Mount Carmel High School in the Woodlawn community of Chicago has been an all-boys school since its founding more than 120 years ago. But that could soon change.

In a post on its website, the Catholic high school said it was studying the possibility of going coeducational in 2023.

Brendan Conroy, president of Mount Carmel High School, says demographics are declining in both public and private schools, and that’s why the school is discussing possible change.

“We would rather make a decision as we watch these difficult demographics ahead, from a position of strength, than find ourselves on the road, perhaps having to make a decision from a position of something less than strength,” did he declare. said.

As noted in the post on the school’s website, growth has been elusive for all single-sex schools in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago. However, growth is occurring in mixed backgrounds, according to leaders.

Reverend Carl Markelz, former headmaster and president of the school, said the Carmelites, who founded the educational institution, “applaud this exploration, as it intends to build on the strengths of ‘an already solid school’.

“Now is the time for the Mount Carmel community to engage in constructive dialogue about gender diversity,” he said.

People connected to the school have expressed various opinions about this possibility on social media.

Some say the change would be “disastrous” and say “the time is not right”.

Others claim their daughters should enjoy the same opportunities they had when they attended Mount Carmel.

“We want all the opinions, it means people care deeply,” Conroy said.

Conroy stressed that no decision has been made and that everyone’s opinion is welcome, whether they are for or against the change. If approved, the school will become coeducational in the 2023-2024 school year.

Even though it is illegal to set up brickyards within 1,000 meters of any educational institution under current law, 17 plots have been set up near several Brahmanbaria schools, exposing nearly 10 000 students in the region at risk of health complications. Picture: star

Several brick kilns, built near different educational institutions, operate in Brahmanbaria, defying the law and negating the objections of locals.

Harmful smoke from ovens enters schools directly, exposing students and teachers to health risks.

According to the Department of Environment (DoE) Brahmanbaria office, at least 17 brick kilns have been set up near educational institutions. As a result, more than 10,000 students are at health risk.

Under current law, it is prohibited to locate brickyards within 1,000 meters of any educational institution, swamp or farmland, hill, government road or residential area.

But local governments have taken no effective action against the kiln owners responsible for the violation, residents say.

According to the DoE, Mehdi Bricks is located near Khalapara Government Primary School in Suhilpur union of Brahmanbaria Sadar upazila. Paban Bricks is just 300 meters from Bakail Public Primary School in the same area. There is a government primary school within 600 meters of Arab bricks, next to Gokarnaghat in the municipal area of ​​Brahmanbaria. There is also another oven named Rony brickfield next to it. These two are located less than 500 meters from the perimeter of the municipal territory.

Messrs. Bharasa Bricks and Mia Bhai and Co (Azim Bricks) from Sindhura village in the Natai Dakkhin union of the upazila are located next to a public primary school and high school. Two brick kilns have been built along the river just 550 meters from Krishnanagar Abdul Jabbar High School in Nabinagar upazila.

Bhuiyan Bricks is 500 meters from Rampur Government Primary School in Bijoynagar upazila. Another kiln, Madina Bricks, is located the same distance from the school.

Titas Bricks is 600 meters from Mugra Government Primary School in Akhaura Upazila and 150 meters from Dhaka-Chattogram and Chattogram-Sylhet Railway.

During his visit to the area, this correspondent saw huge bricks being burned at Mehedi Bricks, set up near the Khalapara public primary school.

Parul Begum, headmaster of the school, said the brick kiln was causing them serious risks to their physical and mental health.

Bishwajit Karmaker, acting principal of Kalishima Dakhhin Public Primary School, echoed the same.

When contacted, Md Nurul Amin, Deputy Director of Brahmanbaria DoE, said there were 181 brick fields in the district, of which 99 were operating illegally. “Our department organizes mobile legal campaigns against all illegal brick kilns, including brick fields near educational institutions. »

Education Minister Dipu Moni told parliament on Sunday that the education bill would be finalized on June 23.

In response to a question from Jatiya Shameem party legislator Haider Patwari, the minister said that after finalizing the bill, it would be sent to the Cabinet Division for approval.

The Ministry of Education took the initiative to prepare an education law in accordance with the Education Policy 2010. The policy recommended the formulation of a law for proper implementation of the policy.

He also instructed a subcommittee of the Education Policy Implementation Committee to draft legislation on January 26, 2011.

In December 2016, the Ministry of Education sent an Education Bill to the Cabinet Division. But it was taken up following huge criticism as the ministry legitimized coaching and tutoring in the name of ‘shadow education’.

According to the education bill, it will contain a provision prohibiting the printing, publication and marketing of workbooks and guides.

