Re­forms in ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor needed to im­prove stan­dard

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

IS­LAM­ABAD—Ed­u­ca­tion­ists have de­manded of the gov­ern­ment to in­tro­duce es­sen­tial re­forms in ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor to im­prove stan­dar of ed­u­ca­tion in the coun­try.

Talk­ing to me­dia, they said the re­cent sur­vey in ed­u­ca­tion field re­vealed that round about 26 mil­lion chil­dren were out of the schools in the coun­try due to short­age of fa­cil­i­ties and trained teach­ers in the coun­try.

Ed­u­ca­tion­ist Naeem Has­san of Pun­jab said there were three main causes that which were fac­ing the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor of the coun­try such as lack of teach­ers’train­ing and a sys­tem to well equip teach­ing staff and train them in bet­ter way, the so­cial sta­tus of teach­ers was very low and pa­thetic due to which peo­ple avoid adopt­ing teach­ing pro­fes­sion and ed­u­ca­tional cur­ricu­lum was out­dated and un­able to pro­duce fruit­ful re­sults.

He said the gov­ern­ment should re­solve all such prob­lems as “Parha Likha Pun­jab” was the slo­gan of the cur­rent gov­ern­ment since the com­ing in power so that Pak­istan should be listed amongst highly lit­er­ate coun­tries.

Re­searcher Im­ran khan has said that Pak­istan’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem should be strong and upto the mark so that max­i­mum chil­dren should be en­rolled into the schools in the coun­try.—APP
