The Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood on Thursday said that the government was considering launching a Radio Education program to magnify its distant learning project across the country.
While speaking to a private news channel Shafqat stated that the federal government wanted to strengthen the existing Tele-education system by including feedback mechanism to facilitate the students. The system for online education for the higher classes would also be improved with the passage of time, the minister commented.
Earlier, the government had launched a Tele-School program across Pakistan to impart education to students amid the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
To a question, the education minister said the National Coordination Committee would take the final decision in regards to reopening of educational institutions after Prime Minister Imran Khan’s approval.
”I think it is not possible to open school now, pandemic would likely to hit its peak in May as the experts have predicted so,” he added.
