PAKISTAN : Officials helpless against rampant cheating in Sindh.

''How could students sit cleanhanded for exams when NO teachers are available to them, observes an  academic.''

As unfair practices are rampant during the outgoing higher secondary school certificate [HSC]  annual examination, as many as 197 cases of copying, 71 of impersonation and one-replacement were detected by various teams of Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education [BISE] , Larkana during  HSC Part-1 English paper, here last Saturday.

61 cases of cheating were found in Larkana district while one impersonator and 28 cheating cases were detected in  Kambar-Shahdakot .

One replacement and 41 cheating cases were seen in Shikarpur and 34 cases in Jacoabad. In addition, 46 impersonators and 26 cheating cases were detected in Kashmore with 21 impersonators and seven copy cases found in Dadu.

This is an alarming situation as the board teams and civil administration appear unable to effectively act against the ongoing practice of using unfair means.

This clearly reflects either shortcoming at the hand of students as incompetence of teachers. It means the teachers are not doing their jobs for which they get huge salaries every month of hard earned taxpayers money.

A retired professor noted that required facilities were unavailable in in educational institutions across Sindh. He further added that a lack of science laboratories  and shortage of teachers have both added to the misery of teachers and students.

A large number of vacancies still still exist various schools and colleges of the province, which had not yet been filled. For this, only the Sindh government was said to be blamed and held responsible.

The former professor queried if the crime could be wiped out, why could not copy culture?
