Improved education opportunities for all

by Muhammad Ajmal Khan Advocate, Chitral


I strongly feel that education opportunities should be available equally to all the children and youth of the country. For that I have two proposals. Firstly, like proposed earlier by another writer, the syllabus and books should be same in all educational institutions (both government and private) upto the secondary level. If that is not possible, then alternately I suggest, privatise all government schools as they are a burden on the government exchequer and also responsible for falling educational standards.
In this way at least the government school buildings would be better utilized and also the standard of education would improve due to competition in the private schools visibly absent in government schools.
