  • According to ASC 2012-13, 161 Teachers are working in Middle Schools (147 Male and 14 Female Government Teachers),while according to ASC 2011-12, 144 Teachers were working in Middle Schools (133 Male and 13 Female Government Teachers)

  • According to ASC 2012-13,48 Teachers are working in Higher Secondary Schools which are Male Government Teachers,While 9 Female Subject Specialists are not reported,because there is NO Girls Higher Secondary School in District Matiari,so perhaps these ladies are taking salaries at their homes.
  • There are 19 RPS/SPES working for the supervision of the Primary Schools

Teacher Student Ratio,2011-2012-2013

From above chart we see that, there is No need of the recruitment of any PST in District Matiari, because several Primary Taechers which were recruited two years  ago on the basis Union Council,theyy are not performing their duties in those schools,where they were bound to perform the duties for three years,so those schools are again closed.Now if folloowing that policy new Teachers are recruited on Union Council base,the result will be the same.Now a days DEO has upgraded 17 Middle Schools to High Schools and promoted several PSTs to HSTs without SNE and has opened directly a New High School in the building of a running Primary School to accomodate those promoted teachers.There is No Girls Higher Secondary School in Matiari,but several Female HSTs are promoted to Subject Specialists to evacuate the posts of HSTs.Hundreds of OT,PTI,AWI,DT,and L.T are recruited against the posts of JSTs.While the Tests for JSTs will be conducted in future,so what will happen when origional people will qualify for these tests.

Here we see that the dropout ratio up to class 5 is comparatively low to dropout between class 5 and 6, especially in Girl Students, which becomes half when we compare the Girls enrollment of Class 5 and 6.The reason for this is the small number of girl’s middle and high schools.In whole district we have only 2 Middle Schools for Gilrls, while we have 20 Middle Schools for Boys; we have 13 Girls High Schools, while we have 36 Boys High Schools. In Taluka Hala We have only 5 Girls High Schools & NO Middle School for Girls and in Saeedabad We have NO Middle School for Girls and only 2 Girls High Schools. This causes dropout of Girls Students when we compare the Girls Enrollment of Class 5 and 6. Beside this we have only 155 Girls Primary Schools, while we have 764 Boys Primary Schools. At the same time we have only 652 Female Teachers, while we have 2880 Male Teachers.From above data we see that,in 2012 the Enrollment was decreased in comparision to 2011,but in 2013 it has been increased,though it has not touched the figure of 2011 but it is improved.

Boys Dropout Ratio 2011Boys Dropout Ratio 2012Boys Dropout 2013Girls Dropout 2011Girls Dropout 2012Girls Dropout 2013

According to ASC 2011-12,Overall decline in Boys Enrollment was 6.2%,while decline in Girls Enrollment was 3.7% and Whole decline in Enrollment was 5.4% in comparison to last year i-e 2011.While According to ASC 2012-13,Overall increase  in Boys Enrollment is 5.7%,while increase in Girls Enrollment is 3.7% and Whole increase in Enrollment is 6.7% in comparison to 2012.

According to ASC 2012-13, the average teacher Student ratio in District Matiari is 25 Students per Teacher, which meets the International Standard, But at the same time we have 65 officially closed Schools,which are are closed only due to unavailability of teachers, and beside this more than 200 schools are not running properly due to unofficial absence of teachers.

We have 941 (919 Primary & 22 Middle) Schools having total Enrollment of 68423,and 2692 Government Teachers in these Schools that means for Every 71 Students We have a Government School.(Here we are not including Newly started Schools without SEMIS Code)

At the same time we have

1 School having 2 Teachers for Total Enrollment of 5 Students

1 School having 4 Teachers for Total Enrollment of 8 Students

2 School having 7 Teachers for Total Enrollment of 13 Students

Similarly,

6 schools having enrollment less than 10 students,

16 schools having enrollment less than 15 students,

63 schools having enrollment less than 20 students,

74 schools having enrollment less than 25 students,

57 schools having enrollment less than 30 students

65 schools having enrollment less than 35 students and

84 schools having enrollment less than 40 students

If we add this number then it becomes 6+16+63+74+57+65+84 = 365,

Which is the 39% of all the Schools (941) and these Schools can be handled by Single Teacher only.

