Karachi: Due to the lack of teachers and laboratories in Karachi colleges, students had to pay thousands of rupees as tuition fees.
According to Express News, the results of the computer science program, which was started hastily without any planning at the intermediate level under the county college education department, are coming in against expectations. The experiment has become ineffective.
According to the report of Express News reporter, the students who are admitted to this college will go to study centers for computer science subjects and laboratories and get computer education after paying thousands of rupees as fees. To date, no funds have been made available. It has been allocated by the education department of the college to set up computer labs in relevant government colleges and no payments have been made to principals in this regard, so most of the colleges do not have computer labs.
It should be noted that, in this regard, a notification was issued by the Director General of Sindh College affiliated with the Department of Education of the college on September 9, in which the directors of 21 government colleges were allowed to start the College of Computer Science and were obligated to do so. It has been said that this college to be commenced for the year 2022/23 will not have any financial implications and these principals must obtain college affiliation from Interboard Karachi in this regard.
It should be noted that in these 21 state colleges, when the Central Admission Committee started the process of “laying down” admission to the Faculty of Computer Science, some principals decided on this occasion, keeping the realities in front of them, to start the said faculty in the colleges and apologized for their admission and explained The education department of the college states that this college cannot start in the absence of teachers of the above-mentioned subjects and computer labs because that would be tantamount to cheating the students and their parents while forcing the students to resort to education centers in this regard.
When Express contacted Professor Raouf, principal of the Government Boys College in this regard, he said that the central admission committee had sent some computer science admissions to his college, but the college had teachers for the teaching process. Nor is there a lab while there has been no affiliation with Interboard, bringing those admissions back to Cap. He also revealed that there are only 4 teachers in the college for 15 positions reserved for pre-medical teachers (zoology, botany), commerce. Apart from this, teachers are not available for compulsory subjects like Urdu, English and Islamic due to which classes of these subjects cannot be held.
It should be noted that in other government colleges where the computer science college was started without any planning, the situation is worse in this regard and the principals and senior teachers of the colleges fear for the students of the computer science college about what they want. In the first exams between the two years and this situation will certainly affect their results.
On the other hand, when “Express” contacted Professor Khalil Rahman from Musa City Government College in the Federal District, he said: “There is no computer or laboratory teacher in his college. We told the students and their seniors at the beginning that there is nothing after which some of them withdrew from admission, but some of them got Admission These students have classes and laboratories for other subjects which include physics and other subjects but they do not have access to a computer.
He said that some computer professors have contacted me and expressed their desire to teach in the college. If the department transfers them, this problem will be solved.
And about granting any kind of funding to the computer labs, he said that so far we have not been granted any funding for the lab, but since we are committed to the instructions of the department, we will implement this decision anyway. By January or February, teachers need to be found and lab built, otherwise some teachers are ready to do computer operations on laptops as well.
“The department didn’t give them teachers, but we are part-time teachers with very low wages out of college money,” another college principal told Express on condition of anonymity. We run the business by hiring the students so that there is no problem for the students but we don’t have any solution regarding the lab.
On the other hand, when Rashid Khoos, who is responsible for placing computer science in colleges, was contacted, he said that there is no problem in the laboratory, while teachers are assigned training periods until the problem can be resolved.
