THATTA: Academians, social activists, and members of civil society have expressed “great concern” over the declining standard of education and lack of basic facilities in the schools at a conference held under the collaboration of Peasants Struggle Forum Thatta and Press Club here on Saturday evening.
Addressing the conference Chairman Sindhi Language Authority Dr. Mohammad Ali Manjhi said that Education had been made a business that was beyond the reach of the poor. Talking about the standard of education in European countries he said that in European countries education was the priority of the governments in European countries where child protection agencies were playing an active role to bring children to schools. He said that the education system needed to be modernized.
Pro-Vice-Chancellor Sindh University Thatta Campus Rafiq Memon Said that: Poor standard of education in the district would leave an adverse effect on the coming generations and added that if measures were not taken the district would witness a sharp decline in literacy ratio in the years ahead.
Senior Journalist Dr. Shahid Siddiqui said that; Elected representatives, the corrupt coterie of bureaucrats, and untrained teachers were responsible for the declining standard of education in the district. Educational reforms were needed at grass root levels.
Social Activist Lutif Hallo said that Closed Schools in schools should be made functional and the teachers must be trained to meet the needs of modern-day education.
After the conclusion of speeches, a documentary throwing spotlight on the causes of declining education standard was shown to the participants of the conference.
