QUETTA: Balochistan Education Secretary Muhammad Tayyab Lehri has urged teachers to diligently play their role in the provision of quality education as well as the proper nurturing of students to ensure a bright future for the country and the province.

He said the emphasis must be on producing talented students rather than mere degree holders because a high standard of education is essential to cope with the challenges of the modern era, adding that all of society’s evils could be eliminated through quality education.

He further said an educated Balochistan was the vision of Chief Minister Mir Jam Kamal Khan, stressing that all of us must play a positive role to ensure the promotion of education and that backwardness in society as well as criminal activities could only be eradicated by promoting an educational environment in the province.

The secretary was visiting schools in Khuzdar including Government Model High School, Government Higher Secondary school in Kathan, Girls High School in Khairabad and Boys High School in Khand, among others. He also reviewed educational facilities at the institutions during his visit.

He claimed that the chief minister was taking revolutionary measures to promote education in

the province under his vision of an educated Balochistan.

He said the provincial government had allocated substantial financial resources to improve the standard of education across the province and that efforts were also underway at the district level to create an environment that emphasized the importance of knowledge, a move he hoped would help achieve the objectives of the province’s enrolment campaign.
