Sindh’s educational farce

Sindh has apparently abdicated its constitutional duty to educate its children. How else can the government explain 5,229 ghost schools – 11 percent of the total 47,557 public schools – and a shameful net enrolment of just 50 percent in primary schools? An education department survey conducted earlier this year showed that almost 39 percent of Sindh’s population aged 10 or above had never attended school, and the net enrolment rate in middle, high and higher secondary schools was lower than that in primary schools. The enrolment rate in public schools in Karachi, the capital of the province and the commercial hub of the country, was a mere 10 percent, with 91 schools found to be non-functional.
