Ground realities

 
June 11, 2021

These days, many experts are talking about the future of higher education in Pakistan. High-sounding claims are being made without any real achievements. On the other hand, on Wednesday (June 9), we learnt about a shocking incident. Around 25 children, who were attending their classes in a state-run school in Islamabad, fainted in sweltering heat.

The city has been witnessing the hottest days for a few days now. That day, the matter was made worse by prolonged load shedding. Government officials and other experts should look into these ground realities.
