Turbat is one of the populated cities of Balochistan, but it is really disappointing to say that there are so many problems with its education system. Firstly, there are so many ghost teachers in every single governmental school. Most of the teachers are receiving their salaries, but are off duties. Some are doing their private jobs, and the others are working in foreign countries (UAE, Oman, Qatar, and Muscat). Moreover, there are some teachers who are present at schools but don’t enter into the class rooms to teach the students rather they pass their times by sitting at offices for no reason.
In brief, the education provided in the governmental schools of Turbat is unsatisfactory. Students are sitting in classes with their books closed. Major subjects like; physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics remain without teachers. While students are not taught throughout the academic year, they are compelled to use other means such as the cheating. This can only produce degree holders but not actual educated youth.
So I request the government and the concerned authorities to work out possible solutions for this issue as soon as possible.
Saleem Barkat, Turbat.
