Educational crisis in Balochistan has never been as serious as it is during the current educational emergency. It is disappointing to reveal that matriculate students of Kharan have not yet received their books from government.
Matric classes started from 1st of April this year. Currently 1500 hundred students are enrolled in high schools of Kharan. Majority of them belong to poor families which makes it nearly impossible for them to buy the course books on their own.
Delay in delivery of books means that students will not be able to completely study their syllabus on time. Surely, if the courses are not completed on time, then students will be compelled to utilize illegal means to pass exams, most notably cheating.
The authorities concerned should try to perform their duty diligently by delivering books to students on time. If students can’t even get their books on time then what’s the purpose of having an educational emergency in the first place?
Therefore, I request the concerned authorities to pay attention to the needs of students; because it is education which can help us to be successful in future.
