Pak Schools Politics Ruins Jeddah School Affairs

PISJ-ES managing committee dissolved
Arab News

JEDDAH: The managing committee of Pakistan International School Jeddah-English Section (PISJ-ES) stands dissolved with the departure of Pakistan Ambassador Shahid Karimullah. This follows a directive from Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the Pakistani Consulate General as well as the school.

As per the ministry’s directive, the new committee will be nominated after the arrival of the new ambassador. Until then, school Principal Sehar Kamran will look after the school’s affairs.

The committee, nominated by Karimullah in 2007, was never able to take charge during his tenure due to strong reservations of the school staff about its formation with people who, as per the school’s claim, do not fulfill even the basic requirement to be on the management committee. After its formation when the committee tried to take charge, all 134 teaching staff of the school had offered to resign in protest.

Interestingly, the managing committee again tried to assume charge on Monday after two years of its formation, but just then the Pakistani Foreign Ministry’s directive came effectively making it clear that the committee headed by Jamal Mufti stands dissolved.
