    We worry on one hand about not enough schools and colleges for girls and then this. There has to be a better way to use these resoruces. I think this must be a scam to keep people employed without really doing anything.

    It is really sad to read of this waste when the real needs are so many and so strong… I wish we would have better planning in Pakistan

    The likelihood is that this is a case of employing people that need not be employed or even may not be there. I CANNOT beleiev that there are no mre students of college age in the whole region, even if some might have gone to private institutions. This seems like a semi-ghost college.

    The solution, I think, is not that difficult. Either (a) recruit more students, or (b) transfer these students and teacchers to other colleges, or (c) turn this maybe into a high school.

    It is a known fact that our Government institutions are primarily welfare organizations for those who cannot be usefully employed elsewhere – at the expense of poors. Education of girls is more neglected compared to boys.
    There is a need to motivate and recruit more students.

    No doubt, it is a strange situation and a difficult one to resolve. We need somebody like Dr. P. Hoodbhy to help us out.

    If the private teacher’s schools (TS) do not lack the students, it means that these sdutents find appropriate jobs after their degree. Why the ban of employment of teachers in public sector is not effecting these teachers? It entails that there is a demand of teachers in the private sector. Now the question arises: why the Government TS students do not seek the employment also in the private sector?

    The possibility is that (1) the government bans them to work in private schools or (2) in spite of an excellent student/teacher ratio the students of Govt. TS are not as good as those in the private TS. Both of these possibilities seem to me absurd.

    In my opinion the government is doing everything for elite and as little as possible for the poor. Our schools and education system need more money and particularly more attention than the University and Research without ignoring their needs and importance.
