMTDs expressed their views about the pace of developmental schemes in the education sector in their respective constituencies and also expressed satisfaction over the participative approach of the government towards ensuring good governance.

Officials told participants of the meeting that developmental schemes had been handed over to the provincial government during the ongoing fiscal year and substantial progress had been achieved in the Annual Development Programme (ADP) projects, including the programmes listed under the Accelerated Implementation Plan (AIP) and the Quick Impact Projects (QIP).

In this regard, Rs477.56 million has been allocated for some 139 ADP projects of which Rs154.63 million has been utilised. Moreover, Rs7.686 billion has been allocated for 18 developmental projects under AIP.

Under AIP, education-related projects include the development of play areas in schools, provision of stationery free-of-cost, school bags, free textbooks, provision of furniture, construction of boundary walls, toilet blocks, provision of drinking water, repairing rooms, building additional classrooms, strengthening parent-teacher committees (PTCs), establishing ECE Rooms, setting up science laboratories in high and higher secondary schools, provision of teachers to primary, middle and high schools and the establishment of computer labs.

As per the practice in the settled districts, Mahmood directed to shift schemes for the provision of textbooks to the current budget from the budget of the next financial year.

The meeting was informed that Rs2.540 billion have been allocated to provide stipends and scholarships for students of primary and secondary schools of NMTDs under an AIP project. The project will benefit some 543,085 students.

Under the private sector engagements to address access, equity and quality education challenges, different developmental projects including an education voucher scheme, the foundation assisted schools and new schools programme will be implemented. Other projects to develop the state of education in ex-Fata areas under the AIP include the solarization of some 4,711 primary schools, 548 middles schools and 363 high schools.

For this project, CM Mahmood directed the education department to involve the provincial energy department.

Similarly, he directed to include in AIP projects for rapid enrolment, quality improvement, schools governance reforms project and establishment of Cadet College in North Waziristan Tribal District.

A further five projects under quick impact projects are being implemented, including the extension of IMUs to NMTDs, filling vacant positions, primary schools rehabilitation programme, providing missing facilities and equipment in 21 higher secondary schools.

The “Story Da Pakhtunkhwa” scholarship programme for position holders is also being introduced. The government has released Rs3.87 million against total allocation of Rs15.49 million for the programme.

The provincial education authorities were asked on Thursday to adopt clear policies regarding board examinations while taking diametrically opposite decisions overnight creates confusion amongst parents and students. The education board was also directed to provide a gap of a year before implementing new examination or education systems.

This was directed by a two-member bench of the Peshawar High Court (PHC), comprising Justice Qaiser Rashid and Justice Muhammad Naeem Anwar, on Thursday as it resumed hearing a writ petition over the government’s decision to abolish board exams for the eighth grade while holding composite exams for the ninth and tenth grades.

During the hearing, the court expressed its resentment over the absence of education director even though the court had summoned him. Justice Rashid warned that if the official does not appear in next hearing, they will fine him.

Justice Rashid remarked that the educational year is coming to an end and the format for board exams has yet to be finalised.

The court ordered relevant authorities to inform students and parents at least year before changes to examination systems and education policies are made so that students and parents don’t face difficulties.

With the cadet college in Mamad Gat area of the Mohmand tribal district nearly complete, the provincial government has directed opening of the first academic session in the college from April next year.

The finance department has also been directed to release necessary funds to facilitate the process.

This was directed by Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Thursday while presiding over separate meetings for the board of governors of Mamad Ghat Cadet College and the Swat Cadet College at Chief Minister Secretariat in Peshawar.

In the first meeting on the Mamad Gat Cadet College, details about facilities at the college were discussed. Proposed timelines on making the college operational and other related issues were also deliberated upon.

The CM was told that classes for grade VIII and XI are expected to commence in April 2020 while a phase-wise increase in the number of cadets has also been proposed. Officials added that as many as 80 cadets will be enrolled in each class for the academic year 2020-21.

Similarly, 80 cadets will be admitted to grade IX the year 2021-22, while this cohort is expected to graduate into grade X in the academic year 2022-23. With 80 seats to be allocated for the grade, the total population in the college will swell to 400 in three-years time.

A fee structure for the first nine years of the college was also detailed. The college will provide cadets from the tribal districts of Mohmand and Bajaur with free education for its first three years. From then onwards, only 25% of the fees will be charged for the subsequent two years. Thereafter, only half of the due fees will be charged for the next two years and 75% fees will be charged in the last two years of the schedule.

Once the schedule ends, all students will be required to pay the full fees.

Cadets who apply on open merit will be required to pay 100% of the fees. Only children of martyrs will be exempt from fees. Mahmood agreed to the proposed plan and granted his consent to start educational activities at the college from next April.

He directed the provincial finance department to release Rs111 million so that the college can become functional before classes start.

The chief minister further emphasized the need to devise a long-term policy regarding the fee structure even as he assured the college’s administration of the government’s full cooperation.

He further directed that a quota of 20 seats in each class must be reserved for students from the tribal districts of Mohmand and Bajaur while ten seats per class should be allocated for the Khyber tribal district, ten seats for the wards of martyrs and 20 seats for students applying on open merit.

In a separate meeting with the board of the Swat Cadet College, the chief minister was briefed about the academic performance of the college for 2018-19, efforts to enhance capacity, redistribution of additional seats, budget and other allied matters. The meeting was informed that over the next three years, the college will require grants worth Rs20 million to meet its expenses. A proposal to increase the basic pay of the college’s employees by 10% was also presented. The increase will affect employees in grade one through 16. For employees in grade 17 to 19, a five per cent increase was proposed. The move was sanctioned.

The meeting also approved a proposal to increase the number of students inducted in the college from 100 to 120 in a three-year phased programme.

CM Mahmood directed the college to improve its performance. He further directed that two special seats must be reserved for children of martyrs and that they should be allotted on open merit instead of self-finance.

He also assured the provision of an ambulance and fire tender from Rescue 1122 to the Swat Cadet College. Moreover, he directed the college’s administration to submit a separate summary to meet other requirements for the college.

He also provisionally agreed to release a grant which had been approved for developmental works in the college.

Mahmood further directed all cadet colleges to convene meetings of their boards annually so that problems and requirements of the colleges can be addressed on time.
