KARACHI, Jan 10: The Senate Standing Committee on Education and Science and Technology on Wednesday expressed concern over the teachers-students ratio at the Government College of Education for Women, Hussainabad.
During their visit to the college, the committee members under the leadership of Senator Razina Alam Khan were told that the number of students had declined at the college due to long standing ban on appointment of teachers.
According to a handout, the committee took serious note when it was told that the number of students was 52 and the college has a 25-member faculty.
Director, Curriculum Wing, Jamshoro, told the committee that due to mushrooming of private institutions, it became difficult for the college to enrol more students. Moreover, the ban on teachers recruitment was also one of the reasons for low number of students, said the director.
The committee also visited a couple of schools including Government Girls Primary Urdu School, Khudda Bazaar, Lyari.
