Where there is demand, there is hardly any supply

Education is something that the people of Mubarak Village consider is necessary for both boys and girls but the residents of this fishing village have nowhere to send their children. There is only one primary school in the village, which barely fulfils the requirements of a school building, let alone a place where children acquire good quality education.

The neglect of education

Exercises in futility by Kamila Hyat

In 2011 the Sindh government after a visit by the then president to China decided that lessons in Mandarin would be made compulsory at all public sector schools. But four years on, that decision is now being at least partially implemented. The focus logically speaking, should be on ensuring a better quality of education for every child in the country. Adding Mandarin to the curriculum will obviously not help. We are already unable to teach even the basics.

Can education defeat terrorism?

Arguments in the past have claimed that education can defeat terrorism — this is not the case anymore.

Indifference to child rights

Pakistan ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1990, thereby committing itself to undertake necessary measures to make those rights obtainable and protected. Quarter of a century on, not much is happening.

Environment alert By Raja Muhammad Atif Azad

Environment has traditionally remained a specialised discipline at the university level, and is only discussed superficially during the formative years at school. In schools, whatever little is taught on the subject can be tossed aside as optional material. Often limited to statistics on pollution, environmental education rema­ins peripheral to our syllabi.

Private schools

Initially, private schools played a marvellous role in educating children. But now most private schools of Sindh are like government schools. The only difference is that in government schools the teachers are ghost teachers whereas in private schools teachers are available but they are not highly educated and have little or no experience at all.
