The world is advancing in every field, but the people of Sindh are suffering under the old teaching practices. Inexperienced or low qualified teachers are appointed, both in private or government institutions. The future of students is at stake, as they do not get education, instead they learn bad manners and cheating methods.
Moreover, there are more students in a class than chairs, especially in government schools, and students have no choice but to sit on the floor. The government has failed to provide us with basic necessities.
Although every now and then we hear about the amount of budget allocated to the education sector, I wonder why we still have to go through an old curriculum, why we are destined to be study under uneducated teachers? Why are we not provided with chairs or desks? This is the pathetic condition of the schools in the whole of rural Sindh and of Karachi’s government schools. It is my plea to the education department and the government of Sindh to have pity on the youth and improve the standard of education.
This is with reference to the story “Spreading smiles” by Mohammad Bakhtiyar (YW, August 12). I appreciated the writer’s views as he expressed that Independence Day is a day to be celebrated with everyone around us and especially with the street children who cannot buy badges and flags for such a day.
Besides, we should keep in mind that together we should work for the betterment of orphans and children begging in the streets by providing them with education and things they need, which can make them happy.
Cut down your screen time
This is regarding the cover story “Cut down on your screen time” by Ambreen Kashif (YW, September 23). The article was the need of the time and it has deeply impressed me.
I have promised to cut down my screen time and I hope YW will publish more informative articles like this one.
The cover story “Cut down on your screen time” by Ambreen Kashif was very nice. All the tips mentioned in the article for cutting down one’s screen time were worth reading and remembering.
Here, I would like to add one more thing, that it is the responsibility of the parents’ to keep an eye on their children’s activities and cell phone should not be provided in school-going age.
