The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chamber of Education has opposed cheating at the examination centres and urged the government to take prompt and effective measures to do away with the menace.
It the government comes up with concrete measures to stop the worsening situation at the examination centres, the private sector educational institutions would extend full cooperation to it,” said chairman of the chamber Nazar Hussain, deputy chairperson Seema Jamil and provincial coordinator Fazal Hussain at a press conference on Friday.
Nazar Hussain said the Secondary School Certificate examination would be held next month across the province and the process of preparation for the examination had already been started. “The cheating mafia has become active to hire halls and do every unfair practice to get better results,” he said.
Nazar Hussain said the government should nip the evil in the bud and take effective measures to overcome the sorry situation.He said negligence on the part of the quarters concerned regarding increasing unfair means at the examinations is a national crime.
It is the combined responsibility of the government, teachers and parents to save the children of the nation from being ruined,” he said.He said ignoring cheating would mean that the country’s affairs were handed over to incapable people and no-one could save a nation where incompetent people are at the helm of affairs.
Nazar Hussain said there was no difference between a fake degree and a degree obtained after using unfair means. He said it was due to cheating practice in the examination system that the country was confronting leadership crisis.
He urged the Education Department and Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education to take steps to discourage the menace. Seminars and workshops should be arranged to reform the examination system, he added
