Balochis­tan ed­u­ca­tion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

KHAL­IFA AR­MAN Balochis­tan is the Prov­ince, be­stowed with a host of nat­u­ral re­sources, but still thor­oughly ig­nored by some di­men­sions in form of sep­a­ratist in­sur­gency, ap­a­thy of suc­ces­sive gov­ern­ment and above all the lo­cal lead­er­ship which wants to keep the Prov­inve in com­plete ig­no­rance and to pro­long their own tra­di­tional supremacy. Balochis­tan is the largest Prov­ince ge­o­graph­i­cally, and cov­ers 47pc of the coun­try’s land­mass.

Ed­u­ca­tion mech­a­nism in Balochis­tan is com­pletely col­lapsed. Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey re­port male lit­er­acy in­ci­dence is 37pc and fe­male 27pc which demon­strates poor lit­er­acy rate in Prov­ince. Ac­cord­ing to another study, ru­ral lit­er­acy rate in Balochis­tan is 35pc which is realy de­plorable. There are just 12,500 pri­mary, se­condary and high schools in the Prov­ince. Ac­cord­ing to Pro­vin­cial Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mis­sion, the con­di­tion of schools is get­ting worse day by day as no ac­tion has been taken against the in­ci­dence of ghost schools and ghost teach­ers. I urge to the Chief Min­is­ter of Balochis­tan to al­lo­cate spe­cial funds to im­prove aca­demic in­fra­struc­ture of ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion – the schools, col­leges and a few uni­ver­si­ties. — Tur­bat