The bill stipulates that teachers will not be able to give private lessons to students from their own establishments. It also aims to ban corporal punishment for schoolchildren and mental torture by teachers.

According to the officials, the bill makes the printing, publishing and marketing of notebooks and guidebooks punishable by imprisonment for up to three years or a fine of up to Tk 5 lakh or both.

It also stipulates that if a teacher forces students at his institution to buy notebooks and guides, action will be taken against him.

However, the government will only authorize the publication of supplementary works and educational aid works after approval by the authorities concerned.

If a teacher in an educational institution forces students to buy extra books and educational aid books, it will be considered misconduct and disciplinary action will be taken against them, the bill says. .

Minister of State for Primary and Mass Education, Zakir Hossen, told parliament that day that there were 5,626 dilapidated primary school buildings in the country.

In response to a question from the ruling Awami League legislator, Mamunur Rashid, he said the government had taken steps to develop infrastructure in the dilapidated public primary school buildings.

According to sources available on different websites, the total number of public primary schools is around 65,000.

Responding to a question from the ruling Awami League legislator, M Abdul Latif, the Minister of Education said that the government had taken steps to establish 10 public secondary schools near the capital to reduce the pressure on students in schools in Dhaka.

These schools will be in Keraniganj, Purbachal, Jalkuri, Nabinagar, Dhamrai, Hemayetpur, Joarsahara, Santarkul, Ashulia and Chittagong Road.

In response to a question from Jatiya Party MP Mujibul Haque, Dipu Moni said the government would take necessary measures to address the problem of indiscriminately setting high tuition fees in private universities.

“The University Grants Commission already collects and reviews the fee structure of all private universities,” she added.

Responding to a question from AL lawmaker Nizam Uddin Hazari, Minister of State for Primary and Mass Education Zakir Hossen said the ongoing school feeding program would end on June 30.

“A feasibility study has been initiated to undertake new projects in this direction. After the completion of the feasibility study, a new project will be adopted for school feeding for students in government primary schools across Bangladesh in light of the recommendations,” he added.

Responding to a question from AL lawmaker Mamunur Rashid, Dipu Moni said that educational institutions that are not registered with DFO would be considered for DFO registration.

CARACHI:

The Sindh government’s decision to lift the ban on student unions, which came about four months ago, has given hope to students in the province who have longed for representation for four decades.

They believed the landmark legislation would help undo some of the damage done over the forty years student federations have been forced to stay out of the picture, while shaping the future of student leadership.

However, the subsequent lack of implementation of said legislation appears to have been a wake-up call for the province’s student body which pinned its hopes on the reformed law.

Due to this, various student issues, such as unfair hike in tuition fees, lack of facilities like transportation, boarding schools, and drinking water, in addition to harassment cases and anti-terrorism FIRs filed by intuitions against protesting students, began to accumulate again. no way out for the reprieve.

The Sindh Student Union Bill 2019, passed unanimously in February 2022, aimed to revive student unions banned in 1984 under the rule of military dictator General Ziaul Haq. Setting a deadline for implementation, the bill maintained that “every educational institution shall, within two months of this Act, formulate regulations and procedure for the conduct of the union.” The words, while affirmative, made little sense, given that the government has failed to finalize the rules and universities have yet to implement the law.

Key features of the law, however, indicated that student unions would be revived to promote an environment conducive to social interaction and the exchange of ideas and with restrictions on violence and gun culture in educational institutions. “There must be a student union in every educational institution made up of bona fide students. It will consist of seven to eleven members elected by the students of the particular educational institution,” the law said adding that “the educational institution conducts student union elections every year and it must have at least one candidate of the elected student. union in its union, senate council with a harassment protection committee, which must be gender balanced and have a representative from the student union.

Sindh Youth Action Committee Chairman Sindhoo Nawaz Ghanghro, who has lobbied on students and youth issues, called the issue “slow work” on the implementation of an extraordinary law. “The government is getting a lukewarm response to solving student problems,” she said. Giving the background to the law, she went on to say that the provincial government originally sprang into action in 2008 and promised to pass a law when students across Sindh staged sit-ins demanding the revival of trade unions. Then he went silent for 11 years. “After huge struggles and protests from students and civil society, the provincial government consulted with us, together with university vice-chancellors and other stakeholders, to finalize the bill in 2019. Later, it took the government three years to pass the law,” she said. expressed his dismay that the implementation of the law calls for a new series of struggles and protests, “without which there will be no tangible results”.

Student issues will only be resolved by their representatives in the unions, whether it’s fee issues, hostel accommodation or harassment. In the current scenario, teachers and other university staff responsible for wrongdoing are asked to solve their problems, which is unfair,” Ghanghro said.

