Village without school

Published Apr 08, 2013 01:03am

KAMAL Khan Lakhan in Ghotki is a beautiful village comprising about a 100 cemented houses. Having sweet underground water, the village is surrounded by strips of fertile lands producing the best crops.

The village is connected with the National Highway from two sides with two roads and is hardly at a distance of a few kilometres from Ghotki.

Regretfully, this village has no school. Over 200 children are deprived of education which is their basic right. The villagers themselves have reserved a piece of land for school and have time and again approached the authorities for posting teachers.But their efforts have not materialised so far. The villagers are worried about the future of their children. The government is requested to take note of the deprivation of the children and post some teachers to start schooling.

Our priority is our political leaders to go to school first not the young village boys and girls . All our political leaders decided to go to school in their respective villages. They were all setting under the green wood tree and studying. After a few weeks they were all sitting on the branches. Principal Zardari asked them what they are doing up there. They all said we are in high school

why wouldn't the villagers raise their own funds hire a teacher and start educating their children. They don't need government to step in. Matter of factly, they can charge the government salary of the teacher until government set up an organized school with more than one teacher. Their must be lots of help available in the village to help the appointed teacher in the meantime.
