Primary education to be made free

Karachi, May 26(The News): Left-over budget from different heads should be channeled towards primary education as eradication of illiteracy will be only possible if an adequate budget is allotted to the primary level education, local councillor Waseemuddin Siddiqui has said.

"The Federal and Provincial governments may have focused their attention on the enhancement of the literacy rate in the country but no work has been done as yet by local governments at the Town and Union Council (UC) levels to promote literacy," the General Council and Chairman Education Committee, UC 4, Railway Colony, Saddar Town, Waseemuddin Siddiqui said.

He expressed concern about the lack of effort to boost the rate of primary education while talking to the media recently. He requested the President, Prime Minister, Provincial Minister for Local Bodies, Town Nazims and Chairman National Reconstruction Bureau to allocate the budget to the UCs to introduce free and proper primary education to every child in the country, saying He reminded the media that according to a United Nations International Children Emergency Fund (Unicef) report more than 45 million children in the age group of five to 14 are not attending schools. This figure includes six million children from Sindh. Currently only 33 per cent Pakistani children are enrolled in schools but a lot more of them need to enrolled to elevate the level of literacy in the country.
