Projectors and Computers to Replace Blackboards

At the moment someone may never have an idea about a classroom without a black/white board in our cities but this is going to become a reality in the schools as the provincial education department has initiated spadework to only use projectors and computers to impart education to the students. Chalkboards seemed to be a staple in the classroom until 2000, when most higher learning institutions replaced the chalkboard and chalk with whiteboards and dry-erase markers. With a new sleek, white design and colorful markers, students' interest in learning seemed to peak just a bit. Most of the public sector schools in Punjab also started using white boards that helped teachers increase the interest of the students in their studies.

Not Another 50 Years

Fifty-one years ago, this month, a group of 38 scientists got together at Hotel Swat in Saidu Sharif. The meeting, from August 23-27, 1965, was the first of its kind in the Republic. Abdus Salam, Salim-uz-zaman Siddiqi, Razi-ud-din Siddiqi, I H Usmani were all there. And on August 26, so was the president of the Republic. The agenda was simple and straightforward: to take stock of national progress in science and plan for the future. Dr Nazir Ahmad in his report on the importance of research among university personnel laid out bold ideas, including providing salary support of up to 50 per cent to research-active faculty. Had we paid even the slightest attention to his ideas about creating a research-friendly culture at universities, our national research would be at a very different place today.

Population Overflow

Pakistan’s population is growing at an alarming rate. Overpopulation not only paves way for numerous economic problems but also promotes evil practices in society. Over population is creating several problems in education sector which cannot cater to such a large number of people. The illiteracy rate is going up day by day. The employment sector cannot provide jobs to the entire working population and thus many commit crimes like theft to make ends meet. Immediate measures must be taken to control the population of our country. Masses should be made aware of how overpopulation can devastate our country’s economy.

Plan for the population

The rapid growth rate of Pakistan’s population continues to confront our policymakers and the ruling elite. It is proposed that a Population Control & Regulation Authority (PCRA) be established in every province. Our education and health sectors cannot flourish properly until the population growth rate is stymied. The other day, I heard a stakeholder mention that the sports standard of the country is deteriorating as more and more localities and colleges are converting their amenity plots and parks to concrete development in order to cater to the needs of a growing flood of human beings (residents, students & employees). It is time our ruling elite incorporated ‘family planning’ in the national agenda as well as in NAP so that the growing mismatch between our resources and our population is rectified expeditiously.
