One of the major causes of failure of the educational system in Balochistan, is cheating. Whether it is school or college level, our students have become habitual of never trying to attempt their papers using their own mind rather than cheating.
On the other hand, the biggest cause of cheating is lack of syllabus and proper teaching methodologies. For instance; the subject of Balochi in college level yet does not follow a proper syllabus and when students ask their teachers, they are told that after demanding the Balochistan board Quetta several times, the colleges yet have not been provided with proper guidelines and syllabus.
Secondly, in schools, teachers are never serious with their teaching responsibilities. It is as if a burden on them to attend the classes. Because of their light approach to their responsibilities, many students get disappointed and many more continue knowing nothing. So, they cheat to pass the exams. Therefore, I request the government of Balochistan to take serious actions about this concerned issue and solve it as soon as possible.
