ISLAMABAD  - The representatives of Private Schools Network (PSN) protested over dual policy and different schedule of exams for the private and government schools students for centralised scholarship exams of Class-V.

The network represents over 600 private schools that charge fee from the students up to Rs 500. The members of PSN gathered in front of Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) and regretted that the result of last year's exams have also not been announced yet and when the examination are nearing the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) has announced a new pattern for the exams.

However, the FDE is of the view that the scholarship money only should go to the government students and participation of private school students in scholarship exams is against the government policy.

President PSN Muhammad Afzal Babur said for the last five years the students of private schools have been grabbing over 80 per cent scholarships showing the poor performance of government schools despite having hefty government funds so the FDE was trying to change the rules and policy of examination to manipulate results.

He demanded unified education system, similar system of scholarship exams and third party examination system for the private and government schools in the capital city. 

The representative of various private schools held meeting with the CADD Joint Secretary Chaudhry Asghar and other officials who ensured them to take up their issues in a meeting on which the protest was postponed.
