Respond to student needs, Karzai asks private institutes
"It is their duty to ensure and provide modern age education to our children by hiring experienced and qualified teaching staff, making available modern equipment, better environment and curriculum which meets present age's requirements," a statement issued from the Presidential Office quoted Karzai as saying.
“Families who send their kids to private education institutes want standard education because they pay for it," Karzai added.
He said both private and public sectors had improved a lot compared to the past, something he praised as a matter of pleasure for the nation. The president also asked investors not to give money importance over the future builders.
Currently, there are 36 private higher education institutes across the country.
