Sindh govt issues show-cause notices to schools for violating orders

KARACHI: Sindh’s education ministry has issued show-cause notices to nine private schools which were reopened today violating the government’s COVID-19 policy.
Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani while taking the notice of news regarding the opening of private schools directed the secretary education and the director-general private schools to initiate action against those who violated the government’s orders of not reopening educational institutions before September 15.
According to a notification, the ministry has given 24 hours to the private schools to respond to the notice. Ghani said that the provincial government will cancel registrations of schools that defied the orders and reopened.
He also directed the concerned deputy commissioners to take strict action against the administration of such schools.
The education minister warned that no one will be permitted to play with the lives of the children by reopening schools without the government’s permission and challenge its writ.
Meanwhile, Action Committee leader Engineer Abdul Rehman said that the schools resumed operations with all the standard operating procedures in place.
In a joint press conference, the president said that educational institutions have been closed for eight months and children’s education is being affected. He added that if the schools remain closed any further, then the students will lose out on one year of education.
Criticizing the decision to extend the closure of schools, he said that as many as 25 million children are already out of school in the country and the decision will double the number.
Commenting on the problems of the teachers, he said that apart from students teaching and non-teaching staff, too, have been affected by the closure of schools.
