72 percent kids out of school in Sindh
KARACHI (PPI) – Provincial Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq said on Wednesday that 72 percent children are out of school in 10 districts of Sindh, where 1000 closed schools are being opened under public-private partnership.
The service of private and missionary schools to the promotion of education could not be ruled out. “We are not against private schools but are acting against unregistered private schools that must get them registered. We will not allow anyone to make education a business,” he said.
The Education Minister said that cheating is the killer of merit; therefore, stern action will be taken against cheating mafia and those supporting this dirty business.
The future of students getting success on the basis of their hard work is bright. The teachers and parents also deserve congratulations for providing better education training to them, he said.
The students getting success with hard work will be encouraged at every level as they would be provided all educational facilities, he said while addressing an award distribution ceremony for students who got distinctions in the Matriculation examinations of Hyderabad and Karachi Boards.
The provincial minister said that today’s successful students are the precious asset of the future and those getting success with hard work will be a guarantee to the prosperity and stability of the country.
