What a contrast

Published Mar 19, 2013 12:02am

DR Peerzada Qasim’s letter (March 13) was an eye-opener not only for those at the helm of affairs but for every person who cares for quality education for the nation’s youth.

From the beginning of 2013, for the betterment of education, enhancing grants to universities and introducing new technical subjects is well understood from the thought provoking letter.

Alas, we still keep on sleeping on these matters rather than making every effort for improving what is left of higher education. This will keep on happening as long as fake-degree holders remain in the assemblies.

Who will tell our Parliamentarian that Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
