Female Literacy Problems In Balochistan

Muhammad Shah

It is a fact that females in our society play an important role in developing all the organizations of the state. If we briefly observe, every child acquire his/her intrinsic values from her mother as compared to father. If mother is educated, she might effectively deliver the best attitude, behavior to her child. Definitely, that attitude would be carried on by every child in his/her daily routine work when to act accurately according to situation.

Now as far as Balochistan region is concerned, the literacy rate of female has been found to be 27 percent which is very low. Government of Balochistan has not designed any specific implementing draft policy for promoting female education in the province. Balochistan Education department has collapsed to maintain the essence of female education.

Recently conducted survey of different female schools in Loralai, Killa Saif ullah, Muslim bagh, Mekhtar, Sanjavi and Duki to assess the academic environment of girls schools, has revealed that the infrastructure system has totally collapsed. As far as rural areas are concerned, No transportation facility is available in villages, roads need to be repaired which are unable to be used for any kind of vehicle for getting access to school for girls. No monthly or annual scholarships are available for the students of rural areas. It also has the least number of educational institutions, the lowest literacy rate among both males and females.

Government of Balochistan should reevaluate the educational background of Balochistan in order to increase the literacy rate of female education in terms of providing all the core benefits like establishing infrastructure; furnished classrooms, library, laboratory, provision of safe drinking water, better availability of transport for pick and drop, monthly scholarships and health facilities in terms of establishing dispensaries.
