State-run schools

State-run schools

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 they cannot afford to pay the high fee of private schools. However, they cannot acheive quality education because of the poor conditions of these schools. While funds are released for state-run schools every year, the authorities rarely take initiatives to overhaul the education system in these schools.        

Intermittent power outages, poor infrastructure, a high rate of student and teacher absenteeism are never ending problems of state-run schools. Corporal punishment is also quite common in such schools and this affects a student’s learning ability. The government should ensure the provision of quality education in these schools because an educated nation is the final answer to our country’s progress and success. It should also hire honest and punctual faculty and administration staff that will guarantee the smooth execution of academic sessions.       Pakistan needs an educated and talented youth for its economic growth.
