I am writing in reference to the recent selection process for admission in KG at GD Langlands School Chitral. It is of the utmost concern for the parents and the community that proper selection process was not followed. Many parents are concerned that instead of merit, favoritism and nepotism was the criteria in the selection of children for admission. We have high hopes that GD Langlands School under the leadership of Carey Schofield will uphold merit and students and parents will trust its selection process.
Sadly, in its recent selection process it was observed that merit was not followed. In fact, most parents could not understand what made the school administration reject or accept a student as no criterion was made clear to the parents. The merit list was not displayed, there was no feedback about the students’ performance and the parents were kept in the dark.
We, the parents and the community at large who have always had high hopes from Ms Carey and GD Langland School, demand to hold an inquiry in to the admission process. Those involved in the admission process should be investigated. This will go a long way in making the school’s administration and its merit credible in the eyes of the parents and the community.
The community has high hopes from Ms Carey that she should implement merit and transparency in education system using her vision and exemplarily leadership which is a hallmark of standard educational system. GD Langlands School under the leadership like her predecessor Mr. Langlands is an example for other private and public sector institutions and they look up to it as a model institute of learning. But, certain hidden hands are bringing a bad name to this institution and have been able to misguide Ms Carey giving a serious blow to reputation of the institute. We hope that Ms Carey following the vision of its founders will do her utmost to uphold merit and transparency and will take disciplinary action if any member of the selection team is found to be involved in corruption and nepotism in the admission process.
Additionally, the ironical proof of the selection was really clear on the same day of the test and interview. I was expecting transparency from this institution. Expecting the proper system to call the candidates for the test and interview that was paradoxical as I was given the entry no (2) to be appeared in the second turn. What unexpected happened to me was really intolerable. After a long wait when I inquired about my turn, shockingly 42 serial was going for the interview. On inquiry it was made clear that there was no systematic way of calling the candidates to the test and interview. Following the same way, I also forcefully sent my child to the panel. But I am not satisfied with this state of affairs.
