Letters to the editor
Cramming and Constructivism
Sir: Barring a few schools, all our educational institutions promote the contemptuous culture of cramming and plagiarism instead of inspiring imagination for creativity and constructivism. Reason behind this growing dismal state of affairs in our educational and training academies is largely the casual appointment of administrative staff at these places.
Sir: Balochistan government has once again failed in maintaining law and order in its education sector. Sadly, the examination halls in our cities are functioning without any electric fans in this brutal summer Absence of desks has further made the examination session even more challenging. Many students were seen attempting their papers while sitting on the floor. I urge the authorities to spur to action urgently.
