Education is undoubtedly the key factor involved in helping a country wade through the waters of progress and achieve wonders. If we take a look at the condition of government schools in Sindh, especially in rural areas, we’ll see institutions lacking competent and dedicated staff and management, which is a blatant injustice to the beleaguered students. On the one hand, not everyone has access to private schools where the academic environment is considerably better; on the other hand, government schools are failing miserably to provide quality education.
One of the major concerns which needs the desperate attention of higher authorities is the lack of resources and supplies. Surprisingly, there is no provision of water, facility of washrooms and well-furnished classrooms in some of the government schools, which is saddening because these are the basic needs every school must have. It is certainly shameful that students are facing detriment and social injustice because they can’t afford private schools. There must be strong measures taken against these circumstances to eradicate problems and ease the learning experience of poor kids.
The principals of some of the schools have made their institutes shed houses for their cows and goats, which shows their incompetency and sense of irresponsibility towards poor students facing turbulence. Unavailability of teachers is also a problem many students are facing, where teachers do not show up in class on time and do not provide proper time for studying. Most of the teachers in government schools show indolent behaviour and bung their jobs. It is heart-wrenching to hear such news, and we implore the government to initiate immediate action against such institutes so that sons and daughters of this nation can get a superior-quality education, which is their basic right. If things remain unchanged, then we’ll have to face harrowing consequences and we will be derailed from the path of progress.
