Naundero’s school charging illegal ID card feeDecember 15, 2015
NAUNDERO: Government Girls Higher Secondary School Naudero is charging Rs 130 each from its students for the issuance of ID cards in violation of rules and regulations.
As many as 1750 female students are enrolled in this school from Class VI to XII and in this way, the school have collected Rs 227,500 from the students. The Sindh government had made big claims for providing free education to all students in Sindh and ensured the monitoring system in schools but such issues have exposed their inefficiency.
The World Bank, USAID and many other international organization in collaboration with Sindh Education Department have spent billions of rupees to bring better schooling system but no results have yet been achieved so far, particularly in rural areas of Sindh.
In this connection, when media persons contacted the Principal of the school Tehmina Korai, she confirmed that Rs 130 have been charged from each of the girls for preparing their ID card.
When District Education Officer, Noor Jahan Abbasi, was contacted she told PPI that she is aware of charging of Rs 100 but don’t know why Rs 130 are being charged from the girl students. She said she will conduct probe into the issue.
When parents were contacted on Wednesday, many of them said that Rs 60 have been charged in Larkana’s many schools from each student on the same pretext and wondered as to how can it be raised to Rs 130 in Naundero. The parents appealed to higher authorities to take notice of this highhandedness and get it stopped immediately.
