LARKANA, March 21: Speakers at a seminar held here on Thursday said that frequent political interference had pushed the province’s education sector to the brink of collapse.

The government had reduced the national-building sector to a mere job providing agency which could only serve to end unemployment and favour supporters, they said.

They were speaking at the seminar on “Appraisal of education” organised by the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association at the Government Arts and Commerce College here on Thursday.

Dr Abdul Majeed Chandio, president of Shah Abdul Latif University Teachers Association, said the education sector had been made a job providing agency. He said that no country allowed politics to infect education but unfortunately in Pakistan it had become a common practice. Prof Mukhtiar Samo of Z.A. Bhutto Agriculture College, Dokri, said that the country’s educational system had failed to provide standard and quality education to nation’s children. He counted ‘frequent political interference in education, erroneous system of examinations and cheating culture as some of the reasons for the destruction of education. Prof Dr Nasir Ansar, director general of colleges, Prof Syed Ali Murtaza of SPLA and Ghulam Abbas Detho, regional director of the Peoples Primary Healthcare Initiative, also spoke.—BoC
