The state of education (II)

Published: January 16, 2016

TURBAT: Education is the basic right of citizens, which many women are deprived of in Pakistan. According to a 2015 report, millions of children are out of school and thousands of them are girls. Our education infrastructure is also in poor condition — lacking basic necessities such as boundary walls and toilets.

The situation shows nothing but criminal negligence by the government. The government needs to act to improve the state of women’s education in the country.
