  • Timeline is a method in which resources are managed to give students as many educational opportunities and alternatives as possible in the most economical way.

School Timetable

  • A timetable is a tool in which these resources are organized to give students as many educational opportunities and alternatives as possible in the most economical way. In the developing world, the emphasis on cost-effectiveness cannot be overstated. The more effectively the resources used, the better the education for more children. The results stated in the timetable affect the entire school population and reflect the school’s curriculum and philosophy.

Case Study:

  • Mr. Ghori, head of a primary school once visited the classes of his school, and found that class ii was without teacher. When he checked the timetable, he found that Mr. Zubair was allocated the period in class ii at that time. When the head teacher inquired from Mr. Zubair about his absence in class ii, he told that he was taking period of English in class v at that time, which had been allocated to him in that class by the timetable in charge. The head teacher also revealed that two classes were concurrently having their games period in the school ground. Neither of the classes (class 1 and Class v) could play since the junior students were being pursued and had little space to play. Mr Ghori reviewed the timetable and removed the discrepancies present in the timetable.
