Our Education System & Ruling Elite (by Ali Hassan)

Shafiq Haider Moosavi runs a private education institution in Hyderabad.  He had set up an NGO for promotion of education.  The organization conducted a survey of many schools in several areas of Sindh Province.  It prepared a report on voluntary basis and sent it to Chief Minister Sindh.  The report recommended that the absentee teachers and ghost schools should be made functional and teachers be compelled to take interest in teaching the students.  But the Provincial Education Secretary, known as qualified but stubborn officer who has no working relations with Nisar Khorro the minister for education, was not ready the take any action on the recommendation of the report.   The ruling elite does not want to improve education system because they send their children to elite schools or abroad, and by keeping poorly educated or illiterate poor children they want to ensure a regular supply of their haris (peasants), crop laborers and workers to look after cattle of the ruling elite.
