Deteriorating education


Government-Primary-School-Abbottabad-2013

Article 26 of the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights states that everyone has the right to education. Education is not only a right, but also a passport to human development. It opens up new avenues of creativity and opportunities. The ultimate aim of Education for All (EFA) has been to ensure a sustainable development of every society. In Pakistan, education has failed to gain the attention of the government, and remains the least important matter. The ruling parties have captured EFA as a slogan without making much difference. In south Punjab many schools, colleges even universities lack basic facilities and the buildings are in dilapidated condition, let alone the education itself.
In Khanewal district for instance, many schools do not have their own buildings. Students study under trees. Here I have one example to quote. The Government High School Jarala, Faisalabad, has only three classrooms for 550 students, with no clean water facility, playground, or science laboratory. Worst of all the school is being run without teachers. It is time to change our education policy and to improve the condition of schools, colleges and other educational institutions.