It means the remaining 61 % schools (576) do have the 2327 teachers,

If we calculate this ratio, then we have (2327/576)= 4 Teachers per School

Similarly we have

10 schools having student teacher ratio less than 05,

55 schools having student teacher ratio less than 10,

99 schools having student teacher ratio less than 15,

152 schools having student teacher ratio less than 20,

149 schools having student teacher ratio less than 25,

127 schools having student teacher ratio less than 30.

Which means out of 941 (919 Primary & 22 Middle) Schools, We have (10+55+99+152+149+127) = 592 Schools,
where staff is in excess.

While we have,

10 Schools having enrollment 18 to 63,which are Non-Functional due to Unavailability of Teachers,

55 more Non-Functional Schools which can run properly ,if Teacher is provided,(Children of these areas
are out of school)

8 Schools having teacher student ratio greater than 100,(Up to 156)

12 Schools having teacher student ratio greater than 80,

21 Schools having teacher student ratio greater than 70,

28 Schools having teacher student ratio greater than 60.

If Teacher Rationalization policy is implemented strictly, the closed schools can be easily opened and the shortage of teachers in all the Schools of District Matiari can easily be covered.

These all efforts will cause the increase in enrollment and a big number of Out of School Children can be enrolled in schools, without making more buildings and recruiting the teaching staff.

Funds spent by the Government for the Education of the Children

There are 5 Types of Funds

 1.  School Specific Budget

Every Year Government allocate these funds to the Schools for the betterment of School and Children to conduct various activities, such as games, debates, seminars, teaching material etc

 2.  S M C Funds

Every Year Government allocates these funds to the Schools for the betterment of School and Children.

There are different fixed amounts for different categories of Schools.

3.  Stipend for Girls (Class 6 to 10)

Every Year Government allocate these funds to the Girl Students to encourage and motivate the Girls toward Education, so that the Parents of the Girl Students may not bear the expenditure of Stationary

4.  Free Text Books

Every Year Government distributes Free Text Books among all the Students of Class Pre-Primary to Class 12.

 

5.  S E R P (TOP)

Every Year Government release Rs. 100 Million to Each District of Sindh through World Bank for the Repair, Maintenance, Construction of Schools

So Every Year Total Funds spent by the Government of Sindh for the purpose of imparting the Education of the Children are  Rs.  254,481,500

Now if the expenses on salaries of Teaching, Non-Teaching and Administrative staff are included then,

Average Salary of a Primary Teacher is Rs.30,000/- per month and in District Matiari we have  2531 Primary Teachers reported working in District Matiari,so Rs.30,000/- x  12 Months  x 2531 =  Rs.911,160,000/-

Similarly, Average Salary of a Teacher working as JST,HST,SS,OT,DT,LT etc is Rs.50,000/- per month and in District Matiari we have  1072 Teachers reported working in Middle, High & Higher Secondary Schools of District Matiari, so Rs.50,000/- x  12 Months  x 1072 =  Rs.643,200,000/-

Now if we include the salaries of Peons,Chowkidars, sweepers,Malhis etc,then their estimate number in District Matiari is near about 1000,now if take average salary of these as Rs.12,000/- per month, then this amount will be Rs.12,000/- x 12 Months x 1000 = Rs.144,000,000/-

Then if we include the clerical staff of Schools and Admin Office then it is near about 300, if take average salary of these as Rs.20,000/- per month, then this amount will be Rs.20,000/- x 12 Months x 300 = Rs.72,000,000/-

Then if we include the salaries of DEO,DOEs,DDOEs,ADOEs ,Account Officers and other Admin Staff then, their number is near about 20 and their salaries are between Rs.50,000/ to Rs.100,000,if we take average then Rs.70,000/- x 12 Months  x 20 =  Rs.16,800,000

Now if we consider the contingency budget of all Education Offices, it may become,Rs.10,000,000/-

So the Total Average Expenses on the Salaries of all Government Servants of Education Department District Matiari are  Rs.1,797,160,000/-

Now by adding the sum of above-discussed funds (School Specific Budget,SMC Funds, Stipend for Girls, Free Text Books and SERP) we will have Rs. 2051,641,500/-

This shows that every  year  Government of Sindh is expending 2052 Million Rupees for  near about 90,000 students of District Matiari

If we calculate the expenses on one student, 2052,000,000/90,000 = 22,800.

This shows that every year the Government of Sindh is expending Rs.22,800/- per student.   (this figure can vary for other Districts of Sindh between Rs.20,000/- to Rs.25,000/-)
