The Balochistan government has decided to upgrade seven higher secondary schools and 80 model and high schools, along with activating 1,800 non-functional schools in the province, in a bid to educate more and more children. Provincial Minister for Information and Finance Zahoor Buledi held a meeting on Wednesday and reviewed the condition of government-administered schools in Balochistan. The minster in the meeting approved up gradation of 149 government school and promised to make 800 schools operational. “Following the education emergency announced by the government we have been keenly focusing on the education sector, and ensuring quality education environment remains our priority,” Buledi said at the meeting.
Unfortunately, he added that the previous governments failed in emphasising on the problems of the education sector which affected the stature of the department but “we have been utilising all resources to revamp the education structure”.
Adviser to the chief minister for education Mohammad Khan Lehri, MPA Lala Abdul Rasheed and education officials also attended the meeting.
