EVERYONE knows the present situation of the education system in Pakistan. But I particularly want to talk about the education system in Karachi. Government schools are like ancient places where a student is but the teacher is not, because unfortunately private institutions are materialistic rather than focussed on education.
They only provide things like heavy and expensive books, yellow day, blue day, well-furnished buildings and classrooms. The heads of private institution hardly know the meaning of education.
Parents are ignorant because they believe that paying high fees can give their children high education.
I suggest parents should ensure that their children get composite education instead of ‘branded’ education only.
