Govt funding sought for private schools in city


KARACHI: Government funds allocated for education should also be given to some private schools, said All Private Schools Management Association Sindh Chapter Chairman Syed Khalid Shah, addressing a press conference at the Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Wednesday. Shah said that private schools were catering to 70 percent of the student, but in terms of budgetary allocation to education, funds of the World Bank and other international institutes were spent only on government schools. He said that the Sindh Education Foundation was formed for financial support to low-fee-charging private schools, but it now ran its own schools and had stopped funding private schools. He demanded the authorities to exempt low-fee-charging private schools from taxes and duties, besides facilitating them in getting loans from banks. He said that efforts should be made so that these low-fee-charging schools could continue to run. He said his association registered only those private schools that charged fee up to Rs 3,000 per month. He said the schools that charge fee more than Rs 3000 per month were not low-fee-charging schools.
