Learning essentials by ‘Sqn Ldr (r) M Saleem Ansari’


The two sectors that have been given the least attention by successive governments in the country are healthcare and education. We have seen an increase in the number of educational institutions but the learning facilities they offer are inadequate. However, the main issue is the quality of teaching. This is the biggest reason students fail to meet the challenges of the modern age. To arrest the falling trends educational institutions need to get four essentials right: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

An education by ‘Rehana Rafique’

Demand for hostel by ‘Munaj Gul Muhammad’


It is a matter of disgrace that the one and only Atta Shad Degree College in Turbat doesn’t have a hostel for the countless students who are facing problems of residence. The number of students who don’t attend the college regularly was because of the absence of hostels. As they don’t have hostel facilities, it’s problematic for them to commute back and forth from their homes — that are, in fact, situated nowhere close to the college itself.

Gordon College by ‘Taraq Jazy’


Soon after the conquest of Punjab was completed by the British in 1849, the American Presbyterian Mission entered the field of education. It opened a primary school in Rawalpindi in 1856, which was upgraded to the status of a high school in 1862.

The glorious period of Gordon College was during the principalship of Dr R R Stewart (1934-1955), who was an outstanding educationist. In 1948, it was the only college in Rawalpindi. For a long time, it was the most prestigious college in the Potohar region.

Where do out-of-school children go? By Noor Ahmed Baloch

The highest number goes to Nigeria. And Pakistan spends the lowest on education in South Asia. This makes Pakistan first-position holder in terms of the least spending country on education.
