KARACHI: All the schools falling under the Lyari Expressway Resettlement Project have been handed over to the Sindh Education Foundation (SEF). The education and literacy department of the Government of Sindh has given the SEF the go-ahead to take over the administration of these schools.
“We have registered all the schools and handed them over to the SEF,” said education secretary Fazlullah Pechuho. He was speaking to the media after the launch of the Reform Support Unit’s (RSU) first issue of their newsletter, ‘Reformers’.
The newsletter had been previously discontinued and the education secretary welcomed its re-launching with a new spirit. “We cannot communicate our thinking until we provide people information of what we are doing and the positive changes that are being brought about,” he said.
The eight-page quarterly newsletter is the final product of a team comprising five members of the RSU. ‘Reformers’ serves as a medium to inform the public of its newest developments and activities for the advancement of education in Sindh.
“The need for a newsletter was felt because of the communication gap between the department and citizens,” said RSU’s chief programme manager Faisal Ahmed Uqaili.
