Govt striving for a uniform education system: Minister

ISLAMABAD, April 25(Daily Times): State Minister for Education Anisa Zeb Tahirkheli on Tuesday said the government would do away with the different education systems present in the country and gradually introduce a uniform education system through reforms.

"A uniform education system is needed to provide children with equal educational opportunities," the minister said while addressing a function here at the Beacon House School.

The function was organised to honour Waleed Amjad Malik, an A-level student at the Beacon House School System, who stood first among 700 students from across the world participating in the Human Rights Day Writing Competition recently organised by the United Nations and the Office of the High Commission for Human Rights in Geneva.

The minister said that the government was committed to develop Pakistan's civil society, which required quality education to the people.

She regretted that no government made any effort to introduce a uniform system of education after independence and as a result, the youth suffered. She said the government was trying its best to provide quality modern education at all levels.

She said that a conducive environment and proper guidance could lead children to the path of success. She also emphasised the need for the initial coaching of children by their parents.

The minister informed the audience that the enrollment rate at the primary level was increasing daily and that this was due to government's education reforms.

She asked the private sector to step forward and join hands with the government to ensure quality education across the country.

Anisa Zeb praised Waleed Amjad Malik for bringing laurels to country by winning the UN writing competition. "It's an honour not only for Beacon House but also for the whole nation," she said. The minister awarded the student with a Rs 10,000 cash prize, and congratulated his parents and teachers.

Earlier, Waleed Amjad Malik said that it was the topic 'Human Rights and Poverty' that compelled him participate in the competition. He said the credit for the success went to his parents who had provided him with the required resources.

His mother Mamoona Malik said that it was her dream to see her son win the award. "I am proud of my son who has brought honour to the whole nation," she said. She thanked her son's teachers for guiding him in winning the competition. UN Information Centre, Islamabad representative Ishrat Rizvi and Beacon House School Principal Naveed Kazmi also spoke on the occasion and congratulated Waleed Malik and his parents.