Zeeshan Mangrio, who is studying economics at Shah Abdul Latif University in Khairpur Mir, said they started the protest when the university administration suddenly increased the annual accommodation fee from Rs 7,000 to Rs 14,000. “We referred to the rules and asked them to improve it by 5-10% but all went to no avail,” he said, adding that there are about 12,000 students enrolled in college and that they reduced the transportation buses from 43 to just 23 to choose from. and drop off the students. “Students living in the city of Khairpur, Pano Aqil, Sukkur and Pir Jo Goth have been waiting for the points for hours but no one pays attention to us. Students, especially girls, are forced to sleep in courtyards and on the open roof of hostels. It forces us to protest,” he said, adding that the university administration not only threatened them for demanding what is their right, but also registered FIRs against many students.

Similarly, protests by medical students at Ghulam Mohammad Mahar Medical College in Sukkur also made headlines last month, when the university administration threatened and harassed female students for their protest over lack of transport. and other basic facilities. “We parents have also joined the protest against the admiration of universities for their failure to provide basic facilities,” said a retired professor whose daughter is a medical student. “Instead of solving the problems, the vice-chancellor started harassing and threatening the girls. This angered us and we joined the mass protest. The entire district administration, including the contacted commissioner, came forward and a committee was formed to investigate the matter. Let’s see what happens now,” he added.

Despite numerous attempts to reach the Chief Minister’s Advisor on Councils and Universities for comment on the matter, contact could not be made. However, the department spokesperson said some problems have arisen at the university level due to lack of resources. “Some students protested at the University of Sindh against the 30% increase in admission fees, but this issue has now been resolved as the fees have been waived,” he commented.

Regarding the implementation of the Student Unions Act, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mukesh Kumar Chawla said that the government is committed to reviving student unions, adding that the implementation of it will start soon. . “The rules are being finalized. After that, the law will go into effect across the province,” he told The Express Tribune.

I also recently read a previous letter to the editor from Bill Strong from 2021 (A Dream for SHNB) that shared a similar idea. I want to support him. With the demolition of the old Saskatchewan hospital last summer, I hope that serious consideration is being given to using the old Sask. Site of the hospital as the future campus of North West College.

Mature trees, large flattened lots, existing road access, ample parking and an already serviced area make the site immediately suitable as a future home for North West College. Additionally, the site would provide a significant growth opportunity as North West College expands and offers more programs to area residents over the coming decades. The site’s proximity to the Saskatchewan Hospital, Drumming Hill Youth Center and industrial area businesses would allow for partnerships in internships, on-the-job training, internships and other areas.

The east end of town is also a good location for a post-secondary campus. The area would be well suited for the construction of student residences in the future, and its location on the North Saskatchewan River would be ideal for a post-secondary institution. The immediate site could also become more developed on the riverside with the possibility of building paved paths for walking, wheelchairs and cycle paths.

This would also be an area where exploration of future partnerships with the First Nations University of Canada (FNUC) could be undertaken, given the young local Aboriginal population in and around the Battlefords. Our Battlefords public transit system could be appropriately expanded to increase connections between campus and existing accommodations in Battlefords for post-secondary students who come for educational programs in the community.

The recent vacancy of former Sask. The hospital site and coinciding plans for a new North West College campus are a fortunate opportunity to use an already developed site for positive public purposes. A campus on this now empty site could establish a solid foundation for the growth of post-secondary education in the Battlefords for decades to come.

I hope that the Town of North Battleford, the Town of Battleford, North West College, the First Nations University of Canada, the local First Nations governments and other stakeholders will give serious consideration to the redevelopment of the old Sask. The hospital grounds into a post-secondary institution for the community – now and as a lasting legacy for the future.

“The proposed policy would identify and nudge research and innovations happening at the garage level in large institutions. Even individuals with innovative ideas and a passion for research would be encouraged. national educational institutions,” Bommai said while providing support to the National College in its science and research efforts.

“The National Institution of Education implements the new education policy. It makes comprehensive changes to the education system. The NEP encourages experimentation and gives importance to science. The state government puts setting up Atal labs in every school at a cost of Rs 50,000,000. This would give a big boost to research,” Bommai said. Recalling the service and dedication of the late Narasimhaiah, Bommai said, “Narasimhaiah worked for building a modern India while maintaining the ancient values ​​of the country. He was known for his scientific temperament and his campaign against superstition. Narasimhaiah has built a great educational institution and those who study here are very lucky.”

Meanwhile, during PM Modi’s eight-year tenure, many new initiatives have been taken in the country; The new education policy is one of them. Thanks to this policy, the young people of the country will also be able to follow higher education in their regional language.
