Very Unfortunate

Mr Shahid is totallay unaware of the ground realaties and is only relaying on paper staticts which is the gimmick of the current goverment, what does this Education Minister know about education, he is on a foriegn payrool, and what do genrals know about education at all , imposing them as vice chancellers will not change any thing rather it will detiriate the current system, hundreds of govt schools in sindh are in lethargic condition and nobody has the time to look into there affairs , if we dont consitrate on Basic education for a common man what is the use of setting up all these expensive universites for the elite , they can even go abroad and get them selves educated . We have to involve people who are deticated and have expearence in this sector, and we have hundreds of them , but unfortunatelly the miltary elite has an answer for all problems in retired Genrals , which is our biggest unfortune,

English language is not key to developement

I agree with Mr Shahid of 'social class difference' that emerge due to education system divided on English-Urdu medium lines, but, disagree with the statement that ' quality and value is associated to English medium education'as it shows that Mr. shahid don't know about countries like China, Germany, France or other such,where English is not known but they are developed countries. They prefer their national language in education. so Mr. Shahid you have to look and search the ways that lead the people to save their language, national languages are more helpfull for all levels of education to express yourself about events in surrounding and this can involve whole community in developement process.
