Education in crisis... By Faran

13 February, 2014

Education is the basic need of every child and without it nations can't achieve their goals. Pakistan's rural as well as urban areas are badly in need of government intervention to improve their education system. In Sindh, more than seven million children are out of school. More than 8,000 schools do not have proper buildings and infrastructure. More than 80 percent of government-run schools do not have electricity.

In hot weather, children suffer without electricity in classes. Old school buildings are about to collapse and if government keeps neglecting the issue, these building might come down one day, killing hundreds of children in their wake. Sometimes it is being noticed that stray dogs and other creatures roam about in these schools and injure the children. Around 479 primary schools are closed due to unavailability of teachers. Teachers are getting salaries but they do not want to come to school. The government should act fast on the issue because without education Pakistan cannot stand on its feet.
