Schools

Al-Falah Health & Educational Society (Rgd) is serving since 1998, in the field of Health & Homeopathic education system, Sukkur Homeopathic College (Previously) was one of the great achievement of Al-Falah society in Sukkur region, Sukkur Homeopathic College worked for Homeopathic education, and it has been proved as bright future for younger students and set a path of successful coming. The people of the region were irritated and seeking for a way to get rid of dominant allopathic treatments and unnecessary surgeries and post surgeries’ long term treatment. Sukkur Homeopathic College proved a shining ray for those people and went successful to give the other and safe way of being diagnosed and cured. As days past, the number of students increased day by day, so the building and infrastructure of Sukkur Homeopathic College became short, and it is switched to very fresh and natural environment @ Sukkur Bypass, and according to requirements many other courses are added and the college was renamed as  at present Al-Falah College of Para Madics and Technical Education is simultaneously affiliated with National Council of Homeopathy, National Regulation Services, Government of Pakistan and Sindh Board of Technical Education (S.B.T.E Sindh) and offers various programs under a roof with quality of education. For every Medical College (Homeopathic / Allopathic), Hospital / Health Institute is top priority, where students can practice and convert their studies (theory) into the practical, so we have B.H.S Hospital for our students, although the hospital mostly follows the allopathic way of treatment, but Al-Falah College has established a Homeopathic Department, where its students and doctors / professors are serving the patients through homeopathic way and medicines.  


Why do we have school in the first place? What is the purpose of schooling and teaching? If we don’t know what the mission and goals of school are, it’s not possible to even know if we get there. We also don’t know if the target was missed. Interestingly, with all the focus in recent years on accountability of schools, you don’t see that much public discussion about the fundamental purpose of schools.


Two primary opposing views exist regarding the purpose of schools. Some, such as the Business Roundtable (A. Ryan, 2004) and Achieve (Achieve, 2004), an organization created by governors and business leaders, believe that the primary purpose of schools should be to create workers who have skills and personal styles to fill and perform available jobs. Others believe this outcome is too narrow (Freeman, 2005; Goodlad, 1984; Hodgkinson, 2006; Postman, 1996). For them schools should seek to develop active citizens, helping children develop their own capacity for personal achievement and contributing to society as an active citizen for democracy.


These two goals, producing workers and creating citizens, require two very different approaches. If, on the one hand, the key goal is to educate students as workers, where education essentially functions as a section of the personnel department for business and industry, schools are expected to perform two essential tasks: (1) create a pool of workers with at least minimum competence and attitudes from which businesses can select employees; and (2) provide a way of sorting workers in rank order of ability, eliminating those from the pool who do not have the perceived capacity to function as employees. The goal for businesses, of course, is to have a large pool of potentially qualified candidates with requisite skills that far exceeds the availability of jobs. This allows the business to select the best candidate. The resulting competition for jobs allows them to keep wages lower, thus decreasing costs and increasing profits. This goal becomes evident through the call for standards with higher levels of skills. The need to have a way of ranking individuals in order of basic skills, or at least certifying minimum competency, is seen in the push for standardized testing that was incorporated into the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act passed in 2004. It is notable that the Business Roundtable and other business and industry groups were intimately involved in calling for identified minimum standards and the use of standardized testing.
