CHITRAL, Oct 13: District Coordinator of Alif Ailaan, Chitral Luke Rehmat have asked the government to enforce law for provision of free education to children and making it binding on them to benefit from the facility.
Mr Rehmat told a news conference here the other day that his organisation would continue its advocacy for enrolment of children in schools.
He said the advocacy campaign was meant to ensure that not a single child remained without admission to school.
The district coordinator of Alif Ailaan said Chitral ranked second in the province on enrolment rate.
He said quality education was a must for progress and for that, a series of efforts were needed like the strengthening of primary schools and establishment of a separate university and education board.
Mr Rehmat expressed concern over the deplorable condition of public sector primary schools in the district and said there were two rooms and three teachers for five classes to the misery of students and teachers alike.
He said in light of the number of public sector schools and colleges and strength of students, the district should have a separate board of intermediate and secondary education.
The district coordinator of Alif Ailaan criticised the elected representatives of Chitral for indifference to issues and challenges faced by the education sector in the district.
