Education in Balochistan
In Balochistan, according to an official report 1.6 million children are out of schools and majority of those are counted girls. Balochistan with a great strategic importance has been neglected due to poor governance; however, the education crisis is very serious at the moment as compared with other parts of the country. Half of the population in the Province does not have access to education. 7000 schools, out of total 12,500 schools in the Province, lack proper infrastructures, teachers and other academic facilities.
Consequently, only, 50,000 students (Girls and Boys) hardly manage to complete their matriculation. The reasons is attributed the less attractive public schools. These statistics ought to alarm those concerned about the gloomy future of Balochistan. The government has to be very serious with regard to the rehabilitation of the weakened sector of education in the Province on priority basis. —Kech, Balochistan
