SHANGLA: Public and private partnership in the field of education is the key to improving the literacy rate in the province and will
help enhance facilities in the schools.
These views were expressed by participants during a programme which was held at Government High School Number 2, Alpuri in Shangla on Sunday.
The event was jointly held by British Council and Sarhad Rural Support Programme.
While speaking on the occasion, Dr Nasrullah Khan said public-private partnership will prove vital in providing better educational facilities to the students at schools.
He added with the coordination of British Council, most schools in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa will be equipped with new furniture, while bathrooms will also be constructed to provide a healthy environment.
Similarly, District Education Officer Saeed Khan said Shangla has the lowest literacy rate in the province.
“We aim to achieve 100% in the coming years,” he said. Saeed maintained that, with the help of international donors, they will be able to provide education to those children who left school due to poverty.
