The government of Sindh has taken the decision to promote class 1-8 students without exams on the basis of their earlier results, as announced by the provincial education minister Saeed Ghani.
He said that schools within Sindh will not be opened from the 1st of June and the decision about the extension in the schools’ closure will be announced in the days to come.
He further added that the federal government’s decision of promoting the students of grades 9-12 without any board examinations had some issues.
He indicated that the law about the board examinations does not permit the promotion of the students who do not appear in the exams. He also said that for promoting the grade 9-1-2 students, the law needs to be amended.
It is important to mention that the federal education minister Shafqat Mahmood had announced previously that the board’s exams will be canceled all across the country as part of the steps being taken to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
On the 11th of May, the Private Schools Management Association chairman denounced the decision of the federal government of halting the academic activities in the educational institutes until the 15th of July owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
The chairman of the association said that the private schools have not accepted the decision of the federal government of closing the educational institutes until the 15th of July.
He asked the federal authorities to give a permit to operate the private education institutions after forming SOPs.
