Lack of education in rural Balochistan: Shaista Rasheed
Balochistan is the largest and richest province of Pakistan occupying at least 44 per cent of national territory. Unfortunately, the illiteracy rate of the province is touching the sky in rural areas. When it comes to women education, the scenerio is even worse.
Due to the ignorance and less attention of the government, in this modern time we lack an educational environment. We are deprived of basic facilities like schools and libraries. In oder to promote education, the federal government should deal with all provinces equally by building more schools and libraries to quench the thirst of knowledge. Due to the absence of an educational environment many of our youths are becoming drug addicted.
I myself belong to a rural area of Balochistan [Dasht] located in district Kech where one can find only one high school for boys; there is no any high school for females. It pictures a bad symbol for the government in rule.
The government should take action to fulfill the educational needs of every area of Balochisan_ particularly the rural areas. Because most of the people reside in rural areas and cannot afford an education of the city.
