Students suffer due to power outages

ISLAMABAD: The students of Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) run educational institutions are facing severe difficulties in paying concentration towards their studies in classrooms due to the power outages and rising temperatures.Majority of the institutions working under the FDE lack the facility of power generators or uninterrupted power supply (UPS), and those which have only cater to the needs of the principals and teachers, not students. Fatima, a fourth class student of a government school, said that she is facing great difficulties in her studies when she has to bear severe heat in the classroom during load-shedding. She said that many of the students, especially of junior classes face health problems, like low energy level, weakness, and fatigue, and cannot focus on their studies.Shabbir Khan, another student of class six, said, “I am anxiously waiting for the summer vacations so that I can stay at home and protect myself from the scorching heat.” He said that the students of private schools are lucky in the sense that they are being provided the best facilities. Professor Tahir from a local college said that the students have to come to the schools six days a week, and they just have one day of rest, however, the officials of the public departments are enjoying two weekly offs of Saturdays and Sunday. He said that the authorities must announce two weekly offs for the students so that they can feel relax during the summer season.Shahid, a father said, “The announcement of summer vacations from June 7 is a sigh of relief for the students as the vacations would save them from the intense heat.” The rise in mercury during the last two days has become unbearable for the students of junior classes to come to the schools, he added.
