Newspost

 
February 25, 2017

State-run schools in the country need the immediate attention of the concerned authorities. Pakistan is a developing country and 60 percent of its population is living in acute poverty. Education is important for the progress of a country. Children from low-income families prefer state-run schools because of high fees structures in private schools. However, they cannot achieve quality education because of poor conditions of these schools. These schools are being neglected by the state. High amounts of funds are released every year but the authorities have not taken any initiative to overhaul the education system in these schools.

Intermittent power outages, bad infrastructure, a high rate of absenteeism are never ending problems of state-run schools. Corporal punishment is also quite common in such schools. This affects a student’s learning ability. As a result, they struggle in present modern society. The government should ensure good quality education in these schools. An educated nation is the final answer to a country’s progress and success. Pakistan needs talented people for its economic growth. The government needs to place strict, honest and punctual faculty in state-run schools. Schools’ administration should make sure the smooth execution of an academic session.
