KARACHI: Sindh Education Minister Sardar Shah on Wednesday said that under Article 25, “we have to provide free education to children”.
Addressing a function to launch the Advanced Quality Alternative Learning Project, the Minister said that children in private schools know nothing but English, they know nothing about science and chemistry.
The Sindh Education Department and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) have jointly launched the project, which aims to promote education among women.
“We lack human resources, not money,” he said.
Highlighting the situation in government schools, Shah said: “Government schools are closed because there are no teachers. We will address the issue of shortage of teachers so that closed government schools can reopen.”
