Punjab government colleges poor results

Collective performance of 26 Punjab colleges has been zero percent
Lahore, Sep 15: The Punjab government deserves a pat on the back for pulling up principals of a number of government colleges for deteriorating educational standards. Reportedly, the collective performance of 26 colleges this year has been zero percent. The gravity of the situation can be gauged from the fact that not a single student from 14 of these colleges could sail through the bachelors' exams.

This is indeed a poor reflection on the state of education imparted in these government-run colleges. But still the question here is: Who is to be held responsible? There is no doubt that the fault lies with the management of these colleges. However the Punjab government too cannot escape the blame of not working hard enough to turn them into places of quality education.

There are a number of factors that contribute to the failure of the system. In the first place, there is a dearth of qualified teachers. Low salaries and absence of social security nets for the teachers' community fail to attract those who could open up minds and train the youth how to think. Most important of all, the educational milieu so to speak, itself beggars description. While broken furniture and dilapidated buildings are commonplace, amenities like, labs, research facilities, libraries are but non-existent.

These colleges likewise have no idea of preparing a strong human resource base from which the students could later on get decent jobs or become useful members of society. What is worse, the political parties step in to claim their share of the nation's youth. Given their dexterity in luring the students to themselves, the trend of joining student wings of the national parties has affected a heavy toll on their ability to attend to studies.

Whereas in private sector, the involvement of political parties has been curtailed it is a virtual free for all in the public sector. Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif's vision of quality education must not stop short of carrying out reforms in these sick units. Undoubtedly, it is an uphill task but very much in the realm of possibility. The nation
