The Need to Stop Students’ Exploitation by Academies

Sabaq Blog

Education, the birth right of every human being unfortunately is going out of the reach of a common man. Nobody can deny this harsh reality that education has become a business today just like any other business. This is not only a problem for Pakistan. Institutes and organizations all around the world are trying hard to overcome the educational crisis.

EXPLOITATION

However, Pakistan is facing this problem to a much greater extent. First of all, quality education is way too expensive for lower class. Even the people belonging from the middle class have to cut out their belly to be able to afford higher education.

Most of the educational institutes are simply there to exploit the students. After-school academies, tuition centres and home tutors make the top of the list. It is for this reason that we see tuition centres budding up in every other street.

After-school academies claim to be…

Lowering the Drop out Ratio of Pakistani Schools and Colleges

Sabaq Blog

Out-of-School-Children Out-of-School-Children

According to a report on out of school children (OOSC) by Alif Ailaan, more than 25 million Pakistani children between the ages of 5 and 16 are deprived of their right to education. One in every five of primary-school going children, does not attend school. This proportion increases at higher levels of education. While making sure that children who are enrolled remain in school is a concern across the country, the report reveals that the majority of out of school children are those who have never seen the inside of a classroom.

Doing a regional comparison, Balochistan has the highest proportion of out of school children, followed by the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). Whearas terms of population, more than half of the total number of out of school children are in Punjab.

What is even more disappointing is that girls comprise more than half of the  25.02 million out of school…

Congratulations to Malala for The Nobel Peace Prize!

Sabaq Blog

Malala-waving-her-Nobel-Prize
Sabaq Foundation presents its heartiest greetings to Malala Yousafzai for winning the Nobel peace prize.  Arriving in Oslo City Hall, Norway, Malala made history by becoming the world’s youngest ever Nobel peace prize laureate. Born on 12 July 1997, Malala came into limelight when was shot in the head by Taliban in October 2012. Her crime was that she stood up for the girls’ right to go to school. Since then, the 17-year-old teen from Swat has come a long way in her campaign for ‘every child’s right to education’. 

Malala received the peace prize alongside the 60 year old Kailash Satyarthi. Kailash is an Indian child rights activist who stood up to raise awareness about eradicating child labor. Along with speaking up for every child’s right to education, Malala also pleaded to the “developed and strong” countries to bringing peace and harmony in the world.

Causes and Treatment of Malaria

Learn about the Causes and Treatment of Malaria

Sabaq Blog

Discovery and Causes of Malaria:

The word malaria comes from an Italian word ‘mala’ meaning bad and ‘aria’ meaning air. Hence the word malaria means bad air. Malaria is spread through stagnant water where poisoned air is found. The breathing of that air causes malaria. This disease was discovered almost 2000 years ago by the physicians. They called it the disease of chills and fever. It was found that malaria was prevalent amongst people who live in ‘low marshy areas’.

Laveran was a French physician who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1907 for his discoveries of parasitic protozoans in blood that cause malaria. Laveran took the blood of some malarial patients and found tiny living organisms in their blood. Those tiny living organisms in their blood were ‘plasmodium’. People did not believe him at first. Several other scientists repeated the same experiment to confirm his findings.  Their  findings confirmed…

Physics, Chemistry, Math Problem Solving Videos Uploaded

Problem Solving Videos Along with Concept Lectures; Only @ http://www.sabaq.pk

Sabaq Blog

Physics, Chemistry, Math Problem Videos

One of the most unique features of our website is that along with giving concept lectures, it also provides video tutorials that explain and solve the difficult problems and questions from their textbooks. The main reason for doing so is to ensure that the students grasp the concepts fully. A student can not fully understand a concept unless it is explained by solving a difficult question. Hence, most of the concept lectures of Physics, Chemistry and Math for Matric (Class 9th and 10th)  are accompanied by videos solving a difficult problem or a question.

We firmly believe that education through online video tutorials can help the students and parents get rid of   academies and tuition centres that have plagued our society. Our videos are meant to be an aid for students deprived off of quality education. Such students are being exploited by those tuition centres. The students can seek help…

کوچنگ سینٹرز: اندھی کمائی کا ذریعہ

http://www.sabaq.pk provides a solution to this problem!

talimiakhbar

سید ذیشان احمد

کوئی سرکاری ادارہ کوئی ریگولیٹری باڈی موجود نہیں جو جھاڑیوں کی طرح ہر گلی میں اگتے ان سینٹروں پر نظر رکھے —

ہمارے ملک کے تعلیمی نظام میں کوچنگ سینٹرز بہت ہی اہم کردار ادا کرتے ہیں۔ میں نے اپنی تعلیمی زندگی میں جیسے جیسے قدم بڑھائے، مجھ پر یہ بات واضح ہوتی گئی کہ یہ سینٹر بالکل اسکولوں اور کالجوں کی طرح ہی اہم ہیں۔ اور تب ہی یہ حقیقت بھی کھلنے لگی کہ ایسے تمام سینٹر بالکل ایک ہی طرح سے تعلیم بیچنے کا کام کرتے ہیں۔

اگر تمام نہیں تو زیادہ تر ٹیوشن سینٹر ایک مشین کے طور پر کام کرتے ہیں۔ اور ایک مشین ہی کی طرح یہ روح سے عاری ہوتے ہیں۔ مشہور ترین سینٹروں کی فیسیں بھی آسمان سے باتیں کرتی دکھائی دیتی ہیں۔ ویسے تو کوچنگ سینٹرز اپنے اشتہاروں میں اس بات کا اعادہ کرتے ہیں کہ ان کا تمام…

بابا مجھ کو ڈر لگتا ہے
بابا میری مس کہتی ہیں،
کل سے سب بچوں کو اپنے گھر رہنا ہے،
گھر پڑھنا ہے،
میں نے سنا ہے۔۔۔۔
ایک بڑی سے کالی مونچھوں والے انکل،
بم لگا کر آئیں گے
سب بچے مر جائیں گے۔۔۔۔
بھول گئی میں ،،، نام بھلا تھا۔۔۔۔
اممممم۔۔۔۔۔۔ شائد دہشت گرد کہا تھا ۔۔۔
بابا کیوں ماریں گے ہم کو؟
ہم سے کوئی بھول ہوئی کیا؟
ہم سے کیوں ناراض ہیں انکل؟
بابا !!!!
ان کو گڑیا دے دوں ؟
یا پھر میری رنگوں والی ۔۔۔۔۔ یاد ہے ناں وہ نیلی ڈبیا؟
میری پچھلی سالگرہ پر مجھ کو آپ نے لا کر دی تھی
اور میری وہ پیاری پونی ۔۔۔۔ ریڈ کلر کی تتلی والی
وہ بھی دے دوں؟
پھر تو نہ ماریں گے مجھ کو؟
بابا!!!! مجھ کو ڈر لگتا ہے

Newton’s First Law of Motion Explained

Sabaq Blog

Newton’s first law

If an object is at rest , it will remain in that state unless applied by an unbalanced force. Similarly if an object is moving , it will remain in uniform motion unless applied by an unbalanced force.

Galileo introduced this theory in late 1500s. He said that objects have a natural tendency to return to their original positions if they are not being applied by a force. If a cycle is to be moved continuously, the person need to apply a force to the paddle. Descartes also said the same thing.

Newton however, disagreed with them. According to Newton;

“An object at rest remains at rest unless applied by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues to move with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force”.
